We’re Back!

After a nice break visiting family in Tennessee, we’re back! We enjoyed our time away and time spent with Jarrett’s parents and family, and we even managed to bring back a few great finds. One of those is a huge relief for us after our somewhat regrettable IKEA bathroom sink purchase.

Jarrett’s parents actually live in a beautiful old bungalow as well. Theirs was built in the 20’s, and it’s in Tennessee, so it’s a bit different than ours, but much of the beauty we love in bungalows is the same. They have beautiful old wood trim, handmade solid wood doors, and gleaming hardwoods throughout. They’ve also managed to accrue quite a collection of beautiful home features that are either in disrepair or had to be removed from their home when updates were made. Their loss is our gain! We scored this beautiful old cast iron wall-mount bathroom sink for our basement bathroom update:

It’s a little dirty, but is otherwise in great shape. The porcelain coat is still intact, and the faucets work wonderfully. There’s a bit of rust on the old soap dish (incorporated into the sink!), but it’s nothing a little elbow grease can’t clean up. We’re excited to finally have a solution to our bathroom sink debacle.

  1. I’m glad you got a cute new sink – because the solution I had in mind for Mr. Ikea sink was a bit crazy….
