Nothing had to be done to the painted frame.... it was just right.
I have this piece displayed in my booth, so its loaded with other shabby stuff....
Great for the patio.... a few chairs on each side, a tray of snacks... good times:)
Before.... with the bottom mesh frame unattached.  Couldnt really save this part.

Pretty easy project.  Again, we have LOTS of deck boards so we use them on just about anything we can think of!  All we had to do here was attach the boards, and re-label this as a deck table !

EdwardThirlwall writes: A bed cot is a good frame to work with that is versatile and practical in terms of its size. I have previously transformed mine into a mobile serving counter that I use to serve guests when they come over. I can easily prep foods in the kitchen and bring them out directly into the living room without having to transfer to any other additional plates or trays. Posted: 2:18 am on July 13th

JunkSituation writes: Thanks Tracy... I use the old boards for lots of furniture repurposing. If you find the table with the height that you like, see if built in a way that you could add the primitive boards over the old top for this look. Pub tables are hard to find, but are a gem when found! Good luck :) Posted: 4:15 am on April 19th
