Re-purpose your old bath tub, don't throw it out!!


STOP! Enter this giveaway!!

---------------------------------------------------------


So I have recently been seeing a very odd DIY around the blog/tumblr/flickr-sphere and that is how to re-purpose an old bath tub into a couch! Say what!? Yeah, don't throw out those tubs, keep them and make a couch out of them! Brilliant right? Since I don't have my own place nor do I have my own unused tub to re-purpose, I'm going to share with you some of my favorite finds. These pictures will definitely get the creative juices flowing. Now if only my mother would let my take out the tub to do this DIY...



These ones are my favorite and would love to have some in my future backyard. These claw foot tubs can be found at a lot of yard sales and even building supply junk yards. They can easily cut it half for you or if you have a saw, do it yourself! This etsy shop sales them pre-made, if you have $1200 to spend.




This tub was re-purposed into a green garden. I also adore this idea. You could set this baby in the center of your garden and fill it with all sorts of plants. Maybe even bury it and turn it into a pond?

Awesome right?! Can't wait to get my hands on a claw foot tub. Hope you all enjoyed!
