With graduation right around the corner, I wanted cocktail tables around the yard without the expense of purchasing or renting them.
Being frugal and practical, I looked around the yard and got a little creative. So here was my solution:
- large round tomato plant cages ($3)
- table tops ($10)
- paint (optional)
- tablecloths (I recommend a fabric vs. paper tablecloths)
Time: 2 HoursCost: $20Difficulty: Medium
Step 4: Then I pulled the tomato cage through the holes and cut the wire off at the height I wanted the tables. It might take a little time and muscle to cut the wire.
Step 5: I used gorilla glue in the holes to keep the table top in place, then covered the holes with some cute coasters I had from New Year's. I painted the top of the table with various sized round sponges. Clearly you can paint the table, seal the table, etc.
Suggested materials for this project:
- Table tops ($10) (Lowe's)
- Large round tomato plant cages ($3) (Lowe's)
