5 Gal bucket wrapped in burlap held in place by twine - interesting planter idea Thin king this could be really cute in oil cloth as well. Think I found a solution for the bazillion 6 gallon buckets I have ion my deck trying to grow tomatoes.
My soaker tub is set up identically to this. Instead of my wrought iron shelf, I would love to do a built in. I've also been torn with beadboard vs. tile for the front of the tub. Turns out I love the beadboard and its cheaper!
