The final part of our tropical oasis was to create a place for our family to gather outside. Our kids absolutely love eating dinner in the backyard, but until now, we didn’t have a way to do it. We would try to enjoy meals outdoors by letting the kids eat on their nautical picnic table while the adults balanced plates on their laps. It just didn’t work. But not anymore…
Now we have a beautiful place to have family meals outside! Our patio has been transformed into a beautiful dining space and at the center of it is this giant outdoor dining table. It’s the perfect place for the whole family to gather (with room for plenty more). We even got the chance to enjoy some time outside this last weekend, including playing some card games. The patio is my new favorite place for family game night!
The table top was purchased from a local furniture store as a scratch & dent (just like the table top for our outdoor kitchen island). I didn’t realize just how big it was until I finally pulled it out of storage to add the legs. This table top is 96″ x 38″. So I built large, extra deep benches to go on either side. Now we can easily fit our family plus more and enjoy the new pergola.
The entire space is just coming together so great! I cannot wait to share the reveal with you in just a couple days. But for now, click the arrow below for the outdoor dining table plans (including these fantastic dining benches).
