I’ve wanted to build a rain barrel for a while, but the project had always seemed a bit intimidating. Anyone who has ever done a DIY project knows, the minute you think, “How hard can it be?” is the minute your project hits a snag. However, I can honestly say this DIY rain barrel project was incredibly easy! And, with some help from my husband, we finished it in a matter of just a few hours.
