I needed to cover up a shameful space in my backyard. And, provide another area for seating. I wanted it to be cheap, easy and fast. This method of building a deck was perfect! The only tool needed was a drill.
I don't know how it happened or when it happened but one day when I looked down at my kitchen sink faucet there was grime and hard water deposits that had accumulated from the past 10
years! One day there was nothing and the next day bam it was there! It was disgusting and I wanted it gone ASAP so I broke out the big guns and with ease was able to remove 10 years of hard water deposits in 15 mintues!

We had some old table legs and we constructed a frame by attaching the pallet boards to the sides of the legs.The pallet boards on the long side of the desk measure 48″ wide and the pallet boards on the short side measure 11″ wide.
It was such a fun project and such a great way to repurpose and upcycle.
I was in love with the look of a rustic cooler for our patio, but was turned off by the high prices. So my husband and I took an old cooler apart and built our own! The base is held by a
2x2 frame, covered in reclaimed fence posts found by the curb. We attached a spigot to the drain hole in the cooler for drainage, used an antler shed for the handle, and added a bottle opener for decoration. It was so easy, and only $30 in supplies (since we had the cooler and fence wood on hand). You can check out the full step-by-step tutorial on my blog ( http://www.killerbdesigns.com/rustic-cooler-... ) to see how to make your own! It's a great addition to our back porch, and was so easy to make.
