Galvanized Tub becomes a planter

One galvanized old wash tub, a pair of end tables I got at an estate sale store. Primed the tables first in white, then used Annie Sloan provence color. Lightly distressed it to reveal the detail and the white primer color below. Taped off the tub with painters tape and used the same color Annie Sloan paint to add some strips. For the words I printed out the words on the printer and use carbon paper to transfer it to the tub. Then I used a paint pen. Screwed the tub to the legs and added some drain holes. 

I have another end table now I just need another tub the same size. Would love to add these to the entrance to my garden. One on each side. Planted with some sweet potato vine and coleus  with some curly willow added for accent.
