$4 chairs + Clara's table

Submitted by solomonson on Mon, 07/09/2012 - 19:33

My little boy needed a table to sit at. The adults needed a “kids table” for when we have dinner guests. This served both functions. I had enough scrap for two chairs and spent a few bucks of the lumber for the table, some Valspar primer and spray paint, and there it was.

The only modification I made to the chairs was that I used pocket holes to fasten the back aprons to the side aprons for added strength instead of using wood screws through the end grain. I was barely able to squeeze my drill in the square but did it by severely contorting my wrist and hand.

I used Valspar primer and spray paint - can't remember the name of the color but it's easy to find according to the lid.
