How to choose the right outdoor table for you
If you are upcycling an old door or tabletop, the first step is prepping the base for your grazing table. Give it a light sand with a power sander or sanding block and sandpaper. Wipe away the excess dust with a microfibre cloth before laying down a drop sheet and placing the table on top.
Apply a coat of 3-in-1 primer sealer and leave to dry. If you’re using a new door or tabletop, you won’t need to sand it back – simply apply the primer.
Now that the primer is dry, it’s time to apply your chosen paint colour. Make sure to give the paint a good mix before pouring it into the tray.
Apply with long, even strokes and let the roller do the work.
As the legs for this grazing table are metal, it’s best to use spray paint. Place the legs on top of the drop sheet, and don your safety gloves, glasses and dust mask. Hold the spray paint can 15cm from the legs to ensure you get a nice even coat, and the paint doesn’t pool or drip. Apply one coat and leave to dry.
Apply a second coat and leave to dry.
Once the table and legs are dry, position the table over the legs and secure with screws through the top, using a drill. You may need another person to hold the table steady as you drill.
Your grazing table is now ready to be assembled.
