|I love the old faucet and sink but it was time to go|
This past weekend's project was to simply replace our old original powder room sink with a new one. The shame is that I loved the sink because of it's vintage look but the faucets were leaky and corroding away, the cost to replace just the faucet would have been a ridiculous amount because it would have to be special ordered, so we opted to just replace the whole thing. Well, 3 trips to Home Depot and 5 trips to the local hardware store later, it is finished. It's never easy working with old plumbing, adding new parts and have everything fit just right. I owe my husband big time for sacrificing his whole weekend!

The picture below is of the knobs I put on the cabinet(ignore the screws that I haven't painted black yet). They are old bronze hooks that I had gotten in Germany once(and had forgotten about) one is a pig head and the other a cow. Now the knobs match with the oil rubbed bronze faucet we put in. It's fun to throw in something a little unexpected now and then.
