Decrepit old picnic table gets a brand new look!


We had this old really battered and decrepit old picnic table that was so splintered that no one could even sit on it. I wanted to buy new but instead my talented hubby re-made it even better than new.
The before:  splintered, warped and basically ready for the fire pit.

All brand new and spiffy looking! He used screws instead of nails to put it back together as the nails were bent and worthless.

    Love the colour combo. Nothing like a planer and muscle to get things straightened out!

    I love red! Every piece you have here is beautiful. Thanks for sharing! Tuscan red is my favorite.
