I finally talked my husband into re-doing/fixing/refurbishing our picnic table that has been under a tree for about 12 years. Before this, it was somewhere else in our yard–I don’t recall. My Bob the Builder Husband made this in thing in high school (we graduated 23 years ago!) It leaned quite a bit to the left and sagged here and there, but I was determined that it could make it through a re-do. He was quite skeptical and at one point through the protesting, I just said junk it. “Take it to the hole!” I wasn’t upset, but I knew he was not into the whole salvation of this thing. He stuck with it though and what was a super funky table (which I knew was redeemable) ended up on the road to FABULOUS-NESS! It was exciting to be a part of it’s transformation. The best part of the ENTIRE project–MY HUSBAND ADMITTED THAT I WAS RIGHT …the table was not ready for the junk heap! YAY! I saved the life of a table today and Bob the Builder admitted he was wrong. WOW!
I hate that I didn’t take a picture of the pile of planks it was previous to it’s fix-er-upper project. I wish I’d taken a totally BEFORE pic, but I didn’t. Please just imagine an old green poor sad table crying for an extreme make-over.
It is not finished yet, because I’m not completely sure of my entire design. I have started with it though. So, I want to share what we have so far. I’m excited to see it complete. Perhaps I will share the end pic when it’s design is finished and the clear coat is applied.
The pics start from right after it’s re-assemblage…getting ready to cover the old green moldy weathered surface of funky…ON THE FABULOUS!
