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

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

This outdoor pallet daybed is amazing, guys!

I love a pallet project that is so easy–and what I mean by that is NO DISSEMBLING!

This is a great piece to have outside in the backyard to rest, read or just fall asleep.  I mean, why hang a simple hammock when you can make this in no time at all?

    Oh Daddy D Donovan Dale I think Dory and Mama want one of these.

  2. Would like one of these on the deck next year please.

  3. I think I am going to start blocking any posts in the “You won’t believe…” format. They never live up to the hype and I’m tired of being led-on.

  4. Thomas Venne says:

    Why the casters? I see this rolling off the deck very easily.

  5. I think it’s a great idea; HOWEVER, it’s sitting so close to the end of the deck that if any child ran to jump on the ‘daybed,’ it would go flying off the end of the deck. (There were no ‘brakes’ of any kind on the casters.) Cute idea, though!

    • Robert Schultz says:

      Well, if you would bother to look, the mulch is deck height so the casters will just sink. Maybe he doesn’t have kids or grandkids. So, when you buy/build one, you can do with it AS YOU PLEASE.

    • Richard Tompkins says:

      You can buy locking castors if you want to be able to roll it around. Myaelf? I would just leave it without wheels and pick it up to move. Can’t weigh that much.

  6. Mark Fenske….do you still have pallets at your house?

  7. I must have missed something, just saw another picture but no explanation. Kind of a waste of time

  21. Another project for you Jordan Multaner.
