Every season, we try to pick at least one large project that we can not only work on throughout the coming weeks, but also that we can use right away once it’s finished! This year, we looked out at our backyard and thought about how we wouldn’t mind having a picnic table to eat dinner on outside in the summer. Rather than buying one, we opted to look into how we might make one. That’s how we found ourselves scouring the Internet for DIY picnic table tutorials that might help us get started.
