Galvanized Tub Turned Planter

In full on gardening mode, I have been looking at planters and have found some beautiful ones.
I have several on my wish list.

However, if you have priced planters.. some of them are c r a z y expensive and just not in my
budget right now. (I'd rather buy more plants) :o)

Do you see the Pretty Purple Flowers below? Gorgeous!
I have several of those and love how they perform so when I saw a came across
a pink one at a local store, of course a couple of those came home with me too.
However, I needed a new planter for them.

I found a few I was debating on, and then I ran across a entire section of galvanized tray's,
tubs/ice buckets, utensil holders,  and this oval tub/ice bucket caught my eye:


All I needed to do was get out my drill and add a drainage hole.

(I bought my drill in a drill combo kit - can be found here)

Drainage Hole Complete!

Then I took the planter to my planting station and sat it in my cart, and
added my potting mix.

I placed my plants to get a visual..

So pretty!
Then planted them up and chose to add in a creeping jenny plant as well.

This beautiful "planter" found a spot on my back deck where I can enjoy it all the time!

The brassy tone handles are such a fun touch.

Aren't these some of the prettiest flowers?
These particular flowers are: Supertunia Pink Star Charm by proven winners.

Supertunia's are definitely some of my favorites!

Here are a few other tubs that look like they would be cute planted up as well:



I think it is so fun to think outside the box in using items for planters..
I have a succulent in a coffee cup with saucer behind it that I think is just adorable,
an old chicken feeder, and so on..
what kind of unique planters have you used?

Here is how my planter looks now.
