We had a plastic hose reel in our last house.
It. Was. Horrible.
We cursed that silly thing so much. It was always tipping over and kinking the hose and driving us bonkers.
So, we ditched it when we sold the last house and created something way simpler at the barn.
I have actually used this vintage wash basin as a pot for plants in the past. I got it at a garage sale for $5. But this year, Ryan mounted it right to the side of the barn for our hose.
It has the perfect rustic look for our red barn. And it’s also really practical. It’s simple to roll up the hose for storage. It looks nice.
