Bird Table Makeover Furniture Salvage DIY

It’s time for another Garbage to Gorgeous™ furniture salvage! The neighbors put the bird table in the trash, so I picked it up for an easy upcycle!

It was post-hurricane and the neighbors put this gem out in the trash!

I couldn’t believe it!

I loved it!

Just in case, I did double-check with them to make sure it wasn’t a mistake.

They said they did not want it back.


It was the perfect addition to the two chairs I made over for the she shed deck!

It’s been sitting there for about seven months and its time had come!

Directions for Bird Table Furniture Salvage

Step 1

I cleaned the table. It was metal and pretty easy to clean. I used TSP to best prep it for painting. When doing a furniture salvage, it’s always important to give it the best start to be able to accept paint.

Step 2

There was a little bit of surface rust on the table…mostly at the joints. I used the Rusty Metal Primer to give it a good base for painting it.

Step 3

I broke out the coral! It only comes in gloss, so that’s what I took. It looks a little darker in pictures. It’s definitely a bright coral color.
