Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas
Posted in: Uncategorized

Are you a good recycler? Good to the point to reuse an old bike as a “pedestal” for your sink? When I first saw this I was laughing and loving it at the same time. Isn’t it a cute idea? Definitely very unique!  But the more I look at it, the more I ask myself if I actually would do such a thing in my own house.

I wish I had more pictures to share with you guys, but even not having other pictures I’m sure we can see plenty here, right? Take a good look at the sink itself. Not that common. Do you like the waves? The room overall is great. I love the old-charm feel to it, the subway tiles, the floors and what about that window? Just great!

Now, about the “bike”, I’m sure I’d keep hurting my legs on the pedal. The cute thing is using the basket to store the towels and soap. That’s clever!

To be really honest, I’m not really sure what to think of this idea and I can’t wait to know your opinion on this one, since it’s not so obvious. I know some people will look at it and love it and others will be a bit confused. What do you think? Cool or Fool?

I hope you guys have great plans for this weekend and take something from this post: Don’t take everything so seriously. Be creative. Having fun along the way is very important!

* “Cool or Fool” happens every Friday. I’ve started this section where I post “different” and controversial things that I know some of you will love and others will not. The point is to tell us what you really think, regardless of anything. It’s a space where you speak your mind and analyze what you see. Have fun with it and laugh along the way!

  1. Well, unique is definitely the word for it. I do think that placing the towels in the basket was a neat touch. I love the subway tiles and the floor. I really like the sink design too. Although I wouldn’t want a bicycle in MY bathroom, I still have to give this a “Cool” rating just for being so original.
    Hope you and your family have a great weekend Luciane!

  2. Humm, it is cute, fun and a great conversation piece, and if it fits the homeowners personality, why not! Hope you are feeling great cannot believe its nearly time!!!! So excited for you!!!!! XOXO

  3. I wouldn’t use this idea in my current home, but I think it would be adorable in a beach house with one of those pretty turquoise or pink bicycles. I think it’s “cool!”

    Qual a data provável?
    Seus posts estão uma belezura, não deixo comentários sempre porque também estou correndo, chega o fim de ano e a gente tem que correr mais, mas viajo sempre por aqui – lindos posts.
    Adorei a idéia da bike funcionando como bancada de lavabo, já salvei e quando postar deixo um link para você, ok?

    Personally I wouldn’t do it but if it’s right for the homeowners it’s a great idea, it is cute but I wonder how stable that bike is for the sink?

    Have a wonderful weekend

    Cool for originality – ouch for the times I would hit myself on the pedal and not cool for cleaning it. Super cute though 😉 Have a great weekend Luciane!

  9. Sheila Zeller said,

    Ah, this is so funny – I pinned this one on Pinterest because I thought it was so cool! But only in that sense of just being a very creative, fun idea. It’s not one I would actually follow through with for myself, but honestly, how cool is that?!

    I hope you have a good weekend Luciane. Every day I hold my breath to see if there’s a post from you… because if there’s not, I’m pretty sure we will all know why! I know you’re very ready, and so for you I hope little Matthew decides to relocate soon!

    Cool, very unexpected and original, wouldn’t go in my home but hey this is thinking outside the box and perfect for the right home!

    Wow — I just wrote up a blog entry on that bike a couple of days ago for the weekend that I will be away ( next month). It is indeed, a Remarkable item. It is such a hilarious item, and a great conversation piece. So I would enjoy having it in my home just for that. I also choose to see it as a source of daily inspiration to get on a bike and enjoy some fresh air and exercise.

    It certainly is clever and unique and could work in the right home. Not my home, however. I am not a fan of whimsy, but they do get points for originality.
    Hope you are feeling wonderful, Luciane.
    Best…Victoria

    Just like you, I almost certainly wouldn’t do it in my house, but could see it in a Nantucket cottage or something, where it could be quite affordable!
