I thought this idea was brilliant when I pinned it almost 2 years ago.
Then, I continued to think this was a brilliant idea when we found a post and equestrian hook over a year ago.
The problem, this brilliant idea, post and hook continued getting moved to the bottom of the to do list FOR OVER A YEAR.
In the meantime, countless barnwood bunnies, whales, foxes were made.
And, things like this would show up in my trunk.
We finally came to an understanding, it was time to mark this brilliant idea off of our to do list before we could take in or on any other projects.
So...painting began. A helpful tip, when painting something that is going outside, invest in a pint of good outdoor paint. A little will go along way.
Once the post was dry, the hook was put in place. Everything was starting to have a refine feel, except for the new screws that secured the hook.
The new screws took on a more polished look with a little Novacan Black Patina.
Applying a little patina with a paint brush, the screws aged right before our eyes.
The post was then sunk into the ground...
And, the hose was FINALLY put into place.
2 years later, it's done!
I can't wait to add something new to the to do list.
