Hello dears! I found this washing basin at the Thrift store I visit several times a week. It would of originally had a matching pitcher that went with it. They were used to wash up, shave, etc when they didn’t have running water. They usually have a floral pattern on them. I like that this one was a solid color with a simple pattern around the rim. I only paid $5 for it which I think is a deal for how big it is. I plan to use it as a serving dish for salads or pasta. I think a bunch of pasta with pesto sauce would look amazing in it. Maybe some spaghetti and meatballs. I think some people get caught up in something having a certain purpose. Just because something was made to be used for a certain thing doesn’t mean you have to use it for that. Think about stuff you see and what it could be used for besides what it was meant for. It’s a great way to express yourself.
Upper shot of basin. I love the simple pattern going around the rim!
This is going to be a great serving dish!
These two serving utensils were actually sitting in the basin when I bought it. They were only $1 for the pair, so I got them too. I almost didn’t. I then noticed they had a tribal look to them. I love tribal stuff. I think they actually look amazing with the basin. Here’s a picture of them together!
I actually have a pitcher that would of went with one of these basins. It’s Pink and has a floral pattern on it. I use it for a vase though. It looks wonderful filled with tulips. I love using vintage/antique pitchers as vases.
