Planter is now serving as a fountain bucket after sealing the hole in bottom and seams. Old hand water pump gutted out and fountain pump and tube ran through it. Just what the wife wanted me to do. Got to keep Mama Happy or nobody's Happy!
This bucket is exactly what I was looking for. We are actually using it for a decoration for our gift table at our wedding. It will hold the "pirate" sign to tell guests where to place the bride and groom's booty. :) I painted it to look old and worn as though it had been on a pirate ship. It's perfect.
The quality of this wasn't superb, but OK if you want a cheap planter. It definitely has that "mass produced" look. But as a planter itself it would be OK, as long as you don't care about it looking great.
I purchased this item assuming it had a completely sealed bottom for use with a water lily. It actually does have a drainage hole so beware
