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!
Happy Champagne Thursday!
