Our outdoor furniture solution

We have been blessed with a very large outside covered patio that we love. We love to entertain and it is a great place to have people gather. When we first moved a couple months ago we were on the hunt for some new patio furniture. We wanted a big table in order for a bunch of friends to sit and eat together. We searched high and low and anything that we really liked was really expensive. We finally found a great option, picnic tables. They were inexpensive, a little rustic and included seating {because chairs sure do add up!}.

They started as unfinished picnic tables. We picked them up from Lowes for $89/each.

We wanted a durable finish and decided to use a wood stain. It soaked into the wood and dried nicely. It took two coats to get enough coverage. We used Olympic Maximum wood stain in Wedgewood. 

And here's the finished product at my husband's birthday:
