Aged Metal Outdoor Table-Themed Makeover Day

Hi friends!

I am so excited about today’s post.  Today is my first entry in Themed Makeover Day.

This awesome DIY party is hosted by a group of fabulous bloggers, and I am totally psyched to join them.

Just don’t tell them I’m crazy, k?  I want to get a few projects under my belt before they catch on…

So…this month’s theme is Pottery Barn Inspired.

I do A LOT of browsing on the PB site, so it didn’t take me too long to choose a piece of furniture to hack.

I love the hammered  look of this metal outdoor table.




AND, we kind of need a small table for our front porch, so that sealed the deal.

I considered a lot of options for re-creating this look, and settled on these two pieces from Walmart.

A bucket, and a container meant to be the base for a beverage station.  $16 for both.

These containers weren’t quite rustic enough for me, so I used a little craft paint in Gunmetal to age the finish.

I just lightly brushed it on, then wiped with the old towel.  Easy peasy.

Then the magic happened.  (insert winky face here).  I inverted the beverage station base, and plopped it on top of the bucket.  Instant table.

I thought about removing the handles, but I like it like this, and it’s pretty easy to move around.


I used Gorilla Glue (affiliate link) to attach the two pieces, and some cookbooks as a “clamp.”  I’ll have to let you know how it holds.

Clearly, I’m a little fickle when it comes to my eating habits.

Here’s our new table on the front porch, a spot where we spend many summer evenings!

I can’t wait to relax here with a glass of wine.

    1. Thank you so much Breanna! I am HUGE FAN of your blog, and I’m thrilled to be joining Themed Makeover Day. Thanks for visiting! :)

  2. I need something for my teenage son’s bedside table, I think I might try this. I am thinking about possibly putting a strand of twinkle lights or rope lights inside as well. Can you tell me if the material seems like it would be too sturdy to cut through?

    1. Hi Holly, thank you so much for visiting. The containers I purchased at Walmart for this project were not a heavy duty metal, so I think it would be pretty easy to cut. Good luck with your project!
