Simple DIY Patio Table reveal

My handsome husband is a better handyman than I gave him credit for. One Sunday afternoon we were  looking at patio furniture and wishing our tax returns weren't already budgets to go towards our pesky student loans. We loved some of the big solid patio tables, but didn't like the price. The ones we really loved were at least $300, if not more.

Then Adam had an idea. Let's just build a house patio table!  So for about $50 worth of salt treated lumber, and about 2 hours of work on a Sunday afternoon. We did.

Here she is all stained and in her new spot. I didn't even wait for it to dry before I took the pics...as you can probably tell.


We plan to get different chairs of course---but these old chairs I picked up at estate auction a few years back are just fine for the two of us now.
















 And now if we can get rid of this snow AGAIN, we can enjoy it and our view!


 How to, plans, and details coming this week, stayed tuned!
