How to Turn Old Bathtub into a Natural-Looking Pond

If you’re wondering what to do with your old bathtub, here’s a useful DIY project to upcycle it into a natural-looking pond. Recently, Imgur user [stumpedtown] has shared a project on how to turn an old bathtub into an aesthetic pond for decorative purpose. The bathtub creates its own liner for a pond, which simplifies the installation.

To create the project, the designer has built a cedar box with 5 1/4 inch wide cedar fence around the bathtub. The wooden box has been constructed with 16ga nails and waterproof wood glue. Even a waterfall box on top of the huge wooden box has been created. Furthermore, a four mil sheeting is wrapped around the bathtub using simple bolts.

Next step is to install the tub along with the sheeting into the wooden box. To give the natural look of a realistic pond, small plants are planted and even pebbles are arranged around it for more natural appeal.

Once the arrangement has been made, water is filled to make it appear like a perfect natural-pond that can be used for decorating a patio, garden or any other area of the house.
