Create a Kids Sand and Water Table from an Old Sink
by Kelsey from Tattered and Inked
Hi everyone!! My name is Kelsey and I blog at Tattered and Inked, where I share DIY projects & furniture redos! I’m so excited to share one of my favorite projects to date with you guys! We have been searching for the perfect water table for our toddler girl & finally decided to create our own. So today I’m sharing a DIY Sand & Water table from an old, discarded sink!
I have had in my head to do some sort of water play table for our one year old this summer since Arkansas summers are scorchers and water play is essential to survival during the summer months.
I searched for a few but never found one that I really liked.
So we decided to create our own.
The idea all revolves around re-using an old metal sink.
So I immediately ran to my favorite discard junk palace, the Habitat Restore, and was in luck!
They had several sinks that would do the trick but I really wanted metal and double basin.
Here’s what I came home with for about $30.
- Double basin sink
- 2×4 (we used approx. 2 8 ft. pieces.)
- 1×2 (we used part of a 10 ft. piece)
- We used scrap pieces for the legs but 2x4s could work for this as well
- Wood screws
- Cordless nail gun & nails
- Rustoleum spraypaint in White
- Rustoleum Clear Coat Spraypaint
- Paint color of choice (I used Meadow Mist by SW)
- 1 50lb bag of sand
- 1 drain cover
- Liquid Nails
- 1 Drain Plug
Are you ready for this????
Kelsey, this is so much fun and I bet you are having a BLAST this summer!
