Standing at about 1.5 feet...IT'S THE MAGAZINE MINI-TABLE!!
If you're like me you bought a bunch of 'get your best beach body' magazines in the spring. Well face it, it's late summer, you don't have the body but you DO have a pile of magazines. What do you do with them? Make an awesome table!You Will Need
Magazines (I used about 10, but it depends on the size of them)
Glue gun + sticks (LOTS of them)
1 Wooden dowel or pencil
2 Serving trays (I got mine at the dollar store!)
glue-stick or tape
Mod Podge + brush (optional)Step 1:
Roll up 1 magazine page around a dowel and secure with glue or tape.Step 2:
Take the dowel out and flatten the tube.Step 3:
Roll up the tube so it forms a short cylinder. Repeat steps 1-3 around your first rolled up tube.Step 4:
Here is your rolled up tube cylinder. Make about 120 of them. Yes 120!Step 5:
Divide your 120 rolls by 4 (table legs) and glue them on top of each other.Step 6:
Clean your trays with a towel.Step 7
This step is sort of optional: decoupage the trays. I thought it gave a good matched look to the table's legs.Step 8
Once the glue from the decoupaging is dry, attach the legs to the table. This part is tricky and you might need a second person to hold up the legs while their being attached.
Once the glue is dry, you have your own table. BTW, I apologize for the terrible pictures, I am NOT a photographer, so thank you for reading.
