Two-Tone Adult Picnic Table

I wanted to make a black and brown picnic table, this one turned out really nice and it gets a lot of compliments.


I, also, reinforced the 2x6s used for the seats by boxing in 2x4s underneath.  I just cut 4 53" (probably could have been 54" honestly) and mounted them to the bottom of the seats and screwed them into the seat cross members.  This should keep them from flexing.

Estimated Cost
9 2x6 - 8' - $40,
9 2x4 - 8' - $30,
Screws - $25 (headlok and kreg),
8 cans of paint - $35,
(already had sand paper),

Total $130
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Finish Used
8x valspar project perfect paint + primer Gloss Black (1 coat)
8x valspar color radiance paint + primer Dark Gloss Toast (1 coat)

I will probably also put a clear coat on it to help protect it some
