Hello friends, Happy Tuesday, thanks for stopping by and checking out my newest outdoor project! A DIY Hose Stand!
As you all know I’m apart of the core blogger team for DecoArt. Every month we have a fun challenge to create a project using a DecoArt product. This month our challenge was outdoor, using any of DecoArt’s outdoor paints. We could do anything and the possibilities were endless especially using their Outdoor Living or Patio Paints.
I’ve been wanting to make a DIY Hose Stand for awhile now. It’s been on my to-do list for at least two years. I had all the supplies in the shed already, I just hadn’t attempted it yet. So when our challenge was to do an outdoor project this month, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to give it a try. Especially using their Outdoor Living Paint. I know this isn’t a new project out there on Pinterest, but I wanted to show you could try a project like this using DecoArts Outdoor Living paints.
I’m constantly working in the yard and moving the hose around, and it drives me crazy once I’m done laying in the flower garden. So this will look great, but be practical as well.
DIY HOSE STAND
Step 1 – Gather your Supplies
Like I said before you can look at Pinterest for some great inspiration on a projects like this. I went to Lowes and found these great pieces of wood in the fencing section that I wanted to use and a metal hose holder. I painted everything before I got started. This paint sticks to wood, metal, brick and concrete.
I used Outdoor Living Picket Fence and Poolside. Let each coat dry 20 minutes.
Step 2 – Add your hole in the Ground
I used a 4 foot pole from Lowes, I think it was around $7.00.
Then I pulled out my “trusty” post hole digger and dug a hole about 2 feet into the ground!
After I dug the hole I used some fast drying concrete to cement the pole into the ground. I wanted to skip this step, but hubby was very insistent that we do it. In the end I’m glad I did it.
We followed the directions on the bag, then let the cement dry for about two hours. But I don’t think you need to wait that long.
After the cement was dry we added our metal hose holder that I painted the Poolside and the top part of our stand. The fancy stuff!
Look how pretty that looks!! It’s a very similar color combo as my mailbox I did a couple years ago!
See that’s a lot of hose I have to pull out everyday to water. I’m really glad we cemented that in! I guess sometimes the hubby is right, ;-P
Now I need to pretty color hose to match!! Can I paint my hose to match??!!! ;-P
So what do you think, pretty cool right! I thought it was going to be harder then it actually was, so I’m really glad to finally check this DIY Hose Stand project off my to-do list!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!
