Picnic?...

I REALLY would love to get a cute patio set.
 Like the one Nicole at Making It Lovely has put together in her backyard. 
But reality is, I live 4 hours from Ikea.  And haven't found anything at
any other store that I just loved. =(
So I am really considering getting a picnic table. And I am thinking
of painting it. Here are a few photos that have brought me some
inspiration.

I love that idea and who will probably be able to find a deal given that it's after the 4th. I love the weathered look.

That's a great idea!

Perfect idea--and you could build it with Knock Off Wood's instructions!

Or just take a road trip to IKEA! : )

I lovE this idea!! You can make little cushions for the seat to really change it
up.

Great idea!! Can't wait to see how your backyard area comes together. What color scheme are you thinking?

BC, I am thinking of doing the table a high gloss white! And can't quite nail down what I want to do my accents. I love so many things. Black and white stripes, or navy and pink or light blue! See, my head is spinning. =) Wish me luck.
