Check this out! It's a pallet deck! We turned shipping pallets into a deck and fence!
Can you believe we used to throw dog poop here?! Before we hung the hammock (that I picked up at BigLots for $12), this was, literally, a dumping ground.
We set pallets on concrete blocks and decked the top with pallets we pulled apart, leaving 1/4" gap between the boards. We used old cabinet hinges to hinge the free-standing fence together.
This is my favorite part of our house. I love laying in the hammock and so does our cat and new pitbull puppies. They think they really little and can fit on a hammock too.
With the addition of a kiddie pool, this deck is a family hangout. Our furry "kiddies" love this deck. The dogs love the pool on hot days. They also love to chase the cat when she runs UNDERNEATH the deck. They entertain themselves while I relax in my hammock. Win win.
*This picture is a year or two old. That's Zues. He passed away last year. He was a sweet guy.
We had these items sitting around our lawn. I wanted to get rid of the broken rabbit until it dawned on me to put the rabbit inside the junk rabbit cage. Duh. Super cute. The cola bin is like a tray on a ottoman. It makes the cage a sturdy place to set items. I love this space and so does my cat :)
The garden has really grown in nicely! I like to use simple, easily dividable plants. My favorites are hostas, lambs ear, daisies, day lilies, and black eyed susan. They grow easily with little to no effort. They are almost like weeds. They take over and cover a lot of space quickly.
Various treasures, such as a rusty motor oil can and a concrete cylinder, add charm, interest, and color. I really like the concrete cylinder because it adds vertical interest. That's an upside down planter sticking out the top! The dollar store candle sits atop a flat rock! Oh, the ambiance!
