Garden Hose Holder

I got another project crossed off my to-do list this week, a garden hose holder.  Last week I got my inspiration from the ladies at Shanty2Chic for my fun wine rack and they have inspired me again this week!  I made a super easy garden hose holder for our backyard.  We are s-l-o-w-l-y updating our backyard and this garden hose holder helps clean things up a little.  


I got both items I needed for this project at our local Home ReSource store.  I love wandering around that place, there are so many things to look through.  I had actually bought the post there a while ago for another project I was going to do and never got around to, it was only $2.  Score!  I bought the metal hose holder there last weekend for $2 as well.  Double score!  I've seen similar hose holders for around $10, so $2 was a great deal.  I had everything else I needed for the project, so I only ended up spending $4 for this project.  


The post was previously used, so it needed a little sanding to smooth the sides out. 


After sanding, I screwed the hose holder onto the post with a couple screws.  Then I primed the post with some outdoor primer and some Rust-Oleum metal primer on the hose holder.  Next I used a few light coats of Canyon Black Rust-Oleum spray paint on the whole thing.  I chose black because our outdoor light fixtures, tiki torches and a couple planters are all black, so I'm hoping to this helps tie it together.  


Next, I dug a hole about a foot deep and installed the post.  Finally, I got the hose off the ground and wrapped the hose around holder.  Finished!  I love projects than I can get done in a couple of days!  



Cheers!

Happy Champagne Thursday!

  4. Numerous are just aluminium or some metal with a layer of brass on the outside. Others are lightweight... which by definition means that they are not as long-lasting. best hose nozzle

  5. Do not assume the person with the most education is the most capable, or the most reliable. Ask for recommendations from previous clients. If they work for a firm, do a search on the internet or ask to speak with previous clients and to see previous projects. Landscaping Wylie TX

  6. During the communist times these beautiful buildings were left to decay, the residents paid very little rent to the communist government and repairs were carried out by people who just did not care about the architectural splendour within these magnificent buildings. Needless to say they became quite dilapidated until the 1990's when communism was no-more. budapest Student accommodation
