I "like" you on Facebook. Would love these for my oldest boy!


Ack! Love it & I thank you for the inspiration! We just removed a rectangular PINK sink from the guest room & wondered what we'd do w/it. I think it'll be perfect as a flower planter! Thanks. . . . very beautiful!


So pretty! I hope you don't mind. I added a link to my Porch and Garden Party at First A Dream. Your blog is one of my all time favorites.


GREAT idea. I never would have thought of that.

I love the deep color with white, too.
Sit back and enjoy now.


How cute! We have old cast iron sinks in the kitchen and bath, and a cast iron tub (not clawfoot). But they are destined for the garbage when we remodel. They arent as charming as yours! But part of me wants to keep them & get them reglazed...


That is one cute sink...you are lucky!


It's adorable, Tina... bet there are lots of them hiding in salvage yards across the U.S. So glad it's been put to such a lovely use.



Oh my - LOOOOOOOOOOVE IT!!! And the fact that it still has its fixtures makes it even cuter. Perfect base Milton! I too love old sinks and have a couple of them. One of these days when I get my farmhouse - my double cast iron is going in my mudroom - someday - oh someday! Have a beautiful week my friend.

SO sweet, I love those sinks too and I love what you did with it. Sticking it on an old sewing machine stand with a plant in it, how perfect is that!?!?!


What a great idea! I'll be sure to have my son look for one when he does bath remodels.
Also, thank you (and thank Kathy) for all the pics of her home ~ what a treat for me to view ~ you both inherited a unique and creative gene.

Great repurpose, rescue, reuse, recycle. There's a hamburger joint by the beach , called Le Tub (it was on Oprah) they line their walk with bath tubs, sinks even toilets filled with flowers. Fun place. Your sink looks great on the sewing stand, very charming on the deck. Great Idea!
Cheers! Rita

Great idea! We are doing a bathroom remodeling job and it has a sink like that. I didn't wanna throw it out because it's old. Now I can keep it and use it. Thanks!

I love old sinks......yours is so cute, and I love it on the sewing machine stand!! I also have one, and it sits on a rusty, old milk can!!! Back from Canton, and trying to recoop from the HEAT...was it a HOT one or what??? Cathy aka GGJ


How cute! and I already have the sewing machine stand. Must be on the look out.


Tina I have the sink I grew up with in my
backyard with flowers in it. I never thought
of putting it on my machine base. Thanks for
the idea. I also have a white enamel drinking fountain that my Daddy had hooked
up in his backyard and I have flowers in it
too. I love unusual item to grow flowers in.
Hope you didn't get too hot in Canton and I
hope you had fun and didn't work to hard....rest now.":O)

That little sink turned planter is adorable.


I love old sinks like that, I have an old sink in my mother in laws barn I need to get, but it'a so heavy, that's why after several years it's still there!!! hugs~~~ Daphne


I want one!!!! How cute is that and a new use for those machine bases---meant to be!!! So glad it wasn't a toilet. You DON'T have one do you???
Glad you are back posting again and hope you had a wonderful time at Canton. Soooooo hot tho! I so much enjoyed Kathy's house, saw so new ideas for me-loved the old tubs as tables.
Have a great day.
