Rain barrel metal mounting stand

Rain barrel mounted on old metal stand.

This old section of an antenna pole is just barely big enough for a rain barrel.

Two ratchet straps will keep it from moving side to side.

Good for you for re-purposing something others might discard as junk. Water is heavy-- did you mount it on a solid base?

I think my Mom gave this to us and she found it at a yard sale.

The rain barrel is resting on the top of the metal antenna pole.
