Travertine side table

Travertine side table

After I saw Geneva make this super easy DIY travertine side table I knew I had to make one for myself. Growing up my family had a beautiful travertine coffee table so this side table made me nostalgic!


I raced out to my local bunnings to grab the 4 supplies. All you need is 3x travertine pavers (found in the garden section) and 1 tube of Selleys Hold Up glue. The whole project cost me a total of $66 and only took about 15 minutes to make (plus 48 hours to dry)


Firstly I marked out the centre of one paver so everything would be even and then I glued the second paver on to create a T shape. I used a bit of duct tape to hold it in place while it dried just incase it fell over. I then waited overnight for it to dry before placing the top on. Again I measured and marked the pieces so the top was central and balanced, and then simply added some glue and placed the top down. I then had to be patient and wait 48hours to make sure it was fully set before moving it into place! 



Overall this was such a simple and relatively cheap DIY with maximum impact!
