Thrifty Thursday: How to make a table for your bathtub!!

Well we are officially in the swing of wedding season- aka CRAY CRAY time. We have 5 events in three days this week, bring it on!!! But how do we stay sane? We do lot’s of planning, prayer, have a glass of wine and then take a bath!! So we thought it seemed fitting to make a table for my bath tub, not only is this a thrifty craft but makes for a great present!!

Supplies:

  • Wood of varying sizes ( this depends on the look and length of your tub)
  • Wood Screws
  • Stain
  • Sander
  • Shellac

My tub is pretty beastly so my little “table” will be a little over 3ft long. Measure all your boards to match…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERARemember to always pre-drill with your wood this thin to avoid splitting!!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAdd all three panels and be sure to drill each board to the cross panel to hold them securely in place

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhoop whoop the main structure is done! Now for the fine tuning to make it pretty!

Sand your wood smooth, nope splinters in the bath tub just doesn’t sound fun. Then pick your favorite paint or stain. I did my usual that matches the rest of my home, “Ash”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAfter drying, add a coat of shellac to seal your hard work- after all it will be near water which could make for a bad combo if you don’t seal your wood.
