DIY Hose and Sprinkler Winter Storage

5 Minutes

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!!
Grabbed a bucket. Only cleaned up a bit.
Drilled about 6 three inch screws through the bottom into a wall in the shed.
Put some metal plumbers tape through the handle and then screwed it to the wall for more stability.
Added my sprinklers and hose ends.
Added my 250 feet if hose. I will be making one more of these. We will see if the hubby notices.

    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
