new studio planter

In honor of Ben, we recently planted some flowers in this old sink. It was removed from our basement 2 years ago after we'd had some plumbing work done. It's a beast of a sink! Built in 1945, this thing is made of concrete and weighs a ton. Originally, we were gonna scrap it but once we realized it was concrete, we decided to hang onto it. We weren't really sure what we were going to do with it but we thought we'd hang onto it anyway. Then, one day when I was doing laundry, I stood there looking at it and thought that it would make a great planter. A good friend of ours was over at the house recently and he and my husband hauled it outside and placed it in front of my studio.

Now it's filled with petunias, daisies, african daisies and other various flowers - I love it! I might repaint it, but for now I'm simply enjoying seeing some new life in this old thing.
