Using a Picnic Table Inside & Out

The picnic table takes many of us back to remembering the joy of childhood. Most of us probably sat at picnic-style tables to eat lunch each day in our school’s cafeteria. Still, as we grow older, picnic tables remain a sign of celebration and innocence.

Now, I find myself sitting on picnic tables at events like my friend’s baby shower hosted outside at the local park’s pavilion. But, in many cases, picnic tables are not the dining set of choice for outdoor and indoor living – instead, we usually see a table with chairs. I’m here to show you how you can incorporate this traditional furniture inside and outside in new ways:

Traditional with a Twist
Having a picnic table outside allows you to entertain guests all season long. We’ve all seen traditional picnic tables: one long table and two attached benches. Invigorate this look by adding two backed benches with two backless benches like’s Treated Pine Wide Picnic Table.

Move The Party Indoors…
Whoever said leaving your picnic table outside is the status quo has it all wrong! This family has it all right:
