Refurbished plastic patio table


I've painted this table so many times. Then after seeing so many beautiful upgrades on this site using bright colors, I got this idea. I drew up several patterns and decided that the circles would look great.
Started with a well used plastic patio table and spray-painted it white
A little color on the legs
I cut cardboard circles in two sizes and used 4 colors
Almost finished. All put together but not done yet.
I let my daughter and two nephews put handprints on it.
I outlined the circles in black to help them pop a little and painted the kids names on their hands.
I'm not going to worry about the paint job being perfect. There are smudges and places where the circles aren't completely colored in, but heck that's what gives the table character. Next up will be the chairs.
