Pallets... they rock... they are so useful and a lot of times they are just thrown away... so what better way that to recycle( cause you know I am a BIG recycler)
so since we have a pool in our house here in our new town.. I needed a porch swing, to sit and watch my kiddos swim, right.. so I made one
So I really had no idea what I was doing... I looked at countless pictures on pinterest and on you tube, and still had a hard time, so I just figured it out. I cut a pallet not in half, but like one piece was 1/3 and one was 2/3, the 2/3 being in the back and the 1/3 for the seat part. I braced it with lots of pieces of wood and went to the hardware store and got big sturdy bolts and put them on everywhere so we wouldn't fall when we sat in it. Then I got some big chains and eye bolts, sanded and painted it and hung it to the beam out by the pool.
So that is one outdoor project... and here is another one... I really wanted a patio table, but the one I wanted was $1500.. not sure why my hunny wouldn't buy it for me.. haha... so I built one... its a little rickety( I need to brace it a little more) and I still need to paint it(not sure if I should) and I should sand it a little more(the kids say they get splinters in there forearms when they eat at it). But I really wanted to get this project done and I do cut corners... one of my faults...
and the last project that was a easy one.. the pallet garden
So I did not make all of these in one day, it was several weeks and I got all the pallets from when my husband opened his new office, he had to buy a lot of cubicles and they came on the pallets... so I scored there... so go out there and find some pallets and make something fun!!!!!
