SPENDING so much time at home has inspired many of us to try our hand at some DIY, decorating and up-cycling.
But very few of us do it as successfully as this savvy couple.
Marie Phillips and her husband decided to make use of an old unwanted bed frame and turned it into a stunning garden bench.
Shortening the frame to make it into a seat and using the bed slats to sit on, the bed transformed into a stunning garden seat – as good as any you could buy in the shops.
As a finishing touch, the couple painted over the wood in a bright white colour.
People were so impressed by the transformation that the original Facebook post, uploaded to Mrs Hinch cleaning tips and tricks group has had more than 8.5k likes.
People were quick to praise the clever design. One person said: “Great idea looks fab.”
While another agreed: “What a brilliant idea.”
Responding to all the positive feedback she received on the bench, Marie explained why they had decided to undertake the DIY project.
She said: “Thank you for all your comments. I was made redundant during lockdown, and whilst tidying out my garage saw this bed taking up room.
“I had no idea how to get rid of it without it costing me so decided to turn it into something else.
“Garden benches are beautiful when adorned with cushions and throws.”
