I showed you this third oval table in the last post about the nesting tables. Here’s the ‘how I did it’.
I’ve had this old pedestal sitting around for quite some time; pondering what to do with it.
This oval piece of wood was in a batch of stuff that was left behind at Michael’s house when I moved last summer; that I recently picked up. It was the perfect size to use as a table top for the pedestal. Since the pedestal was a dark brown, I did a dark brown base coat on the oval. Two coats of aqua and lots of sanding. I wanted his one SUPER distressed.
I painted the base aqua and distresses it to bring out all the pretty detail. Once both were painted, it was time to put the two together.
Fortunately for me this pedestal base already had a cross bar for attaching to a top already in place. (had it not come with one, it’s pretty easy to make and attach one) First ‘found center’ on the underside of the table and marked it. Then I glued the base to the top with e6000; and let that set overnight. Then two screws on either side of the cross bar to. Most people will JUST use screws. I prefer to ‘glue and screw’. (and if you’ve ever watched “Holmes Makes it Right”, Mike Holmes is a proponent of ‘glue and screw’!)
And here is the finished table in my booth at Stars. I especially like that it is MUCH more distressed than the other two.
This is the current front view of my booth; the trio of tables is right behind this stuff.
