Two days ago, Dave of the The Home Garden blog, offered up a $100 Home Depot Gift Card if you commented on his blog and possibly wrote a post about a project you would build or create in a weekend with a spare $100 bucks. I decided I would build a picnic table to be placed near my new Intimidating Row Garden so that I could ponder (in the shade) how much still needed to be weeded. Or better yet, how little weeding still needed to be done. I like that version more.
Actually, this is the one I really liked. Built-in shade just in case I had to weed at the wrong time of the day! There is a little more lumber involved with this one but I should have some scrap left over from the chicken house project. Isn't this a fun plan? The plans for this can be found here. I think this could be done in a weekend or less and stained or painted on another.
So thank you, Dave. I enjoyed researching picnic benches and have now added another item to my "To-Do" list. But it should provide much enjoyment over many years so I deem it completely worthwhile.
