First off, I would like to THANK each and every one of you for stopping by my little blog each week. I really appreciate it, and I hope that I can grow this blog into something much bigger one day. But for now, I am going to concentrate on posting more frequently and giving you guys more DIY’s & Home Décor content!
Today’s DIY is all about patio décor. My patio décor is slowly coming along, its not quite there yet, however, I wanted to show you guys where I am at so far. Obviously, when you’re my age and you are slowly getting into your dream career you are currently working multiple other jobs to make ends meet. With that said, you’re not making the money you wish you were, so you have to do things on a budget, which is exactly what I did here.
For this DIY Door Table, I literally had this door laying around my yard that was gifted to me years ago. One day I thought I would use this as a headboard but when you have a one bedroom you can’t exactly have 2 headboards and one bed. So I thought hey, why not make it into a patio table? So Mike and I grabbed some scrap wood from our old deck and made some legs and braces for the table. I then painted the table with Rust-Oleum Chalked Ultra Paint in Aged Grey to keep the rustic flow going. And that is pretty much all you have to do to build the table.
For the black patio chairs that I added with the table, I purchased them at Canadian Tire for $40 each. And to complete the patio table I needed a glass top to protect the aged door and the glass levels the table surface. For this I measured the correct size and ordered the glass from Sutton Doors and Glass for $235.
Altogether this project costs me just under $400, which includes the glass top and chairs. BUT this table is huge, rustic, one of a kind and a great conversation piece so I’m okay with the price and for a full patio set its not that bad of a price.
Later this week I will be blogging the rest of my backyard patio décor.
I hoped you guys liked this DIY Vintage Door Patio Table and that it inspires you to make one for yourself!
