From time to time when I’m strolling the aisles of household improvement suppliers I get inventive tips like these basket plant stands or these table leg candlesticks. The moment a lot more it transpired.

I was in the back garden office and noticed some curved resin planters and thought if I place two together they’d variety a pleasant foundation for an accent desk. It took plastic bonder and joint compound to unite them, and here is the last outcome:

 

I acquired all my supplies at Lowe’s which includes two 15” planter bases with the exact same circumference on best (I made use of these ones). In addition, here’s what you are going to will need to recreate: two 24” wooden circles joint compound 2” plastic putty knife plastic bonder wooden glue coarse sanding wedge Krylon river rock spray paint.

 

To make the leading, very first, glue the two 24” tops with wooden glue and established hefty textbooks on leading so they keep set and bond collectively. Permit to dry about 2 several hours. Coat the wooden circle sides and leading with two slim levels of joint compound. It’s practical to do this on a prop of some form. Sand concerning coats and immediately after next coat dries sand yet again to produce a generally sleek area. I remaining mine imperfectly smooth on top rated mainly because I appreciated the texture.

 

in advance of sanding:

right after sanding:

 

After dry, mark the underside of the wood circles with the locale of the pedestal in the middle for attaching in the future.

 

To connect the planters together use a bonding glue developed for plastic (see hyperlink earlier mentioned). Permit to dry a number of several hours then use a lot more joint compound to make any seams vanish. This took a several programs, sanding involving coats. It will help to spread the joint compound up outside of the seam a couple of inches to obtain a remaining clean look.

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

Use additional plastic bonding glue to bond and unite the major to the pedestal. Allow to dry, then use for display!

 

I’ll publish a video on Instagram Reels to display the system. I like how the desk turned out, the pedestal is absolutely unique! I’m motivated to use my remaining joint compound to generate texture on long term decorative initiatives.:)
