Hand-Me-Down Patio Table Makeover

Hand-Me-Down Table Makeover

DIY Spray Painted Patio Table

We've all seen these round glass-top patio tables before. And they're great! Easy to maintain, easy to look at. So when my neighbor asked us if we wanted theirs (they had gotten a new table), of course, I said yes! We were in need of an outdoor eating space. Easy enough, right? Well, not exactly. Me being me, I had to turn it into a project. 

I'm not really a neutrals lover; I love color. So I thought a little spray paint could really jazz this table up. I used Rust-oleum Painters Touch in "Lagoon." I got it at Home Depot, and it was the closest shade they had to what I really wanted (I've since learned that Michaels has a much better spray paint color collection).

After cleaning all the parts of the table, the next part was super easy: just spray paint! I had to do about two full coats and then a couple touch-up coats after.

And there you have it. Simple project, simple post. Just in time for the warmer weather. Although you may notice I'm missing a couple things. Yup, still looking for come cute chairs to pull it all together (Nevermind! Found some at the Country Living Fair!). Oh, and one of those umbrella holder things.


  1. How did you remove the glass from the table top for painting?

  2. I just have to say, this is EXACTLY what I was looking for. We were given an old table just like this and a mini version of it for a conversation set. They are old and paint is chipping. I was on Pinterest looking for ideas like this, but EVERY pin showed people covering the glass with a table cloth...permanently....why? The glass is nice. So, thank you.

  4. Keno had been very helpful. If only much more places were this particular pleasant to cope with

  5. Things to look for CR plastic patio furniture. Really like going to this place to determine what kind of blogs they've going on. Had some customized organizers produced, and may not need recently been more comfortable together

  6. Your website is terribly informative and your articles are wonderful.
