Recycled pallet and crate timber decks

Deck.pngHello everyone. It has been quite some time since I last submitted a project to these Bunnings DIY boards. I have been very busy over the last six months, though, working on not just one but three decking projects for around my home. A lot of work, much blood, and many tears have gone into each of these projects and so I thought would share my work with all you other DIY inclined people. If I can manage these results then anyone can, I hope this might inspire others to perhaps give it a try. All wooden decking boards, and noggens, featured within these photos are reclaimed treated pallet/crate wood that have been cleaned up (via being sanded and thicknessed) and then stained to match other wooden features around the house. However the wooden joists are simply treated timber from Bunnings that were perfect structural foundations for the decking that followed.

 

A special thank you to bunnings moderator Jason who sent us a little bunnings gift box shortly after my son was born. Inside it was a little bunnings t-shirt, a hat, and a bunnings teddy bear. Now two, the t-shirt and cap are a good fit and our little man is happy to show them off to the world. He will definitely be a bunnings customer for many years to come I think.
