Like many things around our house, our picnic table is an antique. Okay, it's really a hand-me-down. But we love it.
The table is in great shape even though it is probably approaching 20 years old. A few years ago we painted it like the Texas flag and really love it in the yard. The benches are a different story. They're sagging and are showing signs of rot.
My recently-retired father offered to replicate the old benches. They came out great!
