Outdoor Table Using Pavers!

6 Materials
$35
2 Hours
Medium

This is the EASIEST concrete table top ever! The whole build only cost $35 and we use it constantly!

Lay out your pavers

I decided on a 3x3 square shape but you could do a single paver, a rectangle, anything! Make sure you measure precisely to get your frame the exact same size. These were only $1.50 at my local home improvement store.

Cut 2x4s

I used my miter saw to cut the 2x4s. You can see how the pavers will sit on the frame and the edges will be flush.

Cut cross supports

I added 5 more 2x4s to the inside of the frame for maximum strength. The pavers are heavy!


Attach

Using pocket holes I screwed all the framing together

Cut the legs

I decided to make my legs 10 inches tall for a coffee table height. I used pocket holes to attach.

Stain

Stain or paint however you like and dont spill it everywhere like me 🤪

Important!

Make sure you move the frame where you want it before you glue down your pavers because it gets HEAVY!


Glue on Pavers

Using the liquid nails I added glue all along the frame and simply laid the pavers on top!

    Since the pavers are heavy, why glue them?

    Did you NOT use the miter saw for actually having a “ miter “ joint and just for cutting your 2x4’s ?

    I love the idea and the look. I wonder, though, should there be something to brace the legs to keep them from splaying? I have a young adult granddaughter I can see using it as a seat. I also have a 100 lb. German Shepherd who I know would be sitting in the middle of it. You have inspired me and I think I might copy your idea, but I'll add additional horizontal boards between the legs for sturdiness. Thank you for sharing your beautiful table!

    If you don’t want to glue them then just put another edge of wood around the outside so you can pop them out from the bottom. It would make it easier to move too.
