Foot Washing Station – I can not tell you how often I stated on this summer. I want something to wash my feet! You see, once I come from the house by the backyard I must walk through the mudroom, throughout the dining area, and about to the restroom with filthy feet to wash off them. I had to have the ability to wash off them outside before I venture in.
This small “carpet” solves the issue of becoming clean feet until I come from the house. The dirt and the dirt will slide through the cracks so that my toes get dry and clean until I return indoors. I simply keep the carpet right by the doorway and I will venture straight in after my toes are washed. Additionally, it works well for small feet (or only little men and women generally!), particularly the ones that love a fantastic mud puddle. This foot washing station is simple to make and very cheap! Only a couple of bucks for timber and in case you’ve got leftover house paint you’re running a business! Let us make one!
Everything You Need:
- Outdoor Paint
- Heavy Duty Thin Rope (I used clothesline rope)
- Masking Tape
- 1″x2″ Boards (3 8 ft planks)
Start by cutting on the planks into 12 portions of the exact same length. My hubby cut me with a chop saw. We reduce these 16 inches. Line all up until the boards in their sides and create marks in the three inch, the 8 inch, along with the 13th-inch marks. This is for the gap placements. Drill holes in the marks at the surfaces of the planks using a drill and bit. You’ll have to be certain that you use a drill bit which can produce a hole big enough to set your rope so be certain that you check it until you drill all of the holes. Drill 3 holes in each plank.
Employing an exterior or outside paint, paint all one of those planks at the colors needed. You will need to be certain that you use water-based (not petroleum based) paints, otherwise, they’ll take a long time to wash. It is possible to use leftover exterior house paints or you’ll be able to check the clearance section of the regional hardware store paint section. That elaborate maroon metallic paint up there was 25 per quart! I discovered this color in a slightly damaged could for only $1. It is worth checking!
Paint all of the planks. You may paint them different colors, the same, or some other mix of patterns you desire! Allow the pieces dry. Grab your rope and then cut 3 pieces that are long. Tie a knot at the end of every slice and wrap a few of the masking tape across the opposite end of each slice. This will make it much easier to find the rope through every hole in the planks. Twist the rope through every plank and tie a knot following every plank. Continue this till you string all the boards together and tie another knot at the end. Repeat for the 2nd and 3rd sets of holes till you have tied the whole mat together.
Now it is ready to use! Measure up on the plank and use a hose to wash your toes! Just like my tans lines? Cute huh? The small feet alongside mine have discovered a different sand pool, but we’ve got our fair foot washing station to receive them clean until we walk in the home! Even in the event that you don’t actually require a foot washing station, this mat produces a fun small rug in the front of a doorway or a wonderful spot to place shoes that will need to wash.
