Kid's Picnic Table

I've been loving all of Ana White's creations for some time now, but we finally made one.  The "bigger kids picnic table"

My husband cut and sanded all 17 pieces and then I spent Friday and Saturday morning painting them all.  We have been working on our back yard and finally have some of the patio done, so we can enjoy the nice weather we've been having here the last couple weeks.

This project was time consuming, but totally worth it.  There is a younger children's version on her blog as well, but that was made out of 1x boards...which are more expensive than 2x boards and less sturdy.  And we had a ton of 2x4's already lying around.  So all we had to buy were the 2x6's for the table top.  So this size worked well for my 2 and 4 year olds...and I can sit at it comfortably as well.  But it helps that I'm only 4'11".


  1. I love it! I just recently made the smaller one for my kids as a first time DIY project...
