Whether you're looking to enjoy a cozy chat with friends or savor a quiet moment alone, this cute table will become the centerpiece of your outdoor oasis.
So, let's dive in and discover how to construct this charming addition to your outdoor space!
1. Start with a Wood Crate
To begin, find a natural wood crate that will serve as the base of your table.
2. Apply Black Spray Paint
Give the wood crate a thorough coat of black spray paint for a sleek and modern look.
3. Choose a Tabletop
For the tabletop, repurpose a desk top or use a piece of wood that you no longer need.
4. Position the Crate and Tabletop
Flip the chosen tabletop over and place the painted crate, bottom side down, on top of it.
5. Pre-Drill Holes
Pre-drill holes in the four corners of the tabletop to prepare for securing the crate.
6. Secure with Screws
Using appropriate screws, attach the crate securely to the tabletop. Ensure the screws are long enough to hold the pieces together but won't go all the way through. Four screws should be sufficient.
7. Flip it Over
Carefully flip the assembled table over, revealing your low table that's perfect for floor seating.
8. Add a Table Runner
To dress it up, lay a table runner across the tabletop, adding a touch of style.
9. Decorate with Greenery and Candles
Bring life and ambiance to the table by placing faux greenery and candles on top.
10. Add Colorful Accents and Coziness
For a vibrant pop of color, incorporate some lemons or other decorative elements.
To make it even cozier, I also added some cushions to the ground.
