My Sweet Savannah: ~thrifty Thursday~{diy basketball hoop} 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. Perfect. 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! xoxo
