My husband is an upcycle extraordinaire. His latest passion is rummaging through construction sites for palettes of wood. Let’s see what he has made recently:
Here are the palettes before he breaks them down.
Check out the work space he has created for himself
Notice the counter. It was a counter top he found in the dumpster on a construction site. The “shelves” are actually drawers that someone was throwing out.
Look closely at the containers. They are all re-used glass jars and coffee tins.
One last look at his ingenuity.
Moving on to the yard. The first think Chuck made were several garden boxes. He’s been reading square foot gardening…
Oh doesn’t that squash look wonderful!
Next he built a compost container that the dogs couldn’t break into.
Finally a picnic table for the kids. I am told that chairs are next.
I saved my favorite for last. This cost us less then $30 start to finish. Someone gave us the aquarium years ago and it just sat in our garage. The filter was also a gift. We had three Guppies and I got four Mollys for $4. We had the gravel from an art project I did a few years back. The only thing that we really paid for was the supporting 2x4s.
So there you have it folks – what to do with a palette in the Manes house.
