fixin' for a picnic

A couple of weeks ago we went outback to the communal outdoor area of our apartment building and saw that our picnic table was broken.  Remember the picnic table The Man and I built over 2 years ago! I can't believe it's been that long, but I can believe that one of the beams snapped.

With the summer in full force and Independence Day on the way we decided it was time to fix the sad broken table. So we got some new 2X4s at Home Depot and went to work.
So here she was in all her newness all those years ago:

And what a difference 2 years make:
Look at what 2 Chicago winters can do to cedar. Beautiful!!  You can definitely tell which pieces are new.

I love having a productive weekend, breaking out the power tools really makes you feel accomplished!
