Hip hack hooray!
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.
