A MAN says he loves garden furniture sets but can’t afford them – so he DIY’d his own for free to make his patio look perfect.
Gardening whizz Izwe took to TikTok with snaps of the stylish set he made out of free wooden pallets.
He said: “My family wanted to put some garden furniture outside – but I couldn’t believe how expensive it was.
“So I got pallets from work and built it for free. It only took me three afternoons after work.
“All one needs is imagination and a bit of graft.”
Izwe showed how he moved aside the pots and planters in his garden to make way for stacks of pallets.
He then sawed each pallet into planks, adding: “Taking pallets apart is hard work.”
The dad then spent hours screwing the planks together to make a corner bench – sanding to get rid of rough edges.
After he gave it a lick of varnish and grey paint, the bench looked like a top-end furniture set from a shop.
Izwe said: “The only cost was screws £15 and stain £20.”
People on TikTok were wowed by Izwe’s DIY garden furniture set.
Angela said: “You did a great job there – inspirational.”
Another said: “This is better than anything you could buy… awesome.”
Taz said: “Very nice – you just need a few cushions for comfort and to set it all off. Good job.”
It comes after a man who refused to rip down his rotting wooden garden shed revealed how he transformed it into one of the most beautiful in the UK.
