What started out as a simple task of replacing a bathroom sink has become a task of many sub tasks. First, it isn't easy replacing a silver grey bathroom sink without a large price tag. But luckily while we were away, we were able to obtain a grey sink at a reasonable amount. Yesterday morning, we decided to go ahead with the replacement only to find out, that it wasn't the same shape as the original, so a new counter would be in order. Off to the hardware store and after much discussion, a black slate counter was decided on.
Now, a very vertically challenged person had put in the bathroom originally, so when you were brushing your teeth etc, you would have to bend over to get closer to the sink. So seeing we were installing a new counter, we may as well raise it at the same time. It took most of the day but here is the semi final result.
I say "semi final" because we still have to;
1) Put on the iron on side piece
2) Get a new mirror
3) New curtains
4) Using caulking on the edges
5) Paint the new piece of wood to raise the counter
6) Paint the bathroom
7) Finish decluttering the drawers etc.
The moral of the story is there is no such thing as a simple job when it comes to home renovations!
