DIY: Faux Stone Accent Table

From time to time when I’m walking the aisles of home advancement suppliers I get innovative concepts like these basket plant stands or these table leg candlesticks. As soon as much more it transpired.

I was in the yard department and noticed some curved resin planters and assumed if I set two collectively they’d sort a awesome foundation for an accent desk. It took plastic bonder and joint compound to unite them, and here is the last final result:


I purchased all my supplies at Lowe’s like two 15” planter bases with the very same circumference on prime (I utilised these ones). In addition, here’s what you will need to recreate: two 24” wood circles joint compound 2” plastic putty knife plastic bonder wood glue coarse sanding wedge Krylon river rock spray paint.


To make the prime, 1st, glue the two 24” tops with wooden glue and set large guides on top so they remain put and bond alongside one another. Enable to dry about 2 hrs. Coat the wooden circle sides and best with two slender levels of joint compound. It is useful to do this on a prop of some variety. Sand amongst coats and just after next coat dries sand again to make a generally sleek floor. I left mine imperfectly sleek on top mainly because I favored the texture.


just before sanding:

soon after sanding:


The moment dry, mark the underside of the wooden circles with the place of the pedestal in the center for attaching in the upcoming.


To attach the planters jointly use a bonding glue created for plastic (see hyperlink previously mentioned). Allow to dry a several hrs then use more joint compound to make any seams vanish. This took a couple apps, sanding between coats. It aids to distribute the joint compound up past the seam a pair of inches to achieve a final sleek search.

At the time the joint compound is sanded and clean, coat the top and pedestal with spray paint. I chose River Rock by Valspar to mimic a stone hue.

Use extra plastic bonding glue to bond and unite the leading to the pedestal. Enable to dry, then use for exhibit!


I’ll post a video clip on Instagram Reels to exhibit the process. I like how the desk turned out, the pedestal is certainly distinctive! I’m inspired to use my remaining joint compound to create texture on potential decorative tasks.:)
