If anyone reading this post lives in Calgary knows the weather is…unforeseen! Calgary has a few wind storms and a few years ago we just bought a new patio set. Less than a week later the glass that was the tabletop smashed! A week later my neighbour had the same thing happen. We fixed the table by putting wood in the frame. There was no way we were going to buy a new table so it was a cheap fix and since we changed it to wood we prefer it over the glass.
The paint we used was outdoor wood paint. In the middle of the table we punched a hole for the umbrella.
