Default Garden coffee table

A friend gave me an old set of garden furniture she no longer wanted. I started to sand them down for a fresh coat of varnish and all was going good until I got to the table and realised that half of the slats were rotten beyond repair and the legs were rotten half way up.. I was just going to give up and bin it but decided to try and salvage it somehow.

I removed all the slates and chopped the bottom off the legs. I then found some old board which I screwed to the bottom of the table and using some left over tiles and a few slats that were not rotten, I tiled the top, separating each tile with a slat of wood. I then found a small biscuit tin, planted a plant in it and screwed it to the bottom of the table so that it could grow through the umbrella hole. I now have a lovely new coffee table and matching benches that is just perfect for relaxing on the decking.

Default Well done.

Absolutely fabulous. Love the tile design and the colour. The plant was ingenious!! You have a great eye to see potential in things and a lot of patience too I reckon.

Fabulous work. Don't know how I missed this. I love the plant idea. And the wood between tiles is a great idea especially if you want to use different oddments. Well done.
