Cute Little Outdoor Table

I found this little table by a dumpster. I just liked the shape and thought it was too cute to throw away
Time: 3 Hours Cost: $20 Difficulty: Easy
It had multiple coats of paint and holes in it. So I started by sanding it down until it was smooth
you can see the holes
must have been red at one time.
I thought I would paint an accent color on the backside of the legs, just a little pop of color peaking out.
I painted the outside of the legs a deep brown
I had a poster made with this background and one of my favorite sayings. "You always had the power" Glenda the good Witch
I covered the top of the table with the poster and several coats of modge podge
I had the poster made at vista print, it's made for the outdoors so it won't fade. It cost about $9
when I got the top done I didn't like the brown legs so I decided to go back and paint them turquoise
I like the legs much better . I put 3 coats of poly on it and now it sits on my back porch.
