There I was thinking that I did not have any projects to share this month when along came another supremely inspiring post by Mrs Snail, (and Mr Snail)
- Farmers always seem to have old pallets lying around and I have a rather grand bug hotel which was installed in March 2012
The top pallets had been cut in half. This is how it looks now
sitting happily under the amalanchier. I’d love to take it apart to see what it houses, but obviously I won’t!
2. Garden Benches
A friend of a friend is helping to run The Bus Shelter, a wonderful project for the Homeless. There is an old double-decker bus which sits in the corner of a car park just outside Weymouth and welcomes homeless people who need shelter or access to services. One of the guys who spends time at the Bus has been making garden benches from old pallets for the shelter to use. Aren’t they brilliant!!!
They advertised one for sale and I said YES PLEASE!!! I also asked if a garden workbench/potting bench could be made and sent a photo I had found on Pinterest
I’m so thrilled with this. I will put some chicken wire round the back three sides underneath and hopefully this will make a great outside potting bench in the garden.
I’m tempted to order another seat and a table – but transport is the issue. Now to work out how to get them to me.
