Project man!

picnic table
MM found this picnic table in an owner’s trash pile here in the park, and he asked if he could have it.  Sure!
One trip to the big box guy store to purchase 5 pressure treated boards, remove the rotten boards (who would use regular lumber???), replace with the new ones.  Ta dah…an almost free table!  And all in under an hour, including visit to the store.

Cost of project:  $30, plus a little sweat equity. 

Smart guy.  Happy guy.  Hello, new neighbors behind him.

Have a peachy, sunshiney day.  It’s beautiful here in paradise, y’all!

First, it's raining here and it's cold. I want some of your paradise. Just saying.

I'm not surprised about MM doing a makeover on that picnic table. It's just what he does. Way cool.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. :)

MM has once again hit the mark, target (from google translate!), great idea, it's right for my son's garden! One-piece pic nic set, very interesting!

I think that MM loves a lot working!

Big hugs!

I suspect that there's nothing like being married to a handy man who can perform magic with other people's cast-offs!

Now you'll have to a picnic or two to make good use of your new table and break it in properly!
