Built a soaking sink for soaking potted plants that I don't want to drag into the house. It's a used laundry sink from the reuse-it center set into a 2"x3" base covered with weathers fence boards; used a gray stain on the new wood to make it blend in better. It has a door on the front to hide the pool chlorine bucket (that I got from my neighbor) that the sink drains into. The sink is 13"x16"x12" and the base is 36" tall.

That will cut down on the mess soaking makes. I like to soak my potted plants, too, and I only have the kitchen sink to do this and I often have a major cleanup. Good idea.

This is much deeper than my kitchen sink, so it'll accommodate larger pots better and it leaves the kitchen sink free for other duties.

Love the way you have put that great idea together. I have the laundry tub in my garage and find many uses for it including bathing my 2 Sons (4 footed)
