Instant Table

This is a quick and easy table. I just put a scrap of granite counter top on top of a milk can. The milk can is from my Grandparents farm, "Memories". I did put some caulk around the top of the milk can, it's really pretty stable. Good old caulk, my dad uses caulk for every thing. It's the plumbers fix all "put caulk on it".

Thanks also for explaining "the chalk thing" I was asking about. Here in WI, we call it "caulk" or "caulking," so I now know what you are referring to (silly me). I never thought about using it to hold things together, so I learned a lot today from you!!!! :o)

Appreciate the fact you got back to me so quickly. gailmarie

Chalk is what is used around bathtubs, sinks, counter tops to keep water from seeping into the walls. It also will hold stuff together nicely. I just used it because I wanted to be able to take the granite off someday. Chalk will scrape off later, stays pliable. Posted: 7:23 pm on June 1st

(I'm a city girl, so I don't get the "chalk thing" you are talking about. Could you explain what chalk does? Do I need to add chalk to my projects???). :o)

Thanks for doing a close up on this. It sure is neat. Especially heart warming the milk can was from your Grandparents' farm. Those are the antiques that mean the most to a person. gailmarie
