Good ole’ fashioned wood picnic table!

I always wanted a wood picnic table.
I had a few inquiries on this table, and I realized I never have shown it nor talked about it!

I have such fond memories growing up, hanging out  in my Grandparents back yard, cook outs and sitting around the picnic table.
When we decided we were going to take on the backyard makeover, the first thing I said to Mike is I want a picnic table.

Much to our surprise, they are very reasonable!
We scored this one at Lowes I believe for $99.00.
Ya know, I was thinking this would even make a great indoor kitchen table, if you wanted that farm house kind of look, and on a budget who can beat that price.
 You can paint it an old white color, distress it, I think it would be really neat!

As you can see it comes Natural, with  a few nuts and bolts to skrew in….

We loved the colored stain so much with our chairs, we decided to do the table a stain versus painting as well.

Good product here, I would highly recommend!

There are lots of colors to choose from as well.  As you can see we chose Blue.

I was really set on bringing the indoors out, and wanted our backyard area to feel like an extension of our home, cozy, and colorful!

These Tiki’s are really neat.  I purchased them at Walmart and they give a wider flame to appear like a real Tiki torch.

I can change up little vignettes outside as well.  Believe me the neighbors think I am so strange…
they always slow down and ask what am I doing now, I have seen some even shake their heads…

Quite frankly, I am having fun!

I know you must be dying to see the other side here behind the picnic table..

FINALLY complete!
I will be showing you on Monday for the Newbie party.

Have a great day.
Still time to get in on the magazine copy cat challenge

May be a small party as a I expected but I will tell you it is hopping with views and interaction.

    We are looking for old fashioned weathered all wood picnic tables like you have in the photos on your website. Can you give me leads on where I can get them. We don’t want them to look new but we need them to be sturdy and in good shape, etc.
    Any help you can provide would be appreciated.

      Mark we found that picnic table at Lowes Home improvement and then we stained it accordingly. My husband uses a marine varnish on them every year to protect it and each year he does it it takes on even a cooler look.
