Kids Picnic Table

Submitted by mamalbh on Wed, 06/13/2012 - 13:29

I've been looking at the Bigger Kids Picnic table and wanting to make one for awhile, so when I got some free pallets I went ahead and made it. The measurements were adjusted to work with what I had. We decided not to do the center support because we knew our kids would complain about it being in their way, and the table seems plenty sturdy without (ours isn't as long as the plan)

The only problem is our 1 yr old, who wants to be one of the big kids, likes it a little too much. Even after an hour of sitting there I had to pry her away from it. :-)
