      Rescued a BBQ Table Cheap

      So we have this BBQ table that was in rough shape. It had faded and rusted and top piece of wood was black with mildew, was cracking and faded. I thought about throwing it away and getting a new one. Then I thought about just replacing the top piece of wood but wood pieces at Home Depot were pretty expensive, even for smaller pieces.

      So I sanded and cleaned the existing piece. I stained and sealed the piece with left overs from some stairs that I had replaced. I had a can of rust proof spray paint laying around so I sanded the rust off the best I could and painted the stand.

      I should have taken a before picture but didn't think it would turn out. The paint job is far from perfect but for a first go I think I did okay. It's pretty much a newer looking table that I fixed up with stuff I had laying around. If I get a season or two out of it that's worth the hour or two I put into it.

      Thanks Everyone!!

      It's funny how the mind goes to throw something away instead of fix or re purpose it. I have been working on a few things. I can see where people pick up cheap items on kijiji or facebook, fix them up and resell them.

      It look great! A little time, a little elbow grease, a little paint. You'll get at least a few years more use.
