I have a few projects in my mind to use up a bunch of fence picket scraps I’ve been storing, here’s one of them. The fence picket scraps are 3 1/2″ wide and various lengths. My Harvest Party is this weekend and I wanted something cuter to put some tin foil trays in. I’d seen something similar on Pinterest a long time ago. These are the large bread tins you use at Christmas time for your give-away banana bread.
The long sides and bottoms are 8″ long and the ends are 5″ long. The fence picket scraps were not wide enough for the bottom piece so I had some scrap siding laying around that happened to be the perfect width. I just cut it to 8″. Then I used some wood glue and my finish nailer (well my 10 year borrowed finish nailer, lol – thanks Wayne!).
Not sure if I’ll stain them or just clear coat them but they will be the perfect size for pickles and hot peppers.
My pumpkins are coming along. I probably have about a dozen this year. Pumpkins are truly the easiest and most low maintenance vegetable to grow!
I had several ideas on how I wanted to paint the kids’ picnic table but decided to go with a bright, happy color. This is Behr’s Aqua Fresco. I had Home Depot match it in their Behr Solid Color – Waterproofing Stain & Sealer. Just need to flip it over and finish the underside. I put 2 coats on the table top & benches. Love – such a happy color!
After! My grand vision is coming together!
I’m laughing because as I went to find the link I used for this table, I realized I put the legs on the wrong side of the supports!! LOL Anywho, as I’ve mentioned before, I have a lot of scrap wood in my barn. I also have some 2×4’s that my neighbor gave me because they were starting to warp.
This is where I just realized I messed up. The legs should have been on the other side of those supports. Now I understand why my center support was shorter than it was suppose to be, lol. Well . . . it looks good and should be ok?! right?!
I had pressure treated wood left over I used for the table top & enough of the warped 2×4’s to use for the rest.
Just need to stain or paint it! Here’s the original link – it’s an Ana White project: http://www.ana-white.com/2010/04/plans-bigger-kids-picnic-table.html
I finished the back wall Monday afternoon . . .
just need to cut some more metal and one more lattice piece for this side. So close!
I have a lot of scraps left over from my porch build and since they’re all pressure treated scraps I decided to build a little bench for my porch. I found a super simple DIY bench plan on Pinterest, here it is: http://www.hometalk.com/7428792/build-a-rustic-bench-for-8
I made a few modifications so it’s not exactly by the plans but it turned out pretty good! I painted it with some left over “red barn paint” by Behr.
So cute! Annnndddd thank you to my girlfriend Tammy in Cali who sent me a sweet surprise – a Home Goods gift card!! I picked out that very cool black metal lantern! Thanks Tammy!!!!! I found the pillow and flowers at Hobby Lobby and the ceramic vase was clearance at my grocery store!
