These are so dang cool and unusual!!!! What they were originally we believe were food troughs at the USVA hospitals. Or possibly…garbage troughs?? Rectangular and made of aluminum with tapered sides and flat bottoms plus very handy bail handles on either end. They are so very versatile, and their uses are nearly endless. Some of the things we have used them for over the years (in our design projects while we were interior designers before we retired to sell our wares) are many. We used them as planters and window boxes; containers for food and dry goods on a lower shelf in a huge kitchen island; as a centerpiece on a long gorgeous farmhouse table; as a vessel bar sink, a laundry room sink, and a potting shed sink; as magazine and book holders; as toy containers for a child’s bedroom; and we have even iced down a few beers. They are priced individually, so you pick how many you need to do what you want to do. There are currently 8. Make a few yours!
