In order for the table lamp to fit into the center, you’ll need a picnic table made from solid wood. Pine is often the most affordable, easy to cut and takes paint well.
Load latex paint into the sprayer, then coat the entire table by holding the sprayer 8 inches from the surface, then moving back and forth in slow, controlled spurts. With the paint sprayer loaded, coat the benches with the same paint used on the table.
In order for the table lamp to look proportionate to the table, it’s likely you’ll need a larger lampshade. To change the lamp shade and ensure it sits at the proper height above the table, remove the existing harp.
Ready-made lampshade harps may not be tall enough to support your new lampshade. In order to ensure it sits at the right height, screw a riser to the top. Risers are often found in 1/2”, 1” and 2” sizes
