On Friday I bought myself this magazine
at my happy place, Barnes + Noble:
Look at this idea
for an outdoor sink/potting table!
Do you see what’s happening here?
Looks like someone put some legs
on an old sink,
hooked up the faucets to the outdoor spigot
+ placed a galvanized bucket underneath
to catch the drain water.
G E N I U S !
Wow, could we use something similar
next to our back door,
replacing this bench + birdhouse vignette:
Here’s the same space in yet another configuration,
being photo-bombed by Chloe the Dachshund.
As you can see,
we have the galvanized bucket-drain situation handled.
We also had a long, vintage kitchen sink,
similar to the one used in the magazine,
but wouldn’t you know it — we SOLD IT!
No worries, though.
I bought this vintage cutie at a garage sale for $10!
Sorry for the bad snapshot,
but you get the idea — isn’t it perfect?
Now all we need is a table.
Perhaps G.O. could make one himself,
like this project from last summer,
for which he repurposed an old wooden ironing board top
+ some black pipe from Menards.
Sold it, though!
He could make another large table/island
like this recent project,
made from reclaimed lumber
+ an outboard motor shipping frame.
Turns out we sold that, too,
but we might just still have this old table:
We got it at some long-past flea market
or perhaps another garage sale.
I can’t remember;
nor can I remember if we still have it!
I’ll check, though, so stay tuned!
