From Bath to Backyard Seating

Over at One Krieger Chick, Ariean tells us, “Years ago, my dad came across this cast iron bathtub in excellent condition and since he knows I kinda like old stuff, he asked if I would like it.”  Of course she said yes, but it took her a few years to figure out how she’d use it.

Well, recently Ariean and her husband came up with a creative use for the old tub, and it’s their favorite project so far!  They coverted the bathtub into an outdoor lounge.  They cut away the front of the tub, leaving the back, sides, bottom, and feet intact.  They refinished the paint job on the tub.  Then, Ariean made some adorable cushions with foam and outdoor fabric to create a comfy lounger.  So cute!

  1. Wow! Thanks so much for featuring my Sofa! It really did fall into the category of Roadkill Rescue before, but now it’s such a fun piece on our patio. Have a Happy Day!
