old sink taken out of a bathroom was given to me, i used it to make an outdoor sink for my backyard. i put it on a recycled kitchen cabinet that was also given to me. (i don't have a picture of the before cabinet). i hooked a large plastic tubing to the drain so it can drain into my garden, and hooked a hose attachment to the faucet for water supply.

 I am in love with this. It's a shame that plants tend to whither and die in my hands Sad, otherwise I would be all over this.

Very clever! And so nifty to have an outdoor sink, and pretty, too!
