We set out to clean up the pergola area and utilise the space under the kitchen window. It was previously where we kept the rubbish bin, bags of potting mix and gardening tools.
We had a spare piece of marble and decided to make our own D.I.Y. version of a servery/serving bench. We didn't want to splash out on a new gas strut window, so we worked with what was already there. We removed the flyscreen on the existing kitchen window so that when the window is open, food/drinks etc. can be passed through or placed on the servery top.
Spacing out the brackets, using timber wedges against the brick ledge and checking that all the brackets are level.
Painting the timber wedges.
It was good to finally use the marble in a D.I.Y. project. The project only took a couple of hours to complete, and I can imagine you could also recreate the same D.I.Y. servery with a timber benchtop.
