With summer in full swing here in Georgia, we’ve been utilizing the hose a lot around our homestead. I got tired of seeing my hose piled in a big knotted mess, so with help from the hubby, I put together this unique hose reel. The only thing we had to purchase to make this fantastic piece of yard art is the spray paint! Woot Woot!
Here’s how to do it:
Remove the tread and tube from the rim of an old tire.There are multiple ways to do this, we cut ours off with a saws all.
Weld the rim to a metal T post. Don’t have a welder? You can JB weld it (you can buy it here , or at walmart). As long as you follow JB weld’s directions it should last a long time. Weld the rim, top and bottom, to the T post. Sand the rim and remove any dust. Clean it well so you will have a good bond with the spray paint. Paint that bad boy. Re-coat if needed. Allow the paint to dry. Stick that puppy in the ground where you want it. TA-DA! Instant improvement!
