Q: I was hoping your readers could help me. I know my daughter would love a sand/water table this summer in the backyard, but all the ones I've seen are bright plastic and not very attractive. Can anyone direct me to a more stylish option I can purchase (maybe something in wood or metal)? or instructions on a DIY option?

Editor: We've seen plenty of wood sensory tables, but whether they can withstand being outdoors for the summer we're not sure. Readers, can you help Summer out?
