Anyway I had seen several inspiration pictures on Pinterest (my biggest time waster and indulgence) and knew what I wanted to do with it - a table that would fit onto my very small patio here in the US and would also fit in with my country garden when we move back to our home in the UK. I made the roman numeral and clock hands stencils from vinyl using my Silhouette and painted it with regular latex paint, following that with a couple of coats of exterior varnish. I'm hoping it will become a bit more distressed as the seasons go by......
The more observant amongst you may have spotted the herb planter - another one of my makeovers using a pallet. I wanted something to hide the ugly air-con unit! I know both pieces are a bit rough and ready but I love them and they have given me a lovely little reading nook in my backyard :)
The hole in the middle of the reel can also be used to hold a sunshade umbrella - dual purpose!
I am linking this up to the under $100 linky party at Beyond the Picket Fence - a great blog to follow and get a truckload of inspiration :)
Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
