DIY Pallet Wood Hose Holder with Planter

Have you ever seen that incredible shrinking hose on late night television commercials? I’ve got a news flash for you . . . they don’t work. We thought we’d found the answer to our problems and could get rid of our hose holder but alas, it wasn’t to be. So instead of coming up with ways to get rid of our hose holder, we decided instead to build our own. Yes – we embraced the idea of a hose caddy. But we also decided we could make it prettier than a regular hose caddy, and that we could make it out of pallet wood. Which after this table and this art, we had copious amounts of laying around.


Turns out we weren’t the first people to come up with this idea – we found this version and this version online. As any good DIYer does, they make their own version that works for them, and that’s exactly what we did! It’s perfect for holding a hose, and when it’s not in use, it looks so pretty.
As with any project, the supplies and instructions might seem complicated, but they really aren’t. Do a quick read through before you begin.
