Found a great free summer shade for my cube

Recommended Posts

Helping Hubby to go through our storage locker I found an old tent that had a flat groundsheet. It was a useless tent as water ran down the sides and pooled in the groundsheet so I know the groundsheet is waterproof.  It is also grey, breathable, heavy tarp and has elasticated hooks sewn at intervals along the edges.  It measures 10x 5ft so should make a good shade even when the run is extended again. 

Just cutting the bases out of the old sleep pods to customise into curtains for the sides when it rains heavily.   Might try sewing poles into the folds to act weights and make it easy to roll them up out of the way.  Might not work but I’ll still have the shade.  Love a bargain 😊

Brilliant!  I know we’ve got at least one old tent in the loft.   I need to have a look.....
