Looking for somewhere to sit and watch the world go by whil in lockdown?
Well one mum has managed to create an amazing window seat for just £30 using a pallet and a cot mattress.
Courtney Gallears, 27, from Tamworth, Staffordshire, spent just £29 on the whole project.
The hairdresser shared the results on the DIY On A Budget Facebook page.
She started by cutting the wood into small strips, before securing them in front of the wall and creating a platform ridge around the edge of the wall.
She then added more wood on top as a lid, which can be lifted off so the seat can be used as storage.
For the padding on top, she used a cot mattress and added some cushions.
She painted the whole thing cream to complete the look.
Courtney said: ‘The window seat is complete! This cost me £30 for a cot mattress and the paint!’
People loved the idea and praised the finished look. The post had over 19,000 likes.
One person said: ‘I’d love a window seat perfect for a book nook.’
Another added: ‘That’s really clever !! Well done, looks fab.’
‘I’d love this in my house,’ someone else said.
She’s not the only one who has completed a thrifty DIY project in lockdown.
One woman transformed her garden path with a £29 stencil, while a couple transformed their messy cupboard into a dream laundry room.
Pallet transformations are particularly popular – one mum created a mud kitchen for £10 and a couple made an outdoor sofa and playhouse for just £45 using the leftover wood.
