When Kriste and I were out shopping a few weeks ago, she pointed out this amazing dry sink, buried under at least two other pieces of furniture.
“That’s basically my dream sink for a room I don’t have.”
“Well, let’s turn over that tag and see what we’re dealing with.”
The price was surprisingly low. I later learned, after I asked to buy it and it was un-buried, that the bottom needs to be rebuilt. It’s sketchy to say the least. It did have furniture stacked on top of it, so it was clearly otherwise structurally sound and it’s a easy fix, so I bought it despite the imperfections.
We still need to fix the bottom, but we got it cleaned up and it’s looking good.
The cool thing about this piece is that it can be used as a dry sink or it can be plumbed by connecting a drain and installing a wall-mount faucet. Maybe even two, because it’s a huge double sink. It runs the full length and width of the cabinet and is about 9″ deep. You could ignore dishes for days in this sink!
I love the little latches and I’m leaving the paint as-is. It’s got some great crackling and patina, but it’s not flaking and chipping off.
It’s so tempting to keep this piece for my future free-standing kitchen, but it’s going to go to the Lucketts Spring Market to be sold. That’s not until May, though, so I get to love on it for a little while before I send it off to a new home.
Did you notice this linen tea towel? I bought two of them and I am so in love with the weave and monograms. Some linens just speak my language. You know what I mean?
They will most likely become pillow covers in the near future.
And, did you notice the stool cover in the first picture?
I have some very exciting news about that little stool cover that I’ll share on Monday…
