I’ve always had a soft spot for vintage style picnic tables.
We had one when I was growing up; it was in our backyard, and I'll never forget it. So many fond memories of family and friends were made at that table.
And yes—in the picture above, that’s me and my sister with our friends hanging out on that very picnic table. ;-)
I bought a mini picnic table for my kids when they were young, and it was well loved.
When we moved overseas to Australia, I packed it away in our 20’ container of stuff so we could take it there - hence the "18,852 frequent flyer miles" (roundtrip) reference. It was something sentimental. It was something I loved. It was something I wanted to keep near.
I brought it back, too, all the way from Australia. I even painted it turquoise.
But over time it gradually fell apart.
I still love seeing these tables in a backyard.
They’re inexpensive, durable, have a timeless style, and speak to that part of American culture that goes perfectly with the 4th of July and its family barbecues, road trips, and outdoor fun. They’re at every campground and every rest stop along the highway. And, of course...
