Love my New / Old Sink!
I don't know if you guys are like me, but I just LOOOOVVVVEEEE fun "old" stuff. My friend, Larraine, will be moving soon and she said she just didn't need this sink unit to tag along with her. I was HaPPy HaPPY to give it a new home. There was so many places I wanted to put it, on my back porch, down at the greenhouse for all our customers to wash up after they pilfer through the flowers, in the shop to make a display, but it ended up on the side porch of the shop. In time, I will paint the bottom a pretty color, but as for now it is perfect jus' like it is. It's a great work surface 'cause it is metal, and when you can reuse instead of buy new - that makes it all the better.
For all my wonderful readers out there, keep an eye out at salvage centers or old homes being torn down - many times they are free for the takin'. My other sink I rescued from a home being demolished is a beautiful large, cast iron one that must weigh at least 1,000 lbs. (exaggerating a tad) but it is heavy. It's also on the front porch at the shop, but one day it will have a proper home with some kind of neat surround built under it. Oh, if there were only enough hours in the day!! Anybody else out there love old sinks like I do? I know, an odd item to collect but I was jus' wondering.
Everybody have a Fantastic Day! And remember, find the beauty in things of yesterday! Cathy
