Difficulty: EASY

Before

After

Tools required: Drill, Wood cutter

Shopping list:

  • 2 x Pallets (can be picked up easily for free)
  • Piece of a plywood for a roof
  • Screws
  • Paintbrush
  • Wood paint (if you have. I found a black waterproof rubber paint)

To do list:

  1. Cut the two pallets on the long side. Pallets will normally be made up of five planks. Cut the pallets after the third.
  2. Use the three width cuts for the top and bottom of the structure. Then the remaining two part from the cuts, use as sides.
  3. Build a frame from all four sides and make it sturdy by using a drill and nails. Add an extra plank to each side to make it a nice box.
  4. Add a roof made from a piece of a plywood (make sure there is a slight angleΒ for the water to run off).
  5. Paint the top and sides with a protective waterproof paint.

Tips: Wear a protective gloves as pallets give you splinters.
