To be honest I do not know what it originally was used for - my guess is a laundry sink or something but what I envisioned was a super sweet drink cooler for BBQ's. There is a plug at the bottom so just fill this baby up with ice and pop in some cool drinks and you are good - plus it rolls. Don't know why that is important for a cooler but it is cool.
I think this could also make a fun planter with beautiful flowers or even a utility sink in a laundry room or mud room. That would take some work and some plumbing but it could be a cool effect.
I think I will continue to use it as a drink cooler though - now I just need to plan a party.
The real question that I need your help with is whether to paint the white base a fun color or leave it rustic and natural?
What do you think?
