DIY projects to cel­e­brate the sea­son

old hard­wood fence pal­ings may look like they’re only good for fire­wood, but un­der the rough ex­te­rior is beau­ti­ful tim­ber that’s just wait­ing to shine. The best bit is, you can usu­ally find them for free! Search on­line trad­ing sites or check with a lo­cal fencer and you’re away! 1 Noth­ing says sum­mer like a bowl of cit­rus and pineap­ples! Com­plete the re­laxed feel with white table­ware and chairs. 2 You don’t get char­ac­ter like this with new tim­ber! Keep­ing the shape of the old fence pal­ings gives a hint of their for­mer life. 3 Chunky tim­ber legs and ex­posed gal­vanised fix­ings com­ple­ment the re­cy­cled pal­ings of the table­top and add an in­dus­trial edge to your out­door space.
