Kasia on the seaside

Hello, Everyone!

I’d like to introduce myself and drop a few lines about the reasons behind this site.

My name is Kasia and I love DIY. Literally to the point, that I’d rather do something myself than pay someone to do it or spend a vast amount of money on something that can be easily (in my opinion ) done.

My family laughs and says that if you want to give Kasia a present and want to make sure she likes it, buy her an electric drill or a jigsaw. Hehe :) They think they’re funny :)

But yes I’m easily pleased :)

So the story is…..

My family and I moved to a different city some time ago. Because of that, I had to quit my current job (which wasn’t very exciting anyway). So with all the spare time (between cooking and cleaning and looking after my then 4-year-old girl) and less money, I started to think about a way to turn a new place into a home for my family.

The idea was to spend the least amount of cash possible, with the materials widely available and tools that I already have.

An hour spent searching the internet and the decision was made…. PALLETS!!!!!!!

There were so many examples of them turned into beautiful pieces of furniture- indoor or outdoor – but not many tutorials, plans, or easy-to-follow steps to make it happen.

That’s why I’ve come up with an idea for this site. To gather all this information in one place so that you can unveil your creative side without hours spending on the internet searching.

Then it evolved into more ideas and DIY/upcycling projects as well as power tool reviews and tutorials.

I’m going to show you step by step all my projects in easy to follow way. I’m going to give you all the tools that you need to make the process painless :) Of course, all the projects will need some physical work, but I assume that you realize that nothing just appears out of thin air :)

If you think you could do some things differently e.g  easier, less complicated way or you’ve got an idea that could contribute to this site please drop me a line or leave a comment. Any feedback highly appreciated. Any ideas very welcome!!!

I’m always updating my site with new ideas and information so make sure you visit regularly :)

And one last thing…..

Have fun with your projects!!!

Thank you for dropping by!

  4. Are you serious??!! However in the world did you come up with that? What a unique niche!! I do a bit of wood work myself so I can really appreciate this. Good work and kudos to you for competing in a male dominated industry. Your site looks great, the old wood on both sides really compliment the theme, looks like you put in quite a bit of work. I have only joined a week ago, see what I have done so far. http://featuregadgets.com/ leave a comment on your favourite post

    • Hi Elliedan,
      the idea was created when I and my family moved to a place with a garden.As I wanted to enjoy my new outdoor space I needed something to sit on, and a table possibly but the money was tight. I just couldn’t spend £500 on garden furniture so I did a bit of research and came up with the idea of upcycling pallets. I’m not really worried about competing in a male industry. I’m kind of used to it.I’ll be graduating in Structural engineering mayor next year :) I’ll have a look at your site. I hope you enjoy your time within community :)
      Thanks for dropping by.
