Using some standard porch swing plans, I altered them to reflect the shape of one of my favorite swings. So far, it's hanging in there..har-har...

The easiest way to disassemble the pallets is with a sawzall. Use a wrecking blade and you can
cut through the nails.Place the blade between the 2X4s and the slat wood and you will have it apart in a few minutes. The rusted heads that remain in the boards add a rustic touch. Nice swing by the way.
How often do you notice the ground that you're walking on? Not often? That's because you haven't been on these beautiful repurposed garden paths! Get inspired to create your own little path of happiness at home.
We updated our living room recently, using 100% recycled materials.
The wall hanging is made of NZ native tawa tongue and groove reclaimed from an old villa.
The LOVE wall hanging and coffee table were made from salvaged tongue and groove flooring. The base for the coffee table is made of two storage crates made of pallet wood. The TV unit was purchased second hand for $1, and stripped of it's originating mdf and replaced with native tawa to match the wall hanging, and finally, completing the room is the charcoal rug, a large off cut of carpet that was recycled from an office fit out. The whole room cost us nothing but time to complete. We love the look which is very child friendly, and adds quite a masculine vibe to the house, keeping the man of the house happy too.
