DIY Patio Table

While remodelling our family room, I’m considering get rid of a coffee table and side tables. They have glass tops and metal frames. Should I part with them or do you have a repurposing project for them?
Indoor furniture made of durable and weather-proof materials such as glass and metals make great repurposing supplies, particularly for outdoors.
For instance, with a little paint and some spare time, those drab metal tables can be transformed into fabulous outdoor tables for the patio or lawn.
-- Metal with glass top tables
-- Outdoor paint (colour of your choice)
Step 1: Remove the glass from the table top. Sand and prime the table.
Step 2: Paint the table in the colour of your choice.
Step 3: After the paint is completely dry, replace the glass on the table top.
Step 4: Voila! An old table has been transformed into a fabulous outdoor accent.
