– old 5 gallon paint tub – old garden hose – a random piece of wood – a collection of half full spray paint cans and glue leftover from other projects.
Step 1: Cleaning My Junk
The first thing I did was clean off the outside of my giant paint tub.
Step 2: Junk upon Junk
I decided to wrap my broken hose around the paint tub and glue it in place. I used some leftover gorilla glue – it was messy, but it worked!
If you were doing something similar and you wanted to disguise the fact that the base is a paint tub you could add more decoration like a thick rope for the part not covered by the hose.
Step 3: Using up Spray Paint
I decided to use up some black waterproof spray paint that was kicking around my house before it too went out of date. I used it to spray the hose covered paint tub black.
Step 4: Creating the Table Top
Next, I placed my old wood slab on top of it along with a random left over square tile from a bathroom renovation – just to give it a solid base.
