Antique Wash Basin


I picked up this wash basin (looking around discreetly) shhhhhh..... out of the garbage of an antique market that was closing down. It was just outside with the trash! Just lying there! I felt sorry for it. It needed a home. It was so .... unloved.

I needed a base and tried a few different things on it, but I liked the way this old set of carriage wheels looked with it.
I picked up the wheels at an outdoor country market sale.  I think I paid a dollar or two for them.I added some foam in the bottom and arranged some very natural looking flowers in it, then placed a piece of glass on top.

Sorry.... no 'during' pictures... this post was from the days when I just took befores and afters!

 



Yes.... the hideous shed roof has finally been redone since this picture. FINALLY!
