Gallery: Benjamin Bullins Crafts a Chic Sink & Vanity from an Old Bike

 

An old, vintage bike becomes something to primp over in this design that turned a forgotten two-wheeler into a beautifully hand-crafted vanity and sink. Created by New Orleans-based crafter and decorator Benjamin Bullins, this bike sink is super clever and a great piece of decor for those who love cycling.

Bullins spends much of his time creating sculptures that reflect the culture of New Orleans, and often takes found objects and assembles them into works of art, furniture and home decor. He also has some experience with photography, construction and interior design.

For the bike sink, Bullins took an old, vintage bike and crafted a handmade wooden countertop and added a vessel-like sink to sit on top. Supported against the wall, the bike becomes a unique addition to the bathroom, and the bike basket in front becomes a handy place to store towels and other bathroom items.
