Did you catch this episode of Magnolia Farms?
There was this DIY basketball hoop that I fell in love with.
So I found some free pallets on the side of the road, loaded them up and brought them home.
They were a paint to get all the wood off in tact, but I managed to salvage enough wood from 2 pallets.
With that wood I made this frame:
Then I "filled in" the frame with the pallet boards cut to length.
Next came the task of finding an old hoop.
I went to about 100 different thrift shops looking, and nothing.
I searched craigslist and ebay but they were really expensive.
So, while talking out loud to myself one day about it,
my son says,
"oh, I just found one of those in the woods!"
He then hauls in this basketball hoop.
Voila, sometimes things just fall into place.
I had found the net at a thrift shop while I was out looking for the hoop.
Naturally, I hung it in his room so he can play hoops from bed.
His reward for all his help :)
I just love it when projects turn out as planned!
