Today's Thrifty Treasure

Okay so it's Thursday & Not Monday BUT I just started my blog yesterday and found out about Southern Hospitality's weekly challenges today. So here is my Thrifty Treasure. It's a garden hose holder. Someone in the neighbourhood recently moved and left behind some stuff they didn't want to take with them. I liked the design of the holder and scooped it up. Since we are not in need of a hose holder, my challenge is to come up with another use for it. If you've dropped by my blog and have any ideas please let me know. I was thinking of spray paining it black and using it as a blanket holder but I'm not really sure where in my house I could hang it. Here is another question for you ... it has a Plastic Coating on it ... before I spray paint it, do I have to try and get it off or do I spray paint over top? Do I need a special kind of spray paint? Thanks for dropping by.

  1. Possible hat holder, if hung on wall (baseball hats), magazines in the bathroom, maybe even small toilet paper? You could also hang beads / necklaces on it that are of the chunky variety. Wet shoes hung upside down, over the register in winter?
