We picked up this kids picnic table at a garage sale for $5. It was pretty worn, dirty and needed some TLC. With a little wash and some outdoor plastic spray paint this piece will last much longer and won’t be an eye sore in my backyard. My one piece of advice is to paint when your children will not be around during the drying process. Even though I said “please don’t go near those, they are drying.” One of my boys ran across the table top and another drove his hot wheels across it. This all happened in a matter of about 2 minutes. We live an we learn. I took it all apart before I cleaned and painted and it was a fairly easy and quick task, if you don’t count the touch up I had to do after my boys destruction.
