Spool Table

While looking for outdoor furniture on my favorite website, craigslist, I found a lady who sells huge electrical spools.  Since I had the day off, I decided to drive the 30 minutes to Battle Ground, WA to check it out.  Found one that was the perfect size for an outdoor table to use by my fireplace.  She didn’t think it would fit in my car, but I showed her!

Got it home safely, even though my gate was not closed or tied down.  It was totally safe, don’t worry about it.  Bought a grey wood stain for $5 at Home Depot to make it look weathered and seal it.

Finished product looks really sweet.  I can even pop and umbrella in the center to protect my delicate skin and sensibilities if I so desire.  Total cost $45.
