convertible picnic table

“This is a dual purpose picnic table. Not only is this picnic table great for outdoor eating, but it easily converts into two cute garden benches. The picnic table’s top folds down to create the back of the bench, for a relaxing seat.”


Here’s a project that can serve so many purposes, especially if you have a small yard – or don’t want to tackle two separate projects: it’s a picnic table that can convert into two garden benches. A convertible picnic table! Genius!

Use pressure treated Southern Yellow Pine so your work holds up outside. It can be painted, stained, or sealed however you like (the blue paint in this post from might not be to everyone’s liking).

What do you think? Is it time to grab some boards and make something?
