It's WISE to DIY: Thrify Ideas for the Do-It-Yourselfer

When He Flips This Over And Adds PVC Pipe, I’m SOLD!

He had 2 pallets, pvc pipe, spray paint, some extra wood and castors.

Here is how he did it:

1.  First, he sanded the pallets down to ensure no splinters.

2.  Then he bolted the two pallets together, added legs and castors.


3.  He measured out and added a border around the outside of the bench.  Then, stained the bench.

4.  He constructed a 3-sided railing using PVC pipes, spray painted it a cool color and affixed to the bench.


5. Once the railing was on, all there was left to do was blow up an air mattress, cover it with a fitted sheet and add pillows!

    Now at each end where the 4 inches or better of wood that is hanging past the ends of the mattress he/she needs to cut a couple circular holes for cup holders .

  2. Oh yes,, Click through,, never show the project without loading your pc, or phone, with all of your “double Click” mal-ware. This is why most just scroll by this ad -fueled bull$#%&[email protected]* Have you looked at your history, after “clicking through this mal-ware? Wonder why your pc/phone is so slow? It’s loaded with this “tracking bull-crap”.
