Putting Your Garden on a Pedestal
Adding some art deco style to your garden couldn’t be made any easier than recycling an old enamelled pedestal sink – and what’s more it’s the only bathroom related renovation that won’t cripple you with call out fees from your friendly plumber! Above is a birdbath involving little more than an old sink (bought at a yard sale), a plug, pebbles and water. But please don’t underestimate the importance of the pebbles, you wouldn’t want a feathered friend slipping on the soap and drowning…
Here’s a slightly more horticultural take, filled with potting mix and planted with ornamental strawberries – come spring this wash stand will be draped with new foliage and brimming with bright red berries. This version doesn’t even require a plug!
