    Put some holes in the sink,then plant them up using succulent soil and different cacti and succulent plants. Place on a plant stand and use in your garden as a focal point.

    put it on a pedestal base; use it: do your bathroom theme w/sea shells and beachy things/blue paint on walls. a lot of seaside things to embelish

    A few ideas come to mind.....cut the shape out and use it as a bowl to store hand towels or soaps (for a guest fill it with towel/sm.shampoo/soap/new razor/ travel size deodorant buy brands that the colors blend in with the beachy the look), make sure once the shape is cut out to sand entire thing smooth. it's the subtle touches that owe not the glaring ones. another idea is use it as a mold to make planters or bowls, if you have a party you can make all your serving bowls the same shape (if wanted have them different colors); put it in an old sewing machine cabinet take out machine and drop it in the hole and use it as a gardening sink;you said you have more then one right? cut the shape out place them all together to make a large flower shape pond stagger them so the water flows; last but not least cut the shapes out and pland herbs in them....:)

    I would use it as a mold to make concrete planters for succulents or a birdbath or ..... whatever you desire.

    I like the idea of using one as a mold. You could also use one to make molds for walking stones.

    Garden fountain idea is a good one could have multiple heights grouped together for added interest since you have more than one fixture to work with : )

    Idea #1) Consider an outdoor sink for potting plants, entertainment, or easy clean up before coming in the house. Idea #2) Set it up on the backsplash side and add a decorative feature (electric light?, statue? floral?) at the drain hole and place along a narrow path against the house or fence. Glue pieces of decorative tile along the 'bottom' to cover the faucet holes.

    I don't know how many you have but if you can't come up with ideas for all of them, you can always donate some to your local Habitat for Humanity store.

    makes a really cool outdoor fountain, against a wall, with a spigot on the wall and a recirculating pump through the drain. you can either place it on the ground( dig a hole) or build a footing with landscape stones. place pots of ferns, palms and other beachy plants around the back of the new pool( cover the holes) and a few large conch shells and then dream of the beach when you look at it.

  • Give them to Habitat for Humanity.

    You can use it as a mold for cement projects. Make sure to rub vegetable oil on it first and then plastic in the sink before pouring cement

    A friend found one in a municipal transfer station. She plugged the drain & created a base of large stones to use it as a birdbath ~~beautiful !

    I have the same problem and the only solution I have come up with is to rip it out lol

  • Pallet Man Pallet Man on Oct 26, 2016
    I take a hammer to them and bust them into pieces so they fit in the trash easily. Or, set them on a stand and use them as a potting table. They are mineral based so they cannot be cut without either a carbide grit or a diamond grit blade. I've cut the bowl out of many of these counters to replace them with ceramic bowls because cultured marble gets so grimy once the gel coat wears off. .

    I'd use it to make a mould with latex, what a great shape.

      You can purchase liquid latex online near where you live, you coat shell basin with pam (spray oil) so it doesn't stick. Paint on the latex with a paint brush, let it dry and keep adding coats until you have a nice replica of the shape you want. let it dry and then peel it off, you now have a shell shape to make anything you want. a large candle, a clay base pot plant...whatever you can dream up. Have fun with it. Lee

    If you have the tools, cut it out and make a shell bird bath or pet water bowl. Place a rubber stopper in the drain hole for easy cleaning. Place it on bricks or stones for the base.

    I would freshen the sink up with paint. Next get a small hard ball ( like a table tennis ball) and paint it in a shiny opal finish. Glue it inside the sink, like a pearl. It would be nice in a powder room and would become a conversation piece.
