a little red picnic table

I'm one of those people that thinks anything miniature is cute.

Now don't start sending me tiny spoons or doll furniture. I don't collect it, I just think it's cute.

I digress.

Connor has a birthday coming up (I can't believe it's been a YEAR!) so I made him a little picnic table. It's so little. :)

You read that correctly.

I MADE IT. all.by.myself.

ahem.

I got the plans from Knock Off Wood, went to Lowe's and bought the lumber, and then got to work. It took two days to build it because I could only work while the boy was napping (he's not a fan of the Miter Saw). I finally finished painting it today.

What do you think?

Before the paint

and after!
Silas will be getting one of these. :)

  3. Ohh I had a little picnic table like that when I was little, I used to have tea parties outside with my little brother. I don't think it's in very good shape anymore, I think I need a new one.
