Preschool Picnic Table

Thanks to LoriInVegas for her help with the legs on this project!  My legs were so wobbly, even thought I was super careful to cut them evenly.  So, I unscrewed all the screws besides one, in each leg, and then re-screwed everything in one by one, being sure it was steady after each screw.  I built this for my 3 year old and 1 year old daughters.  The table was a bit smaller than I had imagined, but it's sooooo cute!  It will fit them both for now, but definitely no more than one child on each side, and I assume my 3 year old won't be able to fit comfortably much longer.  I plan to build the Bigger Kids Picnic Table this weekend!  I painted the entire table in chalkboard paint so that the kids could go crazy decorating it.  I plan on putting a cute little basket in the middle of the table to hold their chalks.
