…it would have been just the right size for Goldielocks. Last year I took the girls to the Urban Farm in Denver and snapped a pic of a picnic table. I forgot to have size dimensions, so I just took them from one of the girls play tables and chairs. I went to the store with a friend to pick out treated lumber (Home Depot doesn’t sell “green” C2 anymore, just this reddish treated lumber that makes a great faux-cedar look!
Then one evening I cut and drilled all the pieces so all we needed to do was final assembly. Thought I’d teach the oldest girl how to turn wrenches…literally. I got the carriage bolts inserted, and Julia put washers on and screwed each nut on with a socket wrench. Then I finished it up by screwing on the seats and table top slats. Fin!
You can tell Julia is proud and happy to have her own “just the right sized” picnic table. Now I just need to put a coat of watersealer and we’re done.
