My home: garden updates with Ryobi One+ System

What does your outdoor space look like? We have a small but cosy backyard, which after a little work has become our very own outdoor oasis. It still requires a little TLC here and there - for example last weekend we sanded down the table and made a new plant box out of an old discarded palette (link to tutorial below!). It's amazing what you can do with an old palette and Ryobi tools! For those of you not familiar with the company, Ryobi specialises in cordless tools, specifically the ONE+ System with which you can power over 50 tools with the same battery, which is super convenient (and they're sooo easy to use). The day turned out to be really therepeutic (who would have thought DIY could be so mindful?!) - and most importantly had so much fun! Oh and now we have a beautiful table and plant box too! Hope you like it! #feelingempowered.

You can see a great tutorial on how to make a similar plant box here

For now we've loaded the box with pretty heather (I love the autumn colours) but come spring, we'll be starting the new vegetable patch (inspired by the The Rurbanite)- wish us luck!

A quick guide to where other things are from: the garden table, chairs and candle holder are from ILVAplates and cutlery from Nordal, blanket from The Beach House.

Have a lovely day!

This post was sponsored by Ryobi. However, all words are my own and I only ever work with brands I love and trust and feel you will to. Thank you for supporting the sponsors who help me to create fresh and exciting content here on My Scandinavian Home!....And thank you Ryobi for my amazing new power tools!


  1. I have a few pallets lying around. Thanks for the inspiration! Amanda

  2. Oooo, you could make an entire series of them! So pleased with mine. Let's hope my vegetable patch will be as good!

  3. I love Ryobi! I have a fairly small cordless Ryobi screwdriver and I put my entire Ikea kitchen together with it. It's small but it performs really well and it holds charge for like forever (ok, not forever but a really long time). I also had a chance to use a couple of other Ryobi tools (I have an awesome neighbour that has amazingly well equipped workshop and I was satisfied with them. I need a new jigsaw and I know it will be a Ryobi as well.

    Lovely garden, Niki!

    1. I know excactly what you mean - the battery is amazing! Loving my jigsaw, you must get one! :) x
