The Bathtub Planter?

For us, the bathtub as planter is hit or miss. We love the darker tones in this photo as opposed to the shabby chic white versions. What say you?

It can be hard to get rid of a giant bathtub, so maybe it's easier to just fit it into your outdoor decor. Or maybe you're really into the idea and have incorporated it on purpose. Either way, we love unexpected elements in the garden and the bathtub can (sometimes) be one of them.
