Picnic table


My parents bought a picnic table for our memorial day picnic. Now that table was built but unfinished and not weather proofed and it sat outside for about a month. When it had that nice greenish hue of mold and mildew I decided one of us should probably finish it before it weathered away to splinters. So I grabbed the sander and got to it.

Here it is after about an hour of sanding and two coats of stain.

It’s been raining or really humid all week this week so I’ll have to wait until it quits for a while before I put a clear coat on it. I’ll take a picture and add it when it’s all done. 🙂


Finally done, check it out!

I like the way it turned out 🙂



I was amazed. It’s the first time it’s been outside in the rain. I am confident now that it’s not just going to rot away…as easily… anymore! 🙂

I enjoy crafts, cooking, movies, and a wide variety of other things which I'm sure you'll hear about soon enough. I'm new to the blogging experience and decided to give it a go after using Stumble Upon for the last few months. I've gotten some great ideas from a variety of blogs and figured I should do my part to spur the imagination and creativity of other stumblers like me. :P
