Spring will eventually arrive in Alberta and when it does were going to be busy building a fence for our dog, but I need a gorgeous DIY outdoor table for the deck. We downsized our previous outdoor set to Hubs son, and you can’t enjoy the outdoors without furniture, so somehow a gorgeous table has to happen as well.
For now I am oohing and aahing over some gorgeous plans I found on Pinterest.

DIY Picnic Tables for Children
Much too long ago my boys had a child’s picnic table given to them. They used it for years and it was nothing short of fantastic for playtime, and it was small so it could be used indoor as well.
