Unique Custom Fabricated Upcycled Salvaged Cast Iron Pedestal Sink Planter OOAK Garden Décor Made in the USA. Overall Dimensions: 36″ tall in the front – 48″ tall at the back of the sink, the sink is 24″ wide & 12″ deep & is HEAVY, around 200 -225 lbs. This sensational upcycled planter is just one of the many amazing creations to roll out of the SalvageDreams W.O.W. (Workshop of Wonders). With help from the extremely talented Rollie Gee, this statement piece was born. We fabricated this planter in the Winter of 2019/2020 & I then planted it in the 2020 growing season to help showcase how beautiful flowers will look bursting up out of the basin. I think we nailed it, let me tell you a little bit more about it…. All the pieces used have been salvaged from within old local barns. The black cast iron base originally held a vintage gumball machine. The bottom of the base is 18″ round. The post leading up to the sink looked a little bare so we slid an old coil spring over it, which gave it a bit of interest. The black paint is in pretty good shape, the spring was red, it is now a mixture of rust & flaking red paint. I did think about painting it, but thought that if the base & spring both pop with color, it would clash with the sink, which is in original natural condition. The top is a reasonably large old salvaged Cast Iron sink. It has a tremendous natural patina…. peeling paint, some scuff marks , here & there a touch of surface rust. It is just oozing with vintage charm & character that is to just die for. If you are looking for a statement piece, this bad boy certainly makes a statement. On the bottom of the sink, there is a collar with a lip, we ground down the lip then drilled holes & tapped them so there are threads in them. This way the sink sits upon the top plate of the base & is bolted together. Drainage is provided by the sinks drain hole, which drains down into post of the base & the excess water will trickle out of the very bottom part of the base. If an area of the ground the same diameter as the bottom of the base is dug out about 2″ & filled with crushed gravel, it will absorb the excess water & shouldn't be visible. Does the idea of owning something that no one else owns appealing to you? Does a statement piece for your yard or gardens that will command attention from all who view it interest you?
