What do you do if you’ve no dining table – yeh I know eat off your knee! Well I do that anyway, but I wanted a dining table for an extra space to make stuff on and of course dining on from time to time.
Funds limited as they are and nothing fitted the bill on ebay, I waited for a skip solution. A month or so ago I spied an old decking being ripped up and all the timber thrown in the skip. Voila the ingredients for a new table I thought, after asking permission to remove the green, wet, muddy and often rotten timber joists I drove off with the rear of my car filled with 7ft lengths of timber.
A month or so later, after letting the timbers dry out, I built myself a table, found 4 matching chairs in a charity shop for £8 and hey presto the whole lot cost less than £20.
It’s approx 7ft long and 3ft wide and about 2″ deep – it’s heavy and will see me out lol.
