I went searching on the web to find a replacement sink. After looking at hundreds and hundreds of sinks and vanities I came across one I loved. It is called Catania Modern Bathroom Pedestal Sink. And it was on Sale for only $699.99 (regular price $2,450.00).
If we bought the sink it would mean a complete re-do of our bathroom – out with the plain toilet – it would not look good next to this modern sculpture. The walls would have to be refinished after tearing out our old 1925 Kohler wall hung sink. New chrome fixtures would be needed, too.
But what about our old claw-foot tub? I didn’t want to give that up. Cast iron tubs hold their heat and I’ve had many a long soak in that comfortable, long tub. We have an on demand water heater so we can run hot water for hours on end.
Of course, on the third day of frantic work on our sink, the clog disintegrated and everything started flowing again. No new sink is necessary so there will not be a bathroom makeover around here.
