Diy Garden Cart Made From Hose Spool Cart

Recently the neighbors threw out a metal hose cart to be thrown away. The hubby spied it and asked if we could have it. Now I'm big on curbside rescues, but didnt have the vision that the hubby had when he spotted it. Anyway we had a plastic one and I hated it and never used it. Why do we need another?Then the hubby let me in on his plan for the cart. To turn it into a garden cart for me to use around the yard. I was skeptical about his plan, after all I have a heavy duty garden wagon. But now I'm loving it!
