Potting Wash Tub

I am loving this old galvanized wash tub!
I have two potting benches but they are used for anything but actually holding potting soil.
It truly was a rescue project. I had to reseal several holes in the bottom of the tub and the wheels are locked from rust and remain locked.
I used oil paint and had to paint it more than once to seal off the rust.
It is the perfect height for potting plants and it holds a large bag of potting soil. I do store this under above decking on our house, so it never gets wet.
Loving this project!
