I don’t know about you guys but I can’t afford a swimming pool. I can’t even afford an above ground swimming pool either. That being said, I do have access to free hay from my dad’s farm.
I saw these projects last year and wanted to share it with you guys today because these pools are really easy to make and can give you a functioning swimming pool for the summer months for a lot less money than the regular ones. Plus they look cool!
So if you have always wanted a pool but never have the money to spend on a decent one this is your project! When the summer is over, you simply disassemble the liner, stack the hay and wait for next summer.
