Refinished sink & wallpaper.
After six long weeks of waiting, our refinished cast iron corner sink and clawfoot tub were finally delivered to us! (You can see a before picture of the sink here, but that photo hides how bad it really was.) The sink looks amazing. Unfortunately, the tub had a few flaws in the new finish (that’s bad—any entry point for water will quickly lead to rusting), so the powder coating guys had to haul it back to their shop again. This, of course, was only discovered after they had hauled it up to the second floor of the house. (Don’t get me started.) Cross your fingers that it will be back to us by Wednesday, because the plumbers are coming to finish (!!) the job on Thursday and Friday.
The Bindweed wallpaper I ordered from Ferm Living also arrived, and it is even more beautiful in person than I imagined it would be. The white areas match the wall color in the bathroom perfectly, and the gray tones pick up on the color of the veining in the marble floor tiles. I’m so excited to put it up, but I have to wait until the electric work is completed.
We had day-long period of horror after we discovered that the handle escutcheons for the new faucet we ordered are TOO BIG for our weird, special-needs sink. Uh-oh! I was able to place a rush order from Vintage Tub this morning, though, so the replacement should be here by tomorrow or the next day (again, cross your fingers for me!).
