Restyled Scrap Wood Covered Table

6-DSCN5784Restyled Scrap Wood Covered Table

1-DSCN5765I’ve been shopping the barn again. My husband and I made these tables a few years ago to sell at a local garden store.

2-DSCN5767The cut out in the center is for a square planter box. We had these three tables left over, and since it had been a few years, it was time for a little restyling.

1-DSCN5810While I was in the barn, I gathered a pile of scrap wood. They had to be the same thickness, but a variety of widths.

3-DSCN5769I lined up several planks across the top of the table. They needed to fit from side to side without any hanging over the edges. My boards were a little shy of the width, so I separated them slightly. The gaps between the boards are hardly noticeable.

I cut each board to a length even with the table. With the help of wood glue and the power brad nail gun I had the top attached in no time.

4-DSCN5771I measured boards with the same thickness AND same width for the sides. I cut the first two boards equal to the measurements on opposite edges of the table and attached them in the same way as the top.

5-DSCN5773The remaining boards were measured and cut with the additional thickness measurement of the side boards. They were placed on the sides with the side ends overlapping the cut ends of the first two boards.

6-DSCN5784Then to marry it all together, I dry brushed everything…original table and scrap boards.

I’m finishing up the rest of the tables, but I already know square or rectangle tables are going to be on my garage sale list this summer. Think about it. You don’t have to worry about what the table looks like as long as it has good structural bones.

Wouldn’t a table with decorative legs look cute?
