Trough Sink


When we first renovated the children's bathroom we installed a trough sink with two faucets.  I'd seen a similar sink in a magazine and thought it was a brilliant idea for a shared bathroom.  Of course, I also loved the look of it!  However, I was unsure how the reality of the sink would play out and whether or not the sink would be as fabulous as I thought.  I'm happy to report that the sink has lived up to all my expectations!  The children love having their "own" side and I love that it's easy to use.  

Recently, I changed the wallpaper in the bathroom (pictures tomorrow!) and I also painted the underside of the sink.  The original sink came with a matte black underside, and I've been hesitant to paint it (sort of how I'm always hesitant to paint brick!?!).  


 But paint it I did and I love how it turned out.  It makes the sink look fresh and happy.

  4. The sink is by Kohler and is called Brockway. Here is the link to it on Home Depots website: http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?productId=100017098&storeId=10051&langId=-1&catalogId=10053&ci_sku=100017098&ci_kw={keyword}&kwd={keyword}&cm_mmc=shopping-_-googleads-_-pla-_-100017098&ci_gpa=pla

  7. Where did you get the faucets? We are going to order the trough sink, but were somewhat dissappointed in the appearance to the faucets that go with it. We'd love to get some like yours!!!

  8. Hello Pegk- We got the faucet online. I didn't care for the finish on the kohler faucet- it was too industrial for me. This faucet is by Chicago Faucets (I believe it is the 225-261CP). Definitely do a google search because the prices can really vary. Also, when we purchased they were offering different handle styles and that's how we got the white with lettering. Hopefully, they still do because I think it's charming!

  10. I used Benjamin Moore flat pait for the sink. It was just regular paint and it's done great! Hope that helps!

  13. Hi there! I realize this is kind of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does managing a well-established website such as yours require a lot of work?

    I'm completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I can share my
    personal experience and thoughts online. Please let me know

  22. I just love this bathroom! Bravo! I am interested in getting the faucets you have can you please tell me where you got them? I understand they are Chicago Faucet but I cannot find the lever you have with the HOT and Cold.
    Maybe I can order them from the same place you did? Any help is much appreciated!
    Thank you!

  23. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you about the faucet handles. It appears, unfortunately, that they no longer have the option of those handles. When I bought the faucet I could choose the handles (they had three options). I did a search and couldn't find the handles but I would certainly call Chicago Faucet and ask if they still make them.
