|The beautiful centerpiece of my yard.|
|Prettiest stain ever - handpicked by me!|
|Seriously, I'm in love with the color of it!|
This summer I've made it a goal to make my yard more than just a yard, I'm trying to make it pretty and party friendly and more of a retreat. So far my efforts are working - I sit outside as much as I can! One thing I knew I needed to do right off is have some seating for when we have our big cookouts and parties throughout the summer. I've always wanted a picnic table but didn't think we could afford one - some go for a couple hundred dollars or more [yikes!]. I bought some turquoise lawn chairs on sale last month but realized we still needed more seating and that I was still drooling over picnic tables I saw. I did some research and I found that you can buy kits at Lowe's and put one together yourself! WOOHOO!
So a few weeks ago a couple friends and I built a picnic table as a surprise for Bear. It was such a fun project to do with friends and it was half the price of most of the picnic tables I had been seeing around. I also have the satisfaction of knowing "I helped build that", every time I see it.
I'm pretty much in love with it. I can't wait for our first big party of the summer to put it to good use.
What's the best addition to your yard, so far this summer?
