“Ezekiel saw a Wheel”
Retiring to the Bathroom
If you’re one of those with a taste for something different—and given the number of times we have decided to write about something different, we probably qualify for that description ourselves—but if, as I say, you crave something no one else has, you may have come to the right place.
Actually, this is a product that can be used in a variety of ways. Someone outfitting a bar given over to NASCAR racing might find bathrooms outfitted in this motif to be just the thing.
Perfect for the Car Enthusiast?
And how many women have a rival in the form of a high performance car that their husband is constantly tinkering with? And washing his hands in the sink, with all the mess that sort of thing invariably creates. For some it makes sense for Hubby to simply use those same skills he employs in engine repair and plumb a separate sink for washing up on the days he’s been fixing the car. But tell him, right? Well, now’s your chance.
Suddenly, the idea of a separate sink for the grease monkey hubby has an almost impeccable logic. It might even be used in a separate basement room, or something attached to the garage itself. Plus, you can always console yourself with the thought that you’re actually helping the environment because we’re reusing a product that would simply go to the landfill. In fact Bristol and Bath bills this particular line of sinks as their Second Chance Collection, as they have a number of sinks and sink cabinets they have fashioned from reclaimed materials.
Style Doesn’t Come Cheap
Actually, given the price of this particular unit, I might be inclined to just let it go to the landfill. But, hey, that’s just me!
The sink itself is an actual tire that has been fitted with a copper basin and galvanized steel mounting hardware. It is available in a number of colors, although if it is used for “greasy-hand cleanups,” that sort of thing might be superfluous. But anything that gets those hands out of the kitchen sink, right?
As Joseph implied, there is a price for being stylish. The single tire sink and mirror combination lists for about $2800, and the stacked tires version comes in at about $3700. These are actually recycled tires from what I was told. These products are made in Italy. What a great way for Italy to keep its landfills down while making money selling the stuff to us. Turning trash into treasure…
On the serious side, I think that these items would go perfectly in the bathrooms next to the spotless garages of some of the car collectors I know. It’s a novel idea, and I personally like it.
