|The sink, before we got our dirty little hands on it.|
Well, I can honestly say after over a year of our family (ab)using this sink---we finished it off. We permanently stained it; worked the faucet handle until it swung almost around in a full circle; one of the kids must have napped in it because suddenly it felt quite unstable....you get the picture. I should mention that our laundry room is right off the kitchen, in fact visible from both the den and the kitchen. So when I say that we turned this poor sink into an eyesore, it's not like nobody was ever going to see it. Everybody who entered our house was going to see it.
I started looking at replacements, hoping for something with a little more character or a tiny bit of period flair. I saw many cool sinks such as these:
