Picnic Table Redo



Today I will show you one of my bigger projects and why I don't like my husband for the duration for my projects.

I got this table from my brother-in-law whom had to move into an apartment and couldn't take the table with him, so he gave it to me.  This was back before I had my backyard redone.  But I willingly took it knowing that one day I would make it fun looking.  It had such good bones that all I really had to do was sand it. 

Now this would be why I don't like my husband during projects, He now makes me do them all by myself.  I love him after and before, but not during.   Matt used to help me on my projects and lend an opinion, now he says that it is my project and will only help with heavy lifting.  I love to have his feed back and there are a lot of things that I don't know how to do, that he would help me learn.  Matt says that he is sick of all of my projects turning into his.

But enough of all of that.  I took the table apart and sanded like a mad woman.  Then I found a really great stain that made the job awesome and fast, it is a stain and sealer in one and comes in opake colors, I picked a sky blue color.  Then I wire brushed the legs and spray painted them.  Chey picked a nice yellow orange spray paint for them, I wanted green but she said we have to much green stuff.  All in all it turned out great and I had a bunch of compliments on it.

We love it and love to eat dinner at it.
