Overview

A plain door and a pair of sturdy saw horses are all you need to make a base for an eye-catching � and on-trend � grazing table. Paint the base in colours to suit your party theme to keep the look cohesive, and layer the finished table with food-safe board set at different heights for a striking display.

Steps

1Prep the table base

Paint the door with at least two coats of two-in-one paint using a mini roller, leaving to dry between each coat. Allow to dry thoroughly.

2Prep the table base

3Paint the saw horses

Wear safety gear, including gloves, eye protection and a mask, and work in a well-ventilated area to spray paint the saw horses. Apply a spray primer and leave to dry, then apply two coats of spray paint, leaving to dry after each coat. Allow to dry thoroughly.

4Secure door to saw horses

Position the door over the saw horses and secure with 60mm screws through the top.

5Layer the display

Position the pavers at different heights as stands for the cut laminated panels (ensure any board you use is food safe). Apply construction adhesive between them to prevent movement, clamp and leave to dry.

Health & Safety

Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
