Build A Custom Table Top Using Epoxy Resin & LED Lights
Y’all this has got to be one of the coolest DIY’s I have ever done!
And it all started because of a broken patio tabletop.
This gorgeous patio set was purchased a little while back & the glass on the coffee table portion completely shattered, along with my heart.
Lucky for me my DIY partner in crime decided this was a great opportunity to kick this outdoor furniture up a notch with a DIY table top using wood, epoxy, & wait for it…..LED lights!
Table Top Base-
The reason I chose to use plywood instead of simply running 2 2×4’s across the base is because I need the plywood sheet to act as a mold for the epoxy center.
Adding LED Lights
After I had the parts completely combined & added in the Upstart white metallic powder & continued mixing away.
This is the hardest part of the whole project y’all, waiting for it to cure! The Upstart formula actually cured very quickly considering how thick the pour was. We were able to plug in the LEDs & test out the table the next day.
Drumroll please…. It turned out even better than we imagined!
The LED’s shine right through the epoxy & really accentuates the metallic powder.
It looks absolutely amazing & it is definitely the coolest outdoor coffee table I have ever seen!
Plus Upstarts Epoxy was so simple to use & very beginner-friendly! This is amazing because sometimes epoxy projects can be kinda intimidating.
Now I am searching the house for other things I can use epoxy on! Let me know what yall think of our new DIY epoxy table with LED lights!
