DIY: A Simple Outdoor Sink

May 25, 2017

Years ago we saw a simple outdoor sink setup, consisting of a hardware store tap with a pot set beneath it, and were inspired to create our own version for The Ultimate DIY Work Space in our new Gardenista book.

Photography by Matthew Williams and styling by Alexa Hotz for Gardenista.

For a simple outdoor sink, all you need is a water tap, a tabletop or shelf, and a pail or pot to catch water.
