reclaimed wood table

Submitted by lisaw on Mon, 07/15/2013 - 17:55

We took apart our old rotting picnic table, saved what wood we could salvage, sanded it all down and had enough wood to build this table. We added an extra board for the tabletop to make the slats sit closer together. It was easy to put together and would have taken less than two hours had it not been for all the sanding we had to do. Now we have a sturdy outdoor coffee table for our patio.

Estimated Time Investment
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)

Finish Used
We did not sand all the old finish off completely so we could keep that "reclaimed" look. We then brushed on a teak oil finish that has a hardener in it to protect the table from the elements.
