Talking No More Silk Flower Envy - 3 Knock-Down Tables

Hi All!

I have to admit it - I had "Silk Flower Envy" You know when the big rvs pull up next to you and they have silk flowers on a table in the window?



Well, I fixed that! I now have silk flowers too! I finally got the pictures ready for the knock-down tables that I built. They have a pipe flange on the bottom, and slip into brackets on the front of the couch. I have lots of pictures and instructions here if you're interested.



It's easier to show you a picture than try to explain how I did it. I've been using the tables for 2 years and they work GREAT - no problems, and they're sturdy enough to support a laptop. The new 'dining' table is super sturdy. Let me know what you think!

Liz

Hi Liz,
The tables look nice...

Are they left up most of the time or do you "knock" them down?? If knocked down, where do you carry or store them

I totally dislike my "dining" table and am still trying to figure out what to change/make or what ever to make it easier to use... good ideas... Hmmm, maybe I'll make a sliding top...

Nice job!!!

Oh don't have the link to the instructions https://wackypup.blogspot.com/2016/11/silk-flower-envy-amazing-diy-table.html

There are lots of pictures and show how they store and how I made them. If the link doest work, google Wacky Pup.

Let me know if you have any questions. I'd love to see what you come up with.

I'd like to figure out a way to make a table top that can swing over your lap, but not be cumbersome or bulky. Any ideas? The snack tables do that but I'd like to figure out how to do it with the dining table.

in my camper, they store between the boxes under the couch - the pipes store down under the edge of the cushions.



The big one is up most of the time, it's nice to have someplace to pile stuff haha
