My second blog post was about redo-ing my patio dining chairs. I had intended to sell them; but loved them so much after the redo that I decided to keep them. And I did. But, the chairs were a bit useless without a table. Now, you know where this is going! I subtly hinted to dear hubby (ok- several times!) that I'd love to have a patio table that would seat 6-8 people.
About a month ago he asked me what I would like for my birthday. I told him I knew of the perfect gift, and it wouldn't cost a dime since we have lots of wood scraps around here. Well, that caught his ear - being a frugal kind of guy who loves to build stuff! I showed him a few different pictures of tables that I liked, and he took it from there.

He did a fabulous job. I just love our new table!
Now comes the fun part - redecorating our patio and tablescaping that beautiful table! Of course I'll share photos of the project as it all comes together.
Oh, dear hubby, what do you think about having a cookout this weekend?!!
