Steel tubs are super sturdy and can be used for tons of things. The basic steel look can be a bit harsh, though, so it's a great idea to give it a quick paint job.

This tub was painted for laundry, but you can make a custom paint job for any reason such as kids' toys, beverages, bathroom towels, or anything else.

Oh, very cute! :D
Thanks. This is definitely a fun craft project and one where I wanted to make more. Then there's the classic problem of where to put all the things you make and these are big!
