Is the multi-purpose galvanized tub the most useful invention ever? It's cheap, durable, rust resistant, and can even be used as an ad hoc sink.

I spotted this example of galvanized tub genius on my annual trip home to Sweden last year, at the garden and home decor store Enkla Ting. Kajsa, the store owner, is an avid gardener; when she isn't potting plants or weeding her flower beds, she writes an inspiring blog where she posts about her home projects. Kajsa made her own sink by using a galvanized vintage tub for the store's bathroom. Recreate this look with the following items:
