I found and purchased this beverage tub at Tuesday Morning many months ago when I was still shopping in stores.
Until now I’ve used this beverage tub to hold my house plants. But some of my house plants began to look a little peaked and “touch and go”, and so I put them outside under the branches of the tree for a little humid summer break.
And after giving the tub a good cleaning instead I did this:
The red beverage tub on the opposite side of the TV still has house plants in it. It can get more light from the front door.
But this particular one didn’t get all that much light.
So I thought it would be perfect filled with folded quilts under the barn painting on the farmhouse gallery wall.
Here it is with house plants and vintage wash boards in it. I love decorating the inside of this beverage tub and creating vignettes with it.
So I suppose this will be my summer vignette, or something along these lines. The beverage tub filled with colorful quilts I sewed years ago. In the living room where I can see and enjoy them.
Cozy quilts folded in the beverage tub underneath the farmhouse gallery wall somehow just seems to go together.
You would think this would be a better decorating choice for cold winter months. But I don’t follow any rules with decorating. I just decorate how I like when I like.
Another idea to decorate with the beverage tub would be to fill it with various throw pillows.
You could put it in various rooms.
In the bathroom it could hold rolled up towels. Outdoors it could hold flowering annuals or Boston ferns.
There are so many ways to decorate with a beverage tub. So if you happen upon one, consider buying it to use not just as a beverage tub. But a variety of other uses for a vessel of this size.
