I admit it. For two years I have had a cable spool as a patio table and another smaller one as a side table for my BBQ. It served its purpose well. Had a hole in the middle for my umbrella. I covered it with festive vinyl. But this summer the spool had to go and was replaced by a garage sale table (a step up from the free cable spools Ü).
The spools then became an emergency room visit waiting to happen. The kids rolled on them, had races with them, stacked them to jump off of and onto the trampoline. I decided I did not want a lawsuit from some neighbor, so hubby tore them apart. The sides were made of some great wood (I am not sure what type, but hard). They had a slight curve to them , but I used them anyway to make these signs. I plan on using the round tops for tables, but haven't decided on legs yet.
I have received two great blog awards and I will share these and pass them on tomorrow as it is time to go watch a family movie. Blessings!
