How neat is this idea, to convert a bird bath into a Glass Display Table. The perfect side table for an Outdoor Living Room! Seen here.

I just recently added this bird bath table to this post, but then I found more bird bath tables that I decided to show them all in a separate post. Bird baths provide great space to display beach treasures! They're heavy, sturdy and stable. And this is how easy it is to make them: Have a thick glass cut to size and attach clear rubber adhesive bumpers. And you have a table top!

I love the look of the table on the left. Beach treasures are placed on sand, and the glass top is a tight fit. I tried to find the source, but to no avail. Picture bottom right, via My Desert Cottage.

Then, a planter pot makes a great side table too! Via Sand and Sisal. Kim filled the pot up with pool filter sand. Head over to see how she put it all together! The great thing about repurposing planters or Pots is that they come in many different styles and sizes. So it should be a breeze to find one that fits your space. Or simply Use a Terracotta Pot and Paint It.

Love love love this Maya! My favorites are the ones with the sand added too. I'm going to do this on my front porch!

The bird bath with glass is quite unique. Great idea. Also like the potted sand with sand. Again, a conscientious thought.
