Buoyed by the recent success with our industrial-zinc-tubs-repurposed-as-planters, we thought we’d hammer yet another nail into the coffin of our sanity and go one step beyond. “Is this a vintage feeding trough?” I cheerfully asked the salvage dude selling above zinc tub at the fleamarket today. “No, I believe these were used to de-bristle pig cadavers with boiling water back in the day!” Before I could run away screaming, my husband professed his desire to use the tub as a planter, to which the seller replied “I recently saw one used as a water feature with water lillies floating in it!” My Edvard Munch features immediately settled back into a relaxed and naively game arrangement, and I heard myself wondering out loud whether it would fit in the car….and it did. In a way. Rope was involved. The boot was kinda open. We made it home.
Thankfully, the magic Google confirms that other people are
crazy creative too. I am inspired!
This one’s a cascade of zinc tubs with water flow…now I just need 10 more!
Crazy zinc tub pond shenanigans are gonna go down over here. If only the rain would stop for 5 minutes.
