Repurposing

I used our old cracked bathroom sink and pedistal as planters in the garden rather than sending them to the tip. #MendNotTrend is coming up with different challenges to re use various objects…
This was Good Fridays challenge (day two) we actually did this last year… They are looking bright and cheerful today.

Big sink

A few months ago I cracked our bathroom sink when I was dusting the bathroom cabinet. I’d knocked an ornament off it and it landed in the sink causing a spiderweb of cracks.

We just had it replaced. I wanted something with edges at the sides to stop water flowing over and onto the floor (hubby likes to splash water a lot). I decided on a square sink with sides, but I didn’t realise how big it was going to be! I laughed when I saw this. It could be a font! Anyway it’s OK, it works, it’s not bad. It’s just a bit big…..

Oops! When you can’t get replacement, the last thing you want to do is break your bathroom sink. I was too vigorous with the feather (nylon actually) duster. I swiped at a cobweb and knocked a heavy glass bottle off the bathroom cabinet and into the sink!

Result, big star shaped crack! Grr. So a bit of spring cleaning leads to disaster…..
