|table supplies: glue, wooden small candle holder, wooden craft shapes and white latex paint.|
- glue (wood glue if you have it, i did not want to spend the extra couple of bucks)
- candle holder (wood) and a saw if you need to cut it to the right size.
- round, oval or square wood pieces (dollar store or craft store)
- white paint (I used left over latex indoor wall paint) and a brush.
To make this little table all I did was:
- Using a saw, trim the candle holder to the right size (it looked a little too tall to me).
- Glue the candle holder to the middle of the round piece of wood and let it set over night.
- Give the "table" a light sanding.
- Apply the first coat of paint. Let it dry, and then sand it one more time.
- Apply the final coat of paint.

Two more ideas for my next little table projects:
- A bar style table. I will leave the candle holder the size it is, paint it a glossy black, and then make a "granite" counter top out of polymer granite colored clay.
- card table for poker night. Same as in this "tutorial" but I will paint the table a dark glossy brown and then attach a piece of green felt to the top.
I think if I make the second table I will leave it out over night with little pieces of cheese on it. I think it would be just adorable to see a little mouse eating off of it. Perhaps he will bring a little spool to sit on too. That is possibly a situation that will go from cute to gross pretty fast though (ie. 1 mouse = cute, many mice = infestation).
