What You’ll Need

  • Galvanized washtub

Project Directions

1.  Gather measurements

Measure the interior width of the washtub where the shelf will be placed. Cut the piece of wood to that length.

2. Space for shelf

Drill two holes on each side of the washtub at the point  where the shelf will sit. Align the shelf inside. Drive screws through the washtub into the wood, securing it in place.

3. Spot for the hook

Drill a hole in the bottom of the washtub to align with the hook. Screw the hook into place.

4. Hang the dog washing station

Drill two holes in the bottom of the washtub. Hang the dog washing station near an exterior faucet using screws driven through the holes. Drape a hose around the outside and attach to the faucet.
