Matt built a picnic table back in 2011. It has been a great addition to our back yard and even though we re-stained it in 2012 it was showing a lot of wear from our Indiana weather. We love this table and it works well with our family so we decided to spruce it up with some paint rather than stain.
I was inspired by these pretty picnic tables!
We followed our usual steps: clean, sand, prime, and paint, but this time I had some help!
I chose a rich brown color and applied two coats. Matt made a hole in the center for an umbrella that is arriving any day!
The patio is coming along! Here is what it looked like after Matt used a sod cutter to remove a four inch layer of grass and dirt. That stuff is HEAVY!
Here is the first layer of paver base. Can you visualize the addition a bit better than my toy markings?
