Bring the outdoors inside by reusing wooden fence slats. With a light sand and a lick of paint they make a gorgeous tabletop. It’s a great way to recycle old wood too!
YOU WILL NEED
Timber table Sandpaper Cloth Undercoat and paint Old wooden fence slats Nails and hammer
You may need: saw and drill
STEP 1 Sand and prepare table legs and wipe off dust with damp cloth.
STEP 2 Paint table legs with undercoat and leave to dry. Apply two coats of paint in your chosen colour. We painted ours black.
STEP 3 Measure fence slats to fit your tabletop. You may need to trim to size using a saw.
STEP 4 Paint fence slats in different colours to create a stripe pattern when put together. Let dry.
STEP 5 Arrange slats on the table to ensure they fit correctly, then nail in place. You should be able to use existing holes from the fence, or make sure to pre-drill holes in the slats to make it easier to hammer nails into the table.
