Try It Tuesday

With it heating up outside, I’ve been working on the lawn A LOT. Which means I’ve been tracking mud and grass in the house. Which means I’ve been vacuuming more. Which means I’m about to lose my mind. So, in order to keep my sanity, I consulted Pinterest for some help and found today’s Try It–a foot rinsing station for the backyard!

Here’s what I used:

~A screwdriver

That’s it. That’s all I needed.

 

First, I poked holes in the bottom of the bucket with a screwdriver:

After that, I dropped the rocks inside:

That’s it! This project took $5 and 5 minutes to make! And, it works:

This worked great! The holes in the bottom of the bucket help to keep the water from pooling, the rocks keep the bucket from slipping or blowing away in the Oklahoma wind, as well as cutting down on splash-back (thus keep dry clothes dry) and avoiding getting your feet muddy or grassy!

(And yes, those are Huff the Tot’s adorable toes!)

Do you have one of these? What’s yours made out of? Do you like it?
