Happy Sunny Tuesday everyone, it is Tuesday right? 🤷♀️
I thought I'd share with you what I got up to over the weekend. This area, before we made any kind of start on it, was a corner down by my shed and was basically a dumping ground. My youngest daughter made the suggestion of turning it into something! So at the beginning of lockdown we begin to clear it, we then painted the fence.....which was a loooooooong process. We used old leftover paint that we already had.
We had quite a few old bricks behind the shed, so built a BBQ, then the idea came to put down some shingle, frame the area with leftover bricks too! I then found an stone slab and made a seat out of it. Finally we had some old sleepers and again using the bricks made some seating. Now it is rustic and perhaps not to everyone's taste but I love it! It is now a functional space that everyone can use and the only thing we paid for was the shingle! A new space for £35. Bargain!
I'm a big fan of reusing and recycling, I often keep pretty jars from pasta sauces and even gherkins to turn into small flowers jars, I love making something reusable. I'm currently looking at a way to make some home made candles. Watch this space...I've also been inspired by @thisgirlcanorganise and her patio painting, I'm going to give that a go!
Have you made use of anything you had laying around in lockdown? Reused it for another purpose? It's been a great time to look at things we already have and to turn them into something new!
