Picnic Table Redo

So last Monday, when the temperatures were like 45 degrees higher than they were today, we repainted our picnic table.

I got the table probably a few months shy of a year ago on Freecycle. I had posted that I wanted some lawn furniture, and this nice lady told me I could have this! We decided to take it and we didn't use it much last year.
It was in serious need of something. And I finally convinced Clint that some white paint would do the trick! So, since it's one of his days off, we decided to tackle it. One of the chairs was almost in pieces and the table needed some work too. But Clint did the fixin' up that was needed and we were ready to paint it! The weather was perfect!
We used just whatever was the cheapest outdoor paint for wood. We didn't primer it or anything, we just started painting. We did 1 coat on everything, even underneath. And then a 2nd coat on all the surface & "seeable" places. I'm just now getting around to posting about it, so here it is! :)

I love, love, LOVE it! :) It is exactly what it needed!
I hope this inspires some of you! I am so happy that I did it!
