DIY Garden Hose Storage
It's the 4th month of our Home Depot Gift Challenge, where several other bloggers and I all take the same item from Home Depot and make a gift for someone specific out of it! This month our item was a 2x4. Let me tell you, there are WAY to many things you can do with a 2x4! But since our gift was supposed to be for a new homeowner, we thought making something to organize a hose would be perfect. Besides,
Not only is this project quick, but it's cheap, too! With the supplies you could actually make 2 of them; which is perfect because a lot of people have multiple hoses!
We started by cutting our 2x4 in half, so it was 4 feet tall. I found these awesome utility hooks at Home Depot for like $2.86 for a pack of two. They were perfect for hanging the hose on!
We attached a hook using the screws given.
Then I spray painted the entire thing with a textured paint to give it some more character.
I also added a smaller 6inch 2x4 on top so I could attach a potted plant. Once everything was dried, we nailed the small 2x4 on top.
Then we screwed on a plastic pot. We dug a hole about a foot deep, stuck the 2x4 in the hole, and covered it well with packed dirt. I was afraid it might topple over with the weight of the hose, but it didn't budge! You could also use a square post instead of a 2x4.
It's the perfect solution to a mess of a hose!
