This picnic table and stools are located on our back deck. It was designed by me and has the advantage of free standing stools. There are eight stools. It is heavy enough that the wind will not tip it with the umbrella up. It is made from treated lumber and is finished with Thompson's water seal. The color is normal sun darkening.
