Supplies needed:
-2 stepping stones like these

-a roll of picket fence (you can buy it at home depot or menards)
  mine was white, but this color would work also

-a faux flower wreath or some other type of faux flower to decorate the table
-a glass table top (they have them at target and probably michaels or hobby lobby)

Its super easy.  All you have to do is place the stepping stones on top of one another in the place you want your table to sit.  These will be your base, them put the roll of fence on top of the stones.  It balances pretty well.  Then, use a hammer or shoe or something to push down the pieces of fence that are uneven.  Next, slide the flower wreath down to the bottom of the fence and arrange accordingly.  Finally, place the glass table top on the top of the fence roll.  Tah-dah! You're done  Grin

I have always wanted to have an uber girlie shabby chic guest room with one of my grandmothers quilts on the bed, and when I get this room, this is most DEFFINATELY going to be the night stand.

To say I love it is an understatement Smiley

That's an amazing idea.  I absolutely love it.  I can picture doing it in a more rustic version so that it will match my decor.  I'm blown away.  Great Job!

How adorable.  That would be the perfect table for a sun room.

Wow!  I am in LOVE with the table!  I might have to go and make one now.  But one, maybe two questions first if you don't mind answering.  1.) Did you use any sort of adhesive to stick anything together, and 2.) How much was the roll of the fencing?  Thanks!

Another question - how stable is the top?
