People are very fond of renovating their bathrooms.

Why a once-perfect toilet and sink combo are suddenly considered useless is a mystery to me.

You can find them left on the roadside on any given night before garbage collection day. I always wondered whether there was a better use for them...

...And now you know. Re-purpose that old porcelain as planters!

This gardener has mixed and matched several different old bathroom units, to create a harmonious display of bizarrely pretty gardening containers. I like the final effect!
