DIY Hose and Sprinkler Winter Storage

$3
5 Minutes
Easy

The other day my hubby said we need to get a hose reel or something to store the hoses. Normally they are piled on e the floor of our unfinished basement. After looking at prices it was quite discouraging. Later that day I walked by one of the many 5 gallon buckets and it hit me. Hose and sprinkler storage!!

Put some metal plumbers tape through the handle and then screwed it to the wall for more stability.

    I am doing this asap.. LOL I wanted to do something with the old paint buckets that is an eye sore every sense I moved in to my little rental property. It will be a better way to use them instead of the land fill
