Outdoor Console Refresh {A DIY Project}

Work continues on our back porch refresh, we're not ready for the reveal yet, but progress is being made so I thought I'd share a little DIY we recently completed for the space.

Adding additional surface area for food, drinks and entertaining was high on my list of must-haves for our refreshed space. I wanted something that would coordinate and tie in our iron and stone dining table, but after lots of endless searching I wasn't finding anything I loved that was also in the budget. Typical, right? 

Enter this beauty.

Ok, so she's not much to look at now, but she does have iron legs (that have a certain European feel to them) which means she can obviously be outside - bonus. And she's fairly budget friendly - also a bonus. So let's see what we can do with a little creative thinking.

First a trip to the stone warehouse for the perfect remnant. 

Then a little coat of paint to tone down the gold.

Yes, I'm usually a fan of gold, but not on this table. Outside. On our porch. 

Voila! As they say...

With not much effort and a minimal extra cost I got the perfect console for our outdoor space. Yeah for progress! And porch weather. And wine on the porch. And just wine in general. 

More to come...
