This fountain takes the cup for being the most creative in this list for us. It is about taking something old and instead of tossing out it is turned into a piece of art.

Pianos get old to the point that it becomes quite impossible to repair them. If you have an old piano, and nothing is broken physically but it has become impossible to even tune. You can either decide to throw it away and have it destroyed completely, or you can give the instrument another purpose.

Fountains are just amazing and they create a form of serenity in a place. Flats or homes with fountain features can be pricey, but it is understandable as they make a home or a place beautiful.
