Somewhere To Rest My Tea

When we'd laid out the stones and put in the pallet planters we sat down to enjoy a cup of tea. We quickly noticed that there was something missing, somewhere to rest our mugs. So Dan set about making a table from the leftover pallet pieces. 

I tried to avoid going out in the rain!

He's not generally a maker of things, other than bread, so this was something a bit different, and I think he's done a grand job. 


There's a little bit of glue seepage, but we can deal with that. It's ideal for our needs at the minute, especially as our main need is for things to be low/ no cost!


Now all we need is for the sun to make a comeback so we can get out there and enjoy it.

  2. Well done to him, brilliant idea. My OH made a picket fence all around our back garden from a load of pallets he was given. Took him ages to take all the pallets apart and make the fence, then he and my sis painted it, and it looks wonderful. It's amazing what you can do with pallets, those planters are a really good idea too.

    1. Thank you. If in doubt, stick it! Our remaining nails weren't very long so we thought a bit of glue would help things along - can't be too careful!

  8. Cute table. It's always so satisfying when something costs absolutely nothing to make but solves a problem you have and serves a purpose.

    1. Thank you Carol, we were thinking that if the edging and table last a few years we'll have some cash for a "proper" makeover. I'm just enjoying it at the moment.
