C R A S H !

So, hopefully you got to see my tutorials about our new Concrete Planter Table & our Stenciled Outdoor Rug.  The deck is really coming together right?!? 

Well this is what it looked like after some crazy winds  pulled our umbrella through the table on Monday...

Now I usually love anything that sparkles, but not when it is the shattered pieces of our tempered glass dining table.

We definitely have other projects that we were about to start, but apparently Mother Nature had another plan... Time to build a new Outdoor Table!  Woo hoo!!!  Enthusiasm will grow after the initial ugh feeling disappears.

The metal base is still intact & sturdy, so we are thinking of adding a wooden top... I have always loved the idea of our Panton Chairs juxtaposed against a rustic wood top.

Maybe we'll even throw in a cooler for good measure...  That is the nice thing about customizing your own furniture.

So keep your eye's out for this unplanned tutorial.  & if you see any great outdoor table ideas, shoot them my way!

  1. We had our table do the same thing. :( No fun! I can't wait to see what you come up with.

  2. Hi Kristin-

    So sorry to hear about your table. Flying umbrellas, tables, and chairs has happened to me twice. The wood top option is a good one :) No more tempered glass all over. I love that table with the cooler in the center. I have had it pinned for my next house/someday file. It is dreamy! I also wanted to tell you that your rug came out great. Best job I have seen EVER of a painted rug.

    My best- Diane

  3. Oh no! That does NOT look fun to clean up. Love the planked top idea. Found a rug in stock at Home Depot this morning, just trying to decide what color I want to paint!

  4. Oh no, I had that happen to me last summer. I was outside and all of a sudden a big gust of wind came. I tried to grab the umbrella but it took off, and almost took me with it. I was about to be like marry poppins. Then the table came and broke on my head! Luckily I didn't get hurt but it was a mess!
    Way to look at the positive, now you get to build a custom table! I can't wait to see it!

  5. I'm with u a broken table means invention time. Have u thought of tiles down the middle to set ho dishes etc on. We have an outdoor pizza oven and were always running out of cutting boards to serve and make them on. So I got some 12x12 tiles at Home Depot, and made a holder with feet that sits down the middle of our large wooden table. Now we can put pizza or hot pans right own it, and if one breaks I just slide it out and pop in another one.

  6. Oh no! At least you're making lemonade out of lemons or something related to weather... I be the new one is going to look great!

  7. Woah that's crazy! I've been dying for a rustic wooden table so I can't wait to see what you come up with!
