finally everything has established itself in the new pond. Water lilies and one stunning water lily.
when renovating our bathroom we finally managed to take out that silly Jacuzzi tub, transport it down to the terrace and replace the old flowerpot pond there. All it needed now was a new surround covering the weird shape of it. Marine plywood painted with 2K boat paint, Lino print for that baroque feel, and two waterproof solar LEDs found on sale.
the skirt is marine ply on the straight bit and Styrofoam ceiling trim for the curved part.
now all I have to do is wait for the water lillies to come up and the iris to grow back to their previous size. (and maybe paint that water spout)
up-cycling materials that have been hanging around for 15 years: 3 bowling pins discarded by our local bowling alley, one leg and picture frame from *kea rejects, part of Chinese table cloth and an aerial support. Resulting in a laptop/side table height adjustable from stand up to sit down in arm chair.
I must have been overwhelmed by my baroque urge in the process because this was the initial design:
so finally renovated the bathroom (see amazing tiles), used demolished Bathtub as new goldfish pond (pictures will come later when the plants look presentable), meantime discovered linen as best to wear in the heat bought a dress at L**l in plain white so dug out my 50 year old Lino cut set and combined all. The white still bothers me a bit but I think it is better now.
