When Shawn bought the house, the bathroom had a tiny walk-in shower and an old claw foot tub. Not being a big bath taker, Shawn used the tub for a variety of purposes- an ice-filled beer holder during parties, a storage place for laundry waiting to be folded, and later, when the tub was moved into the backyard, a home for badminton rackets and Bocce balls. Last year it found its newest and most delightful use- a planter.
You can make just about any relatively non-porous container into a planter. Just drill a few holes into the bottom to make sure it’s properly drained, buy some potting soil, fill ‘er up, and plant what you will!
