Outdoor Table, Hurricane Proof

3 Materials
7 Days

Always loved the look of Pottery Barn, West Elm , Restoration Hardware outdoor tables . Just don’t have the wallet for it.

my husband and I just finished our covered patio so we decided to give it a try and make our own.

Built the frame for it
Poured the concrete

It was a labor of love (lying). We did it by hand but boy,I recommend to rent it from HD or other store . It would save you some time but then you wouldn’t burn many calories and you would not have sore arms the next day. So pick or choose.

We made in our garage

Took a while to Kate it smooth and get all the air bubbles out. Well, at least we tried

Next day it was still drying
While it was drying we built the frame for it
Took the sides of our frames off
This would be need to be flipped. Which requires many people because it is heavy
The final product

We made a mistake ( rookie) using the bar inside and not having to let sink by itself ,instead we put it in the middle which resulted to sink onto the button of the table but we don’t care. It adds character to it

From the side.

If we sell the house it will stay here. Ain’t gonna move it. Very heavy so it won’t blow away for sure.

Built the thing to the bottom so we can rest our feet on it. Just being extra ( as my kids would say it)
