Hey everyone, i just got my first flat, i was pretty tired of my old kitchen so i wanted to do something about, it had to be special so i took some inspiration from the internet, and i Want to share what i came with ! Unfortunately i don't have pictures from the kitchen/sink before the Update .... But believe me it was nasty :)

And if you like my project, please vote ;)

still editing ... :)

Step 1: What You Need

You need some :
 
for the sink support

- Wood

for the sink itself :

- a Bowl from IKEA, mine was a stailess Bowl of 14' In diameter

( http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/50057254/#/00057256)

- sink outlet

- a transparent resin ( got mine from: http://www.metalclay.co.uk/products/Crystal-Resin-300ml.html)

other :

- a printer

- inkejet white printable vinyl ( got mine from : http://www.grafisk-handel.dk/shop/tecco-selvklaebende-vinyl-4185p.html)

costs:

resin : 23 USD
vinyl 3 x 50 sheets ( wall board sink ) : 120 USD
bowl : 15 USD
sink outlet: 25 USD

total : 193 USD

Step 2: Designing the Patterns for the Kitchen Board and the Surrounding of the Sink

i used the illustrator to draw the patterns, again inspiration just from google images :)

I uploaded the file with the patterns, *. format :

Step 3: Designing Patterns for the Wall

i used the illustrator to draw the patterns, again inspiration just from google images :)

I uploaded the file with the patterns, *. format :

Step 4: Designing the Sink

i used the illustrator to draw the patterns, again inspiration just from google images :)

I uploaded the file with the patterns, *. format :

at the start i printed the patterns in normal paper, just to make sure that, everything fitted as it should :)

Step 5: Building the Sink

so what i did, is :

1- starting by using a white spray paint on the bowl, so i got a nice bagground, then i cut the patterns  in printed on the vinyl and stuck then on the bowl.

2- i used a dril to cut a hole in the buttom of the bowl, and installed the outlet for the sink.

3- i mixed the resin and i coted the bowl with it ( 2 mm thikness or so ), the sink was then ready


Step 6: Building the Sink - 2

i removed the old sink, and build a rounded frame for my bowl, and installed it on the old rectangular hole for the old sink. and fixed the wooden panel with some screws to the kitchen board

Step 7: The Wall and Kitchen Board

printed my patterns on the vinyl and decorated the wall and the kitchen board.

the last step was to coat the board with resin to i can protect my patterns from water splashes .. et voila. it came to life :)
<p>ugly</p>
<p>thats AMAZING.. Can you please share design file if possible?</p>
Beautiful. I love t.
I am in awe of your talent and I love your design!
wow!!!
Looks amazing!
So beautiful!!!
i love the patterns, good work!
thank you :)
Looks great! How did you get the flat vinyl sheet to go into the bowl without creasing?
what i did, was cutting the pattern in small pieces and align then separately inside the bowl ( look at step 4 ) that way, there was no creasing :)
