LOVE the idea of painting the outside of the tub! I'm going to get one from my Mom and now I am so going to paint it! I'm going to make mine a water feature for my cats! Goldfish and water plants!

Hi. Please let us know how the tub water feature is coming. I have a clawfoot tub I just got and I was wanting to do the same, make it into a water feature. I also have a concrete pillow that I was thinking of using it with the tub. Maybe sometype of shower flowing out of it into the tub. Still working on that thought.

I've always loved these old tubs used in the garden :) In my new upcoming craftsy class ( DRAB TO FAB HOME AND PATIO) I will be showing some fun and great ways to paint these type of garden elements! Keep a look out for the class- coming in July :) Cool products, fun ways to spruce these finds up and make em personal :) Hope to see you there!

what did you use to paint the outside of the tub? We have one in our garden and it gets a lot of comments from visitors. I would like to paint it though as the white is so stark.

I don't know what type of paint was used on the side. I would think a Rustoleum type paint was used. It was already painted when passed down to me. The daylilies love it and are about 4 feet tall now! I put in various annuals every year to change it around. In front, I have tube roses at the back and Iris all in front. On either side I chose Peonies to put there. HINT: make sure you put it on a slab of stone or heavy wood, it will sink when all the dirt and flowers are added, along with the time it sits there. I have really enjoyed having it in my yard! it is a fun piece!
