I have collected a gazillion “pins” on Pinterest on my DIY page, and have actually tried quite a few. This is one of my best tries yet.
As always, I need to get better at taking “before” pictures but this table pictured above was a dirty electrical wire spool which hubby and I got on the side of the road. You can find a lot of them if you know where to look. We brought it home and it was dark and sticky before it’s outdoor shower. After fully drying it off, I covered the entire spool with a weatherproof coat of white Rustoleum.
I then simply lined the middle spokes with Rustoleum in Serenity Blue (the aqua) I hot glued a boat rope around the table and gave it a nautical look by tying the knot. The top already has a perfect hole in it just waiting for an umbrella!
