Our new sink!

Last weekend we drove out to Easton, PA to visit my parents, and while we were out in that neck of the woods, we picked up a lovely cast iron bathroom sink that we bought on ebay.


Isn't it great?! It was $25. Can you believe that? We've been looking at a porcelain reproduction that's $400. It has some minor rust and some stains in the basin, but I think those will come out with a little BKF and TLC, and otherwise it's in great shape. This weekend we're going to attempt to install it, as well as this new faucet (Fairfax by Kohler).

what a great deal! very cool :) I really like the faucet too - until we started to consider options I never knew it could be so hard to choose a faucet! We still haven't chosen one, but since we'll probably be ready to start installing the fixtures in a few weeks I guess we better get on that.

Very nice sink and what a bargain! The faucet will also look great with it, I'm sure!

Gret deal! I like the taps. I finally washed out our new/old sink and it was very nice.

Dang it. Everyone is getting a sweet new pedestal sink except for us. 25 bucks is amazing!! Well done.

(Doesn't that sound like the ultimate "old money" name? hee hee.)
