Sea Shell Outdoor Table

I wanted a small table to go between the lounge chairs I up cycled.
I had a 20″ terra cotta pot that I painted yellow. I purchased a bag of sand and a 24″ glass top. I already had a bag shells.
A terra cotta pot is very heavy. I wanted to be able to move it around without hurting myself…so I gathered pieces of Styrofoam and cardboard to fill the pot 2/3 up from top, this would keep the pot from being too heavy.

I cut a circle from cardboard that fit pretty good on top.

Then I added the sand.

Then I added the shells:

I don’t know how this one got lost…it was one of my first project to share on my DIY website almost a year now. It was really a big hit. On Hometalk , I won my first Challenge! Over 1million I was so excited.
It is so beautiful….so easy to make…and is a wonderful memento of your happy times at the shore. Think of all those shells you collect, and the special memories behind them.
You will love making this for your patio..

      1. Sleeping so much….strange..but it looked so much better than the last time. I took pics of both, you would not believe it. I almost sent them to you last night in a email, but I decided it might scare you! 😆😅😂🤣
