I wanted to make a gift for my friend's kids. I also didn't want to make something they didn't have room for and couldn't really use. The request was a picnic bench for their 3 and 5 year old. I offered to paint it to match the house and they said no, they wanted Notre Dame colors. One of the big box stores has official NCAA colors so it was a perfect match! The wood cost $25 (only 5 2x4 were needed) and the paint, screws, etc. brought the project up to $90. The instructions made it super easy to build and I really took my time making sure everything was square. Also just to build the table is a few hours, maybe not that much. The prep and painting took me a while.
The kids were happy with their table and their Dad, a Notre Dame alum, was thrilled with the design.
I showed this to my husband and he LOOOOOOOVES it. He is about the biggest Notre Dame Football fan there is! Only problem...we are a house divided, with me being a BYU fan, hahaha!
