I bought a patio set of furniture from Ikea when I was living in California around 2011/2012. I was using it up until last year as a desk for my iMac that I replaced with a DIY Computer Desk. My mom gave me the idea to make a wood top for it and turn it into a dining room table - so I did!

1x6 pine pieces cut to length - these will be glued and clamped together

The top sanded and stained with Provincial stain

The Ikea patio base with a fresh coat of black spray paint

The table flipped upside so the top can be secured to the base with wood screws
