Umbrella Stand Side Table



I really wanted an umbrella for our outdoor seating areas. It gets really hot in the summers in Utah and the shade is necessary for enjoying the outdoors. But they are kinda expensive. So when I found one on sale for only $25.00, I hurried and bought it.

I was so excited when it came in the mail, and pulled it out of the package ready to set it up, then I realized I forgot to buy a stand for it! Ugh. I jumped online and quickly realized that they are even more expensive then the actual umbrellas. Any less expensive ones had horrible reviews and weren't very pretty. So I decided to make my own, and I’m so glad I did!

I started by placing a 2" piece of pipe in the center of a planter then filling the planter with cement. After it set up, we tried out our new umbrella stand and quickly realized that it would be perfect with a table top so I would have a place to put my beverage. With 2 2x4s and a 1x3, the table top was born! Now we have the perfect seating area for the upcoming summer.
