This weekend I went over to my dad's to salvage parts from my plastic hose reel that is falling apart and make a hose reel box. Unfortunately it was in worse shape than I thought so we spent our time making something else instead, a footstool out of pallet wood.
Here it is in all it's glory. It is even sturdy enough to support an adult person! (It was a bit wobbly when we first started. Hurrah screws!)
Now I need to find a new hose reel, one that is probably metal so it lasts forever.
Also, check out my dad and his wife's etsy shop, Back to the Woodshop! They make things out of reclaimed pallet wood like this serving tray and cute signs/decor.
