DIY Accent Table

Today’s guest post is a fab DIY accent table that you can make for only 30 bucks! Stylish Patina reader Michelle Lepak, owner and blogger at Dandelion Patina, submitted this stylish project. Take it away, Michelle!

“I am Michelle Lepak, and I create transformations for the timeless & trendy home. I live in Stevens Point, WI with my husband and two daughters. I love painting furniture, repurposing and DIY projects. My style is coastal cottage mixed with industrial.”

“I love hunting for vintage treasures and this project is about how you can mix old with new to make a high style piece while maintaining a budget.”

“I found a silver vintage platter at an estate sale and pieced it together with a metal base I found on clearance at TJ Maxx. I used E6000 to adhere the two pieces together and presto, a stylish accent table with history! A one-of-a-kind piece that you can’t find in any big box store. Timeless and trendy, and yes you CAN mix the two!”

Here are some shots of the platter and base before she assembled the table.
