This reclaimed picnic table comes courtesy of the Instructables Green Design contest. Katie Jackson and Lilah Crews-Pless submitted a tutorial for a table and bench set made entirely of scrap wood (minus the table legs, which were purchased new). Besides the simple and sustainable design, the best feature of this table is what's inside it...

... A long trough running the length of the table, which can be used as a planter or filled with ice to keep drinks cold!

A row of succulents would look lovely here, though I'm leaning toward turning it into a mini cooler, what with the weather later enticing me to dine outside.

For the full Instructable on the table, click here. (An Instructable for the benches is coming soon, according to Katie and Lilah.)
