Goodbye Laundry Sink, Hello Planter

I’m participating in my first Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch.



This is where my ugly laundry room sink used to be, that was never used.  Click here to see how ‘lovely’ it was…not.

 This is the before– after removing the sink. The plumbing is staying, I’m just hoping to camouflage it a bit.




I found a stand and an old seed bin at the flea market and decided it would serve as a great planter.  I could change it seasonally with pots of flowers and ivy.



Here it is, empty, except for spanish moss, waiting to be planted…



My laundry “room” is really just a pass-thru, from the  garage to the kitchen…



I love the tattered, worn paper ‘Seeds’ label.



 I added a ceramic bird and bird’s nest…



And for fun, my Portmeirion plate, that echos the daffodils.



A close up of an old trowel…



Some apples for additional color…



A pot of tulips, even though they won’t last very long…



At least now there is something cheery to look at  besides dryer sheets…



It almost makes me believe that spring is right around the corner.




Who needs a laundry sink anyway? :-)

Stop by the Porch for more inspiration…

    Absolutely gorgeous. I’m going to stare at this instead of all the snow falling outside! Actually, I would love to put something like this on my porch very, very soon.
