Stock Tank Tubs Are the Next Stock Tank Pool – The latest trend to take over Pinterest involves using the stock tanks designed to hold farm animals’ food and water as a way to add a country touch to your bathroom. The concept is quite similar to clever stock tank pools, but more permanent, since they aren’t drained and covered once the weather cools down.
But trust us, you’ll be happy to show off this creative take on a standalone tub all year long. Not only will house guests not be able to stop talking about their unique bathing experience, but these tanks are also affordable .
If you’re convinced, there are a few ways to put your own spin on this trend.

If you want to copy this chic style, after you install (step-by-step tutorial here), all you have to do is add a coat of bright white paint (or any color, really!) to your steel tub.
