About a year ago, Farmer Joe came home from a clearing sale proudly hauling an enormous workbench he had picked up for $50. He thought we could use it as furniture in the house. I said (very politely) no. It has sat in the shed collecting dust and bird droppings ever since.
Then after my outdoor entertaining inspiration post last week, I started thinking about outdoor furniture. Particularly, how much I would love an enormous outdoor table that could hold at least 12 family or friends. Bingo! An old find suddenly becomes a new project.
This thing is seriously huge. It needs to be stripped back and/or sanded (can you tell I have no idea what I'm doing?) and oiled. Then I think she'll be a bit of a stunner. I'm imagining ultra-comfy wicker chairs along both sides - maybe something like this:

I should probably try to focus on the hard work for now...
