Tic Tac Toe Garden Table

by Ivylore
Inspired by a similar idea in pinterest, I found a round wooden table top at the local home improvement store-perfect! My son-in-law burned a tic-tac-toe grid onto the table top. I stained it and nailed it to a tree stump. I purchased some stones and asked my granddaughter to paint them as ladybugs and bees. Didn't they come out great? I found a little wire basket at the dollar store to keep them in. I bought a set of natural cedar curved benches, stained and assembled them. Now when my grandchildren visit, they will have a fun activity to do in the garden.

    I want to make this cute table for my granddaughters. I have a log of the right size, but I'm concerned about the table tipping over and hurting someone. Did you secure the base to the ground? If so, how?

    Where did you find the table top and what did you use to make the lines for the table top?
