Southwestern Spindle Side Tables

I’m prepping for Market Days this Saturday, and needed a few more pieces to fill up the booth. I had some 15″ wood rounds I bought from Lowe’s ages ago, hoping to use them for the Tractor Seat Stools. I didn’t need them then, but they sure are looking great now!

All it took to build this table was a 15″ round and three stair spindles. I had a large stash to pull from since a friend gave me a bunch that she found on the side of the road, I believe. I cut each spindle on a 5″ bevel on both ends, parallel, and set them for a 24″ height. Then I just countersunk holes from the top and used glue and 2″ screws to attach the legs. 20 minutes later, I had two very cute stools!

Instead of my typical staining action, I decided to get a little fun with the finish. I painted them coral and teal, thinking I was going to do a beach theme and paint a sand dollar and starfish on the tops. Then I looked at the color combo a little more closely and realized how similar it was to my Southwestern Faux Transom Window.

See what I mean? Exact match! So I decided to use that design in the center pane and give the tops a decorative look.

I really love how shapely these legs are. It makes the table a bit fancier than the rustic look I tend to favor.

I’m really excited to see how these fare in the booth! Fingers crossed they sell quickly so I can go shopping 😉
