As a donation to my daughter’s elementary school, I made two adult size picnic tables, so the kids and parents have a place to sit and study. The tables are made using 2×6s that I milled into my final dimension. The kids have a hard time writing on the table top if there’s a 1/8 gap which, so I made the top a solid piece. The color finish is General Finishes milk paint (Coastal Blue) and finished off with General Finishes Outdoor top coat finish (Exterior 450). I love spraying both of these finishes.

Before applying the top coat, I used a custom vinyl sticker for the logo which stands out well in white.
