I have been searching for a vintage sink for some time now. I finally found one, close by, but the owner wants $850 dollars for it.
Sure is pretty
I cannot do that as that would be about 1/16 th of what I paid for my home. I am resisting the upgrade fever......
I found an adorable substitute, AND it has the advantage of providing 'happy, happy, happy feelings' because it is just like the sink I put in the home we built in South America. IKEA makes a beautiful European style stainless steel sink for a pittance, a mere $202.00. However, it would cost $397.00 in shiping to get it to me. Bummer.
Next I thought, hey, I can get one of these babies:
take it apart, and use the TOP as my counter! These are just $200.00 with FREE shipping on ebay!
I can get my neighbor (who owns the MOST amazing piece of machinery ever invented, A PLASMA CUTTER, to cut the sink hole, and presto: I have the look I want!
SO I asked my self "WHAT do you really want?" and I decided, "The LOOK" would be fine. I thought a little more, and ruminated, and thought. I am going a different route. Yesterday, after reading rave reviews, I ordered 3 cans of this:
I already have primer, and polyurethane sealer, so for $21.00 more, I will have 'The LOOK". Obviously, I am not picky, and I really want to save money to put towards our goal of moving out of the the USA someday with our son. (I want him to experience missionary life, this is important). But I really want a cute intermediate home......
