Woman creates stunning bar in garden using just 'tatty old pallets' and Wilko lights

WITH record-breaking sunshine this April as we are encouraged to stay home in lockdown, it sure is worth making your garden a place you want to spend time in.

One woman and her husband have been praised for achieving such a feat – by creating a stunning outdoor bar on a budget.

In a post on Facebook group 'Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK', the DIY fan called Helen, showed how she and her other half had put some "tatty old pallets" to good use in their garden.

The social media user shared pictures of the amazing results – a very professional-looking bar painted in pale lilac and grey, and finished off with eye-catching vanity-style lights.

Captioning the images, she wrote: "Seen a few posts in here of people who have made things out of pallets so wanted to share my hubby’s latest creation!

"Wasn’t sure what to think when he bought home some tatty old pallets and said he wanted to make a bar but I love it.

"Paint and lights all from Wilko."

The beautifully-finished project – which is certain to get lots of use in the upcoming sunshine – went down well with fellow group members who left more than 5,500 'likes'.

One person wrote: "Brilliant."

Another commented: "Love it."

A third shared: "Now I know what to do with my leftover pallets, your hubby is a genius."

And a fourth added: "Absolutely great."

It comes as it was revealed that choosing light-coloured plant pots means you'll need to water them less.

Opting for a lighter, neutral colour, which can also include sandy beige and pale grey, means they can better deflect sunlight.

This will reduce heat absorption and mean the plants don't try out as quickly – so that they require less hosing.
