How to turn your bathtub into a jungle

So we NEVER use the bathtub and we have this large window with heaps of light coming in............. Well there is one way to enjoy the tub........... 

I just used some Pine from Bunnings cut to shape as the shelves, you can use what ever you want. 

I picked up an old crappy stand  from the Tip. I bought some black spray paint, black plastic saucer and black pebbles from Bunnings.

 I just placed a curtain rod in the tub for the Devils Ivy to climb on.

 On the window sill is a couple of water propagation vases and a couple of small pots.

 Cut the timber to shape to fit on the bathtub for your shelves. I just made 4 shelves. You could cover the whole bathtub if you wanted too.

 I just spray painted the old stand black, gave it two coats. 
Once dried I brought it inside , giving lots of height for the Devil’s Ivy to climb up and also trail down. 

I placed a large black plastic saucer onto the stand. Put in the black pebbles, the pebbles are there to stop the pot plants sitting in water if accidentally over watered. It allows the bottom of the pots to breathe. I have used a couple of terracotta pots and a couple of black plastic pots. 

It is really lovely to go in the bathroom with a living jungle 🌿💚

Ironically, I reckon you've now made even more reason to have a relaxing bath - the surrounds are wonderful @mich1972. Thanks for the inspiration.
