1. Cut 4x4 to desired height for table legs.



2. Connect the 4x4 with the 2x4 pcs. to create a base.


3. Cut strips of melamine and create another box with a solid bottom (strips should be about 2" high).



4. Spray glue on the bottom of melamine and roll leaves or other items to a flat finish.


5. Mix concrete with a corded drill and a paddle bit, slowly adding in the dye and water.



6. Pour the concrete in the melamine box.



7. Smooth out the top and tap the sides with a hammer to get out any air bubbles.


8. Gently knock off the melamine and attach to the wooden frame by using anchors or "L" brackets underneath.



9. Using a cold chisel, knock around the edges to give it a rustic look.
