The Old Kitchen Sink

5 Materials
2 Days
Small backyard multi purpose station: potting station; herb garden; ice bucket for wine and cold drinks.
1) Dig post holes and set fence post. 2) cut 2x2 to make 4 cross boards (2 at top on either side of posts and 2 at bottom) 3) Place a board at the bottom to form a shelf in between the posts. 4) set 2 to three thick Contractor Garbage bags between the cross posts and fill with dirt. 5) punch holes in front of bag just large enough to fit roots of plants through (petunias, potato plants works well covers the front of garbage bag in full bloom and at the top plant your favorite herbs). 6) On the back side of the sink we covered the garbage bag with burlap. 7) mount sink (found old sink in garbage).
