About This Project


For my son's 4th birthday party, we were doing it at our house and needed outdoor seating, so I took on the task of building 3 Toddler picnic tables and 1 smaller one. Building them was not that big of a deal, but painting all 4 took some time! After the party, we sent 1 to my parents, 1 to in-laws & 1 to my bro/sis-in-law, so only ended up with 1 left over.

FYI-the picture on the plan is one of mine, thanks Ana!

Required Skill Level: 
Estimated Time Investment: 
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Finish Used: 
I primed each table, then painted them with 3 coats of paint and sealed them.


I absolutely LOVE the hand prints on the top.  What a wonderful way to remember family and friends.  Fun and playful, like summer should be!!

Thanks for the comments on the hand prints.  This table was an auction item from my son's school.  Each class had to do some art project.  I built the table top first and we took it to his class and had each one do their handprints, then my wife painted their names next to it.  It was a big hit!  Thanks for looking.

I can't find the plans anywhere. Can you show me where to find the plans? Thanks! I love the picnic table.
