DIY: Faux Stone Accent Table

Often when I’m walking the aisles of residence improvement retailers I get inventive ideas like these basket plant stands or these desk leg candlesticks. The moment more it took place.

I was in the back garden section and noticed some curved resin planters and believed if I set two jointly they’d kind a awesome foundation for an accent desk. It took plastic bonder and joint compound to unite them, and listed here is the last result:


I acquired all my provides at Lowe’s together with two 15” planter bases with the identical circumference on top (I utilised these ones). In addition, here’s what you’ll want to recreate: two 24” wood circles joint compound 2” plastic putty knife plastic bonder wooden glue coarse sanding wedge Krylon river rock spray paint.


To make the top, to start with, glue the two 24” tops with wooden glue and established major guides on major so they continue to be place and bond with each other. Allow for to dry about 2 hrs. Coat the wooden circle sides and best with two slim levels of joint compound. It is helpful to do this on a prop of some sort. Sand concerning coats and after second coat dries sand all over again to build a mainly easy area. I left mine imperfectly sleek on top mainly because I preferred the texture.


in advance of sanding:

immediately after sanding:


The moment dry, mark the underside of the wood circles with the locale of the pedestal in the centre for attaching in the future.


To connect the planters jointly use a bonding glue created for plastic (see hyperlink previously mentioned). Allow for to dry a few several hours then use additional joint compound to make any seams disappear. This took a several purposes, sanding involving coats. It will help to distribute the joint compound up outside of the seam a few of inches to achieve a ultimate smooth glimpse.

I’ll write-up a movie on Instagram Reels to clearly show the process. I like how the desk turned out, the pedestal is unquestionably unique! I’m impressed to use my remaining joint compound to build texture on potential attractive projects.:)
