A shelf for plants.

The look of concentration!

A couple of weeks ago when we had a week of glorious weather I set the Mr a challenge. I'd been scrolling through Instagram and I saw a photograph of a plant shelf. I showed the Mr a photograph and asked if he could make it. I was expecting a no! But he was really up for it and a few days later he went off to B&Q bought himself a drill and nails (maybe screws, I don't know, something "drilly") and set to work. I took a few "before" pictures and then headed off to work.

 Not being able to supervise I was wondering what I was going to come home too. But I have to say I was really impressed. The shelf looked great and I can't wait until the summer when my seeds have bloomed into beautiful flowers.

I'm expecting lots of things made from scratch now. I wonder if he knows?  Have you ever made anything like this? Or forced your other half too. Haha!
