Making A Little Table For The Gazebo

Last week when Kim and I finished arranging the things in the gazebo she remarked I needed a little table by the chaise lounge. I knew I didn’t have a table that would work, but I knew I could figure something out.
After a lot of searching in the house I found these 2 footed bowls I had bought at an after Christmas sale.
I figured out that if I glued the bases together I would have my little table. I did have the perfect glue that I had bought for a different project that is yet to be created!
But the stumbling block was finding something to make the table top. I searched the house from top to bottom and everything was either the wrong size, too heavy or the wrong shape. So after several hours I decided to search on line.
I spent several hours on line looking for something that was “just right”. When I found what I thought would work it didn’t give all the measurements but I was willing to take a chance. It said it would take almost 2 weeks to get it, yet it was here in about 4 or 5 days.
This black and white metal spatter ware tray was perfect. It fits inside the opening and rests on the ridge at the top. I can take it off to wash if I want to.
The adhesive I used will take about 2 weeks to fully cure so it will stay in my workroom until it is fully cured and then I will have my perfect table.
