Description: Walking through my Ikea local store, I saw this beautiful serving bowl, and I thought: “This is a face basin for sure!”. But it was not. So I had to turn it into a face basin.
First of all, I cut a hole (around 25 cm of diameter) into a wooden board. Biggest problem met was to adapt the bottom of the bowl so that the water would run completely.
I solved that hitting the bottom of the bowl with a round pointed hammer. I cut a hole at the bottom of the bowl. I placed the bowl into the hole in the wooden board, and I connected the pipe (bent like to create a syphon).
