A simple home solution ... messy garden hose finds a home ... :)

...I feel in love with this cast iron tag at the most unlikely of places to find it ... :):) ... at a road side market ... that sells many such things for a steal . Basically what they are, is just discarded / rejected / or just last season samples and seconds. And yep! mostly meant for  the export market...

 ... o.k so I loved what I saw ... loved the finish and it looked worn out  ... love that patina too ... :):) ...
Hey! do I have a solution to a problem that has been nagging me for a while now. So the ssue is my hose pipe in the garden ... looks super ugly are strewn across ... and I have not been able to think of a neat solution to put it away ...


...ah! that pile is a neat look ... believe me it gets worse on a normal day ... ;) ...

...not anymore ... :) ... all organised and completely off the lawn ...


 ... its sure fun to find simple organising solutions around the house ...  helps keep you focused on the look you are working to create . And making sure clutter doesn't ruin all the beautifying projects ... :)
Would love to hear your thoughts about how organising works for you ...

Hi Snehal,
;) ... trust me ... :):) ... and I seem to be spreading that infection around ... I sure know of a few husbands... standing by the road side ... completely red faced and hating me with all their heart ... ;)

Beautiful solution Rajee...and who cares where it came from. Looks lovely in your garden...and what more it is functional. the normal garden hose organizers are so boring...

You always find a solution and get it done so beautifully.
All your repurposing are simply wonderful.I especially cannot forget your dining table idea.I am waiting to go to
Mehrauli as soon as I am in Delhi. :)

Hi Anpu,
Thanks for dropping by ... love to hear from you... :)
I infact have a soft spot for these unlikely places ... may be an amature adventurer thrives below my designer spirit ... ;)Andas for those boring hose pipe organisersthat I used to so hate in my garden in the bay area ... can't find them here ... so innovation was the call of the times ;)... :):)

Hi Neha,
Oh! I really love that iron piece myself ... and they were so inexpensive ... I have half a mind to go buy a few more of them ... already a few ideas of what to do with them are realing in my head (got to justify my buy to the big guy at home) .... ;)

Hi Sarmistha,
:):) ... Hence forth I will be more honest and also share my stories about when I run into disaster, guess its only fair to admit it happens more often than one can imagine ... what you design is a completely distorted version at the finish ... :):)Honestly.
I too love the dining table idea and there again ... you have no clue what I gave to be made and what they send me back from Jaiselmer ... ;)And dure to pure economical reasons I had to put up with it ... but now over the years I have gotten tolove my piece ... :):) Do visit Mehrauli ... they are now working at making that place a lil' more shopper friendly ... and hopefully better stores ... :):)
Thanks for leaving me your comments ... love tohear what my readers feel ... :)
