Easy Outdoor Picnic Table

Ashley and Jamin from The Handmade Home loved creating a simple outdoor picnic table for their family and friends. This is an easy piece that will transition nicely through all the months, no matter where you use it.

Table with V patterned lines in light pastel colors. There are peppers and clementines in bowls on the table. There are also some flowers on the table and pillows on either side.
  • Large wooden board taped off with Green FrogTape Multi-Surface Painter's Tape. There are two open triangular sections still showing off the wood.

    Getting Started

    Ashley and Jamin first created a fun pattern by marking the center point of the table, and pulling tape lines from there. They used a simple leapfrog technique to keep the lines even.

  • Large wooden board with multiple strips of Green FrogTape Multi-Surface Painter's Tape taped onto it. The ends are taped horizontally and the middle is taped in multiple V like strips

    Making Pattern

    Next, they pulled the tape for an every other line kind of pattern, so they would know where to paint. Don't worry about mistakes, they make the pattern more fun.

  • V shaped strips on Green FrogTape Multi-Surface Painter's Tape on a board with pastel colored paint. One strip of tape is being peeled off to reveal a crisp line.


    Then, paint away! Add in fun colors and stunning hues to celebrate eating well. The most rewarding part? Seeing those perfect lines when you pull the rest of the tape away.

  • Table with pastel-colored lines. There is a bowl of bell peppers, a bowl of clementines, flowers, and a few other small items on the table.

    Wrapping Up

    Add the legs, and celebrate! Simply flip the table over, add the hairpin legs and enjoy your new outdoor picnic table.
