Mark Montano inspired reclaimed furniture DIY – The Creative Lady®
March is National Craft Month! I was inspired by Mark Montano’s video Easy No-Sew Ottoman to reclaim furniture and create a DIY. As usual, Mark inspires me to go into my donation pile to reclaim yet another item. This time, it’s a 3 legged circular table with a particle board and glass top. For years, it was covered in a sunflower throw and held a large, indoor flower pot. The glass was water-stained from years of water overflow.
Mark’s video is a true DIY as he to use a little elbow grease. Although Mark uses a kit, he still has some work to do: drilling holes for the required hardware and gluing the cushion. I will be revamping a reclaimed table with preexisting legs so I won’t have to do any drilling. The only cutting I will do will be reserved for any fabrics that I choose to incorporate. My DIY will also not include a cushion because I want to use the finished product in product photography for future videos and want to keep the glass top.
After seeing Mark’s DIY makeover, creative juices started to flow and I wanted to reclaim the table. My kitchen is yellow and I had purchased two MOLTE desk chairs from IKEA. I am going to to pair the former flower pot holder with the two MOLTE chair for a new seating area in the living room.
Next week’s DIY will be a tutorial of how I makeover the 3 legged chair. Honestly, I am still not sure how I want the final treatment to look but by filming time, I’d better have some options right?
Below are some photos of how the table looks now.
