The best way to extend the life of your wooden outdoor furniture is by cleaning it regularly, not leaving it outdoors unprotected more than necessary, and re-staining it on a regular basis.
Clean: Use a mild soapy solution. Wipe dry with a clean dry cloth.
Maintenance: To prevent the surface from drying out and cracking, and moisture from penetrating into the wood, we recommend you to re-stain the furniture on a regular basis, for example once or twice a year.
Storing: If possible, store in a cool dry place indoors. If the furniture is stored outside, cover it with a waterproof cover. After a rain or snowfall, wipe off excess water or snow from flat surfaces. Allow air to circulate to avoid condensation.
Recommended for children 3 years and older.
By using only renewable materials in this product (hardware excluded), we avoid using fossil or finite materials.
We want to have a positive impact on the planet. That is why by 2030, we want all materials in our products to be recycled or renewable, and sourced in responsible ways.
Picnic TableSharonThis little picnic table is the perfect size for our 2 year old granddaughter. The wood is beautiful. The only thing that might improve it is applying a couple layers of sealer on it so it lasts longer in the elements.4

So good we got twoMichy103We bought this for our small patio, my kids are 6 and 7 and they fit perfectly. They are a bit tall and lean but they sit comfortably, decided to also buy one for my mothers house so when the kids are over they have a little set up in her huge backyard. Extremely cute and it looks customizable if you wanted to add paint to match your yard decor.5

Never receivedUnhappy GinaPurchased the table April 16, 2020. Got an email. Month later stating that it had been shipped. Tracking info states “labeled made”. But other than that I have not received anything at atoll. Tried calling you guys and I can’t get through. Please fix this/ refund me my money!!1
well built and durablejon wickthis is the fourth table i bought and assembled for my wife's preschool. the children and teachers love it!5
Kid perfect !BBaerThis is a Christmas gift for my grand kids and all my neighbor kids tested it out and loved it, should have bought two! Easy to assemble and it’s very sturdy.5
Warped within 2 months.ikeafrequenterPurchased this picnic table for our toddlers in mid-June. Very easy to assemble and is the perfect size for them! HOWEVER, it sits on our patio which receives direct sunlight for only about 4 hours each day and the occasional rain. By the end of August, the top is completely warped, dipping in about three different areas. Very disappointing.2
Perfect fitPKPx2Keep up the good work!!!!!!!!5
Perfect for your littles on summer daysNatalie17Perfect for our kids to do outdoor crafts or have lunch! We bought an umbrella from ikea too and clamped it to the end of the table for shade. Has held up great!5
Perfect for picnicskittenmomI bought this for my son to use with his friends and it is perfect! It fits 4 kids easily and it is just their size. My son and his friends are ages 2-6.5
I love itfloridamomof2I've had my eyes on this since winter of 2018, but because it was winter time, Ikea wasn't selling it. I live in Florida so it's always summer here, but I digress. I finally found it in store around April and bought it. I do think it is slightly over-priced though. Very easy to assemble and can fit about 4 small children. My son is 5 and can sit here fine, but I don't think this table will be adequate for kids 7+. All in all, I love the table.5
Better than I expected. Perfect for kids 12mon-7yrSammmmmmPerfect for my 12mon old and my oldest who will be 4 this Summer. I’m 5’0 and weigh 105, table height is an inch above knees and i too sit with the kids just fine. Built strong. Took only 15min to put it all together.5
really small!YaniMorI bought 3 for a lunch area in a school and they are very, very small. Only 4 children fit on the benches; there is barely any space to put the food on the tables. The lunch boxes do not fit on the table even to set up for lunch. They are a waste of your money.1
Our take on wood
Wood is the material most commonly associated with IKEA furniture, and for good reasons. It’s renewable, recyclable, durable, ages beautifully and it is an important part of our Scandinavian design heritage. At IKEA, we believe that sourced in responsible way, wood is a key change driver for climate mitigation. In 2012, we set a goal that by 2020 our wood would be from more sustainable sources. We are happy to announce that we have reached this goal and today, more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.
Forests are critical for life on earth
Forests contribute to maintaining balance in the atmosphere, purify the air that we breathe and are part of the water cycle. They nourish wildlife biodiversity and provide homes for indigenous communities who depend on forests for their livelihoods. 90% of plant and animal species living on the planet need forests to survive. They provide sources of food, fuel, timber and many other ecosystem services that we rely upon. Sourcing approximately 19 million m3 of roundwood per year from some 50 countries, IKEA has a significant impact on the world’s forests and the timber industry and a huge responsibility to positively influence how wood is sourced. Responsible wood sourcing and forest management ensure that the needs of people dependent on forests are met, that businesses can work sustainably, that forest ecosystems are protected and biodiversity is enhanced.
100% wood from more sustainable sources
At IKEA, we work with strict industry standards to promote responsible forestry. We don’t allow any wood in our supply chain from forest areas that are illegal or contain high conservation values or from forest areas with social conflict. Before starting to work with IKEA, suppliers must demonstrate that they meet IKEA critical requirements on wood sourcing. IKEA requires all suppliers to source wood from more sustainable sources (FSC-certified or recycled wood). All suppliers are audited regularly and non-compliant suppliers are required to implement immediate corrective actions. By working together with our suppliers, we are proud to announce that we have reached our more sustainable sources goal, which we set out to achieve by 2020. Today more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.
IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030
As pressure on the world’s forests and the surrounding eco-systems increases due to unsustainable agriculture, the expansion of infrastructure and illegal logging, it is time to take an even more holistic approach to protect and support these important resources for generations to come. The IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030 set out to improve forest management, enhance biodiversity, mitigate climate change and support the rights and needs of people who depend on forests across the whole supply chain and drive innovation to use wood in even smarter ways. The agenda focuses on three key areas: • Making responsible forest management the norm across the world. • Halting deforestation and reforesting degraded landscapes. • Driving innovation to use wood in smarter ways by designing all products from the very beginning to be reused, refurbished, remanufactured, and eventually recycled.
We accomplish more by working together
For many years, IKEA has partnered with businesses, governments, social groups and non-governmental organisations to fight forest degradation and deforestation and increase the volume and availability of wood from responsibly managed forests both for our own supply chain and beyond. We are on a journey to improve global forest management and make responsible wood sourcing the industry standard, contributing to building resilient forest landscapes and improve biodiversity.
What is solid wood?
Solid wood is one of our favorite materials and is part of our Scandinavian heritage. It is also a timeless material with many uses. Regardless of the tree species, it is durable, beautiful and renewable. We strive to use this raw material as smartly and efficiently as possible to avoid waste – and we also invest in facilities and logistics so that we can increase the use of recycled wood.
