Have you been on the hunt for an outdoor dining set this year? We have had our eye out. Okay, I shouldn’t say “we”. I have.
“We” (haha, I) really wanted a longer table to accommodate lots of dinner guests outside…. but, man, are they expensive.
I guess “we” could have built one.
But when I found this little gem of an X-table with two benches at a garage sale for $10 I got a brain wave. I painted the table and benches white and then also painted our old brown wooden outdoor table as well (you may have seen it in it’s original form on our deck last summer).
Put end to end with the benches along one side, the two tables together make a perfect looooong dining space for our deck.
And instead of using traditional outdoor patio chairs I decided to “make” some custom outdoor dining seating using some old dining chairs I picked up at the Sally Ann and to freshen up some old wicker chairs we had to make great seats for the ends of the table.
