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.
