Let’s roll it – DIY Garden Counter Bar
There are some pretty basic steps that you need to follow to make your very own fabulous looking garden bar.
Collect all of your discarded pallets (should be in intact form) and polish, for the main counter table you’ll need 4 large pallets. Paint them with your favorite color (I used royal blue color).
Once you are done with painting all the pallets, its time let them try for at least 3-4 hours under the sun.
Once the pallets are completely dry it’s time to polish them with varnish, this will keep the paint in shape and won’t let it scrap off of the pallets.
Now take your rook joists and varnish them as well, let them aside for 3-4 hours until fully dry.
Now you have all the dried out pallets and rook joists. It’s time to join them altogether in a form of a counter. Use the nails to join pallets and roof joists. Be careful with the hammer.
It’s your time to show off your efforts and let your friends and family see what an amazing talent you got! Show them your DIY creativity in form of DIY Garden Counter Bar now!
Hey guys, I have some great news for you. I have been working on something really exciting, guess what? It’s a…
Well, let’s cut the suspense, it’s a pretty cool and new way to make use of your old and unused shirts into a creative and trendy look. You can apply this Tie Dye DIY method on a lot of things e.g. from socks to old n torn out bed sheets. However, in this article, I will specifically talk about DIY Tie Dye Shirt. Let’s get started!
Things you need to Tie Dye a Shirt
White T-shirt (it can be an old one or you can apply this DIY Tie Dye on a new shirt)
Dye colors (bright colors works well, you can easily get your hands on a reasonable set of dye colors)
Squeeze plastic bottles for storing liquefied dyes
Ziplock Plastic Bags
A plastic tub (preferably an old one)
Mixing cup and a spoon
DIY Tie Dye Method
Once you have all the material and equipment at hand, it’s time to get started. First of all, in the plastic tub add warm water along with soda ash (not too much). This will help the dyes to sustain its colors when applying on the shirt. It is really important to ensure that the mixture is well-dissolved. Now soak in your shirt in that mixture (make sure to wear rubber gloves when soaking it, it gets messy at times). Once fully soaked, wring the shirt out of it and twist it to squeeze out the dye as much as you can. You can use any pattern to dye your shirt, but I used the rainbow pattern.
For that, place the shirt onto the table put a dowel rod or your finger to spin the shirt around it as much as you can. Once completely swirled tie it with rubber bands, make sure that the rubber bands are strong enough to hold onto the shirt for long. Join the rubber bands all over the shirt and try to keep the whole thing as straight and flat as you can.
Now, it time for dyeing, put any dye you want to on the shirt. P.S. Make sure that your dye doesn’t spill on your work surface. Let it dry for a day and uncut the rubber bands and tadaa here you go with an amazingly looking trendy DIY Tie Dye art.
