My hubby spent an hour at Lowes figuring out how to make this..I love it

Outside 7 days ago
Using a 1/2" threaded pipe at each end, slightly bent at the top, drill a hole in the bottom of the kettle and insert 3/8" soft rubber tubing down thru the pipe and close off the bottom of the kettle with a galvanized floor flange . Use a pond pump that will lift water 7-8 ft, follow those directions for it but to place it to the barrell,( which is a large plastic type, we were afraid a whiskey barrell would leak,) drill a hole in the outside lower edge and insert pump tubing, use silicone to seal it, the center is a flower stand and the tray is a old cooking tray.Fill barrel with water, plug it in and woa la.

    Menards sells whiskey barrell liners that would probably work for this project.

    Great idea! Love it! If you coat the inside of a whiskey/planting barrel with that spray you see advertised on tv you could use one.
