Met Monday-Table from Wall Art

Hey Ya'll!
It's Met Monday over at
I'm sharing my new coffee table!

You may remember this from an earlier
post about my deck re-do.


I mentioned that I had an interesting
 "leg" idea to turn this metal wall art into a
coffee table for the deck.
Well, here was the idea


15" plant hangers for $6 each.


The obligatory black spray paint.
I painted this table too while I was at it.


so much better!


Back to the legs...
I used this welder adhesive to add
a bead of glue to both the table frame
and the table legs.


waited 10 minutes


and welded together. 
I used tape and a few screws to keep it together
while it dried several hours.




A little plexiglass for the top and Wala!
A perfect outdoor coffee table for under $60!

  14. Brilliant...I've got an old metal headboard and footboard to a twin bed that I want to attach or at least use with a free standing twin frame...any ideas? I'd appreciate any ideas...I'm sort of stumped and don't want to just attach to the wall.
