Fotor0908120615 copy copySummer means BBQ’s and family gatherings in the backyard.  With Olivia’s cousins coming to visit this coming weekend, a DIY projects were in order.  IMG_1176-001 copyI found this picnic table on the side of the road about to be picked up by a dump truck.  One persons trash is another persons treasures, right?  IMG_1196-1Jamie had a wonderful, little supervisor as he took the table apart.  It was easier to take the table apart in order to spray paint using two different colors.  Screws and bolts held each piece together so a screwdriver or drill will help.Fotor0908115953 copyJamie picked out two “coastal” Valspar for indoor/outdoor plastic spray paint and primer colors.  It took two good coats to really cover it and then one final coat of Rustoleum clear glossy finish spray to protect it.  IMG_1344 copyI think it turned out super cute!Fotor0908120347 copyAnd the most important person loves it too!
