Passion Parade Link Soiree

Hello World! 
It's that time of week to parade your passion once again! What have you been up to lately? I just finished my pending table project that I've been wanting to work on for a long time.


It all started when a friend gave us an old telescope which I estimate from 60's or 70's. We had the telescope assembled, but the box was a little too big to fit in any of our tiny storage room. And since we've been lacking our living room tables, I thought I could make use this big bulky box and never have to worry about storage space!


I went to Goodwill for a recreational visit and guess what I found? A pair of never been used table legs! So what do you expect I did? I grabbed it and just bought two more identical legs from Lowes. 
I used Valspar primer for plastic that happens to work well with wood too! I found this pretty yellowish paint at mis-mixed paint section for $1.25 and painted the legs.


My main plan was to attach the legs directly to the box. It was very tempting but, I din't want to ruin it. I bought the cheapest wood for the base but thick enough to screw the legs on. I also bought top plates...


to easily attach the legs.


I didn't want any exposed wood. Instead of painting it, I used this decorative tape which has the same shade of yellow close to the paint I used.


Voila! I got myself a table!

  16. Loved your table and may have to look for something like this so I could create a narrow table for my foyer using your idea. :D Thanks for sharing on BeColorful so I could feature you today on this week's Motivated Monday.
