I’m a DIY whizz & I made a swanky bin storage using scraps & cheap Wilko buys but everyone is saying the same thing | The Sun

A DIY fan has revealed that she made a swanky bin storage on a budget, using scraps and cheap buys from the high street.

The garden enthusiast and DIY fan explained that she used leftover wooden pallets and cheap buys from Wilko to give her bin space a stylish look. 

Jenny, who posts on TikTok under the username @jenshomejournal took to the video sharing platform to proudly show off the process of creating her bin storage. 

She said: “Firstly I pulled the back off one of the pallets, then cut the other two to remove the sides and back as well.

“I wanted to keep the front structure as much as possible, then continued on to sanding everything down.

“Using wood screws and corner braces, I then attached the front to the side of the shed, this allowed me to attach the next bit of wood to the side of the shed, which would act as a support structure for the top.

“The top was the two pallets that I cut down earlier, which meant they were already secured through the middle.

“After screwing the top into the back, it was time to measure up and cut off the excess wood.

“Finally, I attached a small piece of wood underneath and the last leg, to support the front of the structure.

“Then I painted it in Costal Cliff by Wilko and here’s the result.”
