SYTYCD Week 8-Galvanized Table


P1020183 

 Don't you just love when you can take a unusual found object and turn it into something functional? I found this old galvanized burner at a garage sale and thought when I bought it I would just stick a plant in it and put it on my porch.

Then after awhile it hit me, I could make a table out of it. Rummaging through my house I found this metal table base in the garage. I purchased a wood round for the top.

P1020056


I purchased a sophisticated finishes rusting kit from Michael's to turn the wood round into what looks like an old rusty table top.
I painted the metal base with several different browns and applied the rusting solution to certain areas. Following the directions, I then applied the rusting solution to the wood round. It's a process that rusts with time but requires you to continue to apply more solution until achieving the effect you desire.
If you have not tried using the rusting kit for a project, you really must.

I secured the all the pieces with liquid nails for stability.


And this is how it turned out.....my one of a kind rusty galvanized table.

  25. Hi Trixie! Saw you table here on SYTYCD blog. I have some old brass lamps and wondered if this would work on those? Just wondering how it worked and if you tried it on any of your metal? Our Michael's doesn't have it so I thought I'd ask you directly. Very fun table!
