As you may be aware,
I have been wanting and looking for a Butler/Apron sink for
ever some time now
and everything I have looked at has been in the price range of ridiculous proprotions.
So, as I do, I went on a price hunt.
This meant finding something that was within normal peoples price renovation price ranges
and not sacrifice on quality
...my work was cut out.
Here is what I found.....
there is a company that imports Fireclay/Belfast/Apron sinks
(for this post I will call it a Belfast sink, cause that's what I call it)
and they have a wonderful range of these babies ready to go to anywhere in Australia
and for reasonable prices.
I'm loving the Butler sink above.
the range is very good.
This fluted one is lovely.
In most designs there is a single and double option and different size/depth options to suit many bench sizes.
Amanda, who I spoke to from the company, was so sweet and lovely to deal with too.
Amanda sent me the full catalogue which includes claw foot baths, taps, shower sets....
and when I got them, they were on sale!!!
I instantly fell in love with this Laundry tub.
It reminded me of School days, washing out screen print inks off screens and clay and paint from my hands.
My friend and fellow art buddy, Mel and I would make up funny songs about the teacher here!
Off topic for a second. My new workroom has taps installed for a new wash up/laundry tub and I would love one of these. (Hope you are reading this Mic).
So, will I be getting one? Probably not.
I don't think Mic is as enthusiastic as I am for me to get a new sink as this would mean we would need to get new bench tops to fit it in etc....boo hoo =0(
So, now my focus is on the new bathroom and workspace renovations...
I still hold secret hopes of a Belfast sink magically appearing on my bench top soon
I found these babies on ebay and was thinking of them in the bathroom.
What do you think?
a better picture.
I would love to get an old sideboard and have an above counter, mounted bowl basin with these behind.
It would then have that 'wash stand' feel which suits our 'Old Lady' (our home) so
Here is a picture of our current Bathroom sink.
Not ugly, not beautiful
but in need of something new.
The cupboard, my Dad whipped up as a 'time being' thing and what was there before this was pitiful.
I would love to hear your thoughts on the taps and I
will keep you updated on the bathroom progress.
Our new exhaust and light fitting goes in tomorrow
so we have made a start which is fabulous.
