i built a patio table

I wasn’t planning on building a patio table this weekend.  It just kinda happened.  That’s the norm for most of my projects so I’m not sure why I’m all that surprised.  Our back patio has completely gone to the dog, and I decided it was time for change.  
I had a super cool sketch that I made a few weeks ago (ok, really wasn’t all that cool), but now I can’t find it.  It had all of my measurements on it too 🙁  Anywho… I based it off of this table.  I love this table.
It’s just a cool $1,599.00 marked down from $2,950.00.  For realz.  I’ll give you a minute to clean up the coffee that you just spit out.
We good now?  M-kay.
This isn’t a final reveal, but here’s what I came up with on my own.  BTW, I have no clue what is up with the camera on my iPhone.  Everything ends up with a blue-green tint lately.  So frustrating!
This bad boy is fully equip with a flip top so I can store our outdoor cushions inside it.  I’m beyond done with our pup Archer tossing them on the ground so he can roll his mud covered buns all over them while chewing on his nasty bones.  Now they are safe and sound!

I’ll snap some good pictures and go into detail on how I put it together.  It was actually really simple.  But for now I’m off to walk past the living room windows one more time for no reason other than to stare at it.  Tell me you guys do that too???

    What an awesome table – great work! I love it 🙂 I actually prefer the panels on your version than the one for a bazillion dollars.

    As to the coloured pics, you may have a filter setting on your iphone?

      That was exactly what it was!!! I'm not iPhone savy and had no clue you could change the filter settings. That's what I get for handing the kids my phone when they're melting down in the grocery store :/ Thank you so much Talitha!
