Step 1

Apply E6000 to the bottom rim of one of the baskets. Place the other basket on top. I like to make sure the wire align. There is a part of the basket where the wire overlaps so I like to have that as the back and align that with the other basket going on top.

Gently press to make sure the iE6000 adheres. I also like to go around the rim where the ends meet.

I like to give it a little time to have the baskets set and attach before adding the top.

Once the baskets are secure, next add a ribbon of E6000 around the top rim of the basket. Center the pizza pan and place on top. Gently press to hold.

Give it a little time for it to hold and dry.

Once the top is dry, I like to turn it over and add a little more E6000 around the bottom rim where the pizza pan and basket meet.

Once dry, it’s time to spray paint. I apply an even coat of spray paint all over the table and allow it to dry. Once it’s dry I turn it over and spray paint the bottom.

Next I wrap nautical rope around the center of the table and attaching it with hot glue.

I took an extra piece of the nautical rope and added it to the center.
