Everyone hates that time of year when they have to re-style the garden and buy new garden furniture. But don’t want to spend all the cash? Well check out these great do-it-yourself idea’s for your garden on a friendly budget!
A vertical planter
By upending one pallet and attaching some planks of wood underneath the horizontal struts, you can create a space-saving vertical plant holder that’s a haven for herbs.
A garden bar
Lots of people dream about having a bar outside, and with just five pallets you can make it a reality. To give it a bit more zing you can paint it in any number of tropical tones.
A barbeque buddy
Made exactly the same way as the vertical planter this barbecue buddy is the simplest storage solution for every alfresco chef. By including some hooks, you can easily store your barbecue tools as well.
A snuggle chair
Create a base for your chair by using one or more pallets, then just add another pallet to create a back rest.
Top tip: Finish it off with some cute pallet-sized outdoor seat pads and some scatter cushions for a cosy seat for two.
A substantial sofa
Just combine two snuggle chairs and you’ve got a sofa that’ll comfortably fit four people.
Top tip: make sure all fixings are good and stable to avoid any injuries!
A comfy corner sofa
If you want to create an intimate corner where all your family and friends can relax and unwind, group together three snuggle chairs. You’ll need one extra pallet to fill in the missing back panel.
