There hasn’t been a sink in this bathroom since this happened. Yes July 2009!
Well the sink I ordered for the downstairs bathroom arrived. But there needed to be some plumbing done to the drain pipe as I chose a sink that would fit against the wall and not have the door hit it. I suppose if I placed it where the old sink was and not have the door open all the way I could have bypassed need to cut and reset these pipes.
However that is not what I did. After searching for a sink at the local hardware stores and a used housewares place none were perfect. I wanted a sink that was narrow as the room is small, a base that was open on the side so I didn’t have to cut it and since I was going all fancy by fitting it in the room all proper like it might as well look nice.
I got the faucet at Lowes. Matching the shape of the fixtures to the shape of the sink and the finish to the rest of the items in the room.
Yesterday a plumber I found on Craigslist came and fixed the pipes and installed the faucet. Dale was home when all of this happened as I was at work. (On a side bonus note, someone else came by and bought my fooseball table for about the same amount as the plumber)
Tonight the matching mirror I got with the sink and the towel racks I bought ages ago for this bathroom go up. I will post another picture later but isn’t this a gorgeous sink.
