We've had this old picnic table for like a gazillion years! It's warped, splintering and all around un-balanced.
I wanted a new and improved version like the cheery and bright one's I've seen around bloggyland.
My industrious hubby, being ever so frugal and handy, declared "that he could make it look a lot better and maybe as good as new."
He planed all these pieces down and ....
he went to work priming and painting. Several coats for each piece.
And now the task of putting it back together again. It was originally put together with nails which were all bent and pretty much useless. Dan used screws which will hold better and make it more sturdy.
Ta-da! New and improved old picnic table with a new look.
I think it looks pretty spiffy!
I also ordered a navy umbrella for it as this side of the house get's a lot of sun.
See how green it is out there? We've had a lot of rain and a lot of sun and things are as green as can be.
Next week is our local county fair. I love Fair's and I have a few things to enter. I will share those with you a little later.
Have a great week everyone!
