It seems garden projects have been all the rage during lockdown, with a thrifty mum sharing her stunning outdoor bed this week – built for just £70.

To make the bed, Tanya used old wooden pallets her mother had received at work and had been saving for a DIY project
UK-based Tanya Woolston used old pallets, £70 in wood and material she already had lying around the house to create the private oasis in her mother’s back garden.
The four-poster bed boasts a mattress and pillows covered with waterproof fabric – meaning they can be left outside.
Writing on the group, Tanya explained the base was made from eight wooden pallets that she was given for free by her mother, who runs a manufacturing business.
Tanya shared her results, as well as pictures illustrating how she built the impressive structure on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains Facebook group.
She also already had the lights, grey wood stain, mattress and pillow, as well as the waterproof fabric and 10m of white cotton that forms the canopy.
However she explained similar products could be found on eBay and pallets could be obtained from a local garden centre, business or through Facebook Marketplace.
It meant Tanya just needed to spend £70 on additional fence posts and planks to create the pillars and crossbeams on the design.
