Rainy Day Project: easy container for center of outdoor table with umbrella
It's almost June and we've been tackling some pretty tough landscaping garden projects. For Pacific Northwest springs', this one has been pretty dry...until Memorial weekend.
While Hubby was getting drenched working on the retaining wall (more on that coming soon), I was under cover drilling a hole in a cute container box.
As projects go this one has to be one of the easiest ones I've taken on so far.
Once the umbrella was removed, I created a pattern of the circle and then traced it on the bottom center of container.
First I drilled a couple of holes that a jig saw would fit into. From there I cut lines from the hole to the traced edge. Think triangles that you can eventually cut out. Once I had a bigger opening to work with, I then flipped the box and finished cutting the circle.
The beauty of this is you can add flowers such as I did, or you can use this container for condiments, silverware, sunscreen, playing cards, etc.
Not a bad way to spend some time in the rain.
Eventually I did put on some rain gear and went and helped Hubby. Can't wait to show you how it all turns out.
