Got a tree in your yard? Then you'll love this DIY bench around a tree project!

It will provide shaded seating for you and your loved ones, aside from improving the look of your backyard. You can build one with a backrest for added comfort.

It's easy to build that you can even finish it in one day, given the proper tools and an extra hand from friends :)

Find inspiration from our gallery of bench designs on our site.

It would seem odd to think of a 14m x 7m concrete box set deep in the ground as a ‘house of the sky’ and yet it is!

We all know that an average toilet uses excessive amounts of clean water per flush. And that makes up a large part of every household's water consumption! Wouldn't it be nice if we could maximise the use of this clean water before they are flushed down the bowl?

A toilet tank sink makes that possible!

Here's another easy project to bring more colour and life to your home! All you have to do is build it in one day, wait around five months and you'll have an eye-catching feature in your yard!

It's a really easy pallet project that anybody can build. You don't even have to worry about making the planter look very pretty. When your flowers have fully grown, the entire flower box would be unseen and all you will see is a seemingly explosion of colours. ;)

Is this going to be your next weekend project?
