Project Renovation - Picnic Table: part 1
With the help of a friend, I received this old picnic table for free! It's one of those older styles that were around more when I was a kid with a separate table and 2 benches. If I went and purchased something today it would be one of those attached pieces that sometimes tip when you only have a person sitting on one side.
Now comes the renovation! I started with a good scrubbing. There were a lot of spider webs (shudder). I did debate replacing one of the boards which was on the verge of rotting. After deciding against it comes the repainting. I chose yellow for the new base color. I'm also debating doing a splatter paint decorative affect once I get the base color down.
As I said, this is part one of this project. Please check back next week to see the conclusion and final results.
