The table works well in my porch.  The clay bottles were found buried near an old brickworks, the spider plant rests in an old basket
Once sanded, I painted the table white then added this historical map of Great Britain which was the perfect fit.  I gave it an antique stain and varnished it for durability
Still going strong!

Found this old table on the roadside some years ago, brought it home and gave it a face lift.  Originally it was a dark and dingy brown but had a lovely shape and great potential.
