If you recall, I was blogging about the renovations we were undertaking on our Colonial home. However, lesson learned…while you are renovating, working, and living your life, there isn’t a lot of time left to publish it as you go along. Now that we are done with most of the interior renovations, I’m ready to get back to the posting. So, it’s been over a year now and wow, did that go by fast. While doing renovating, time seems to be measured by counting one project to the next and little else. But, I will start again, where I left off. And now I have pictures of the completed projects as we go along! So back to the sinks and the tub.

Here is the doublesink for the kitchen and it’s progression to the final product. If you recall it was found in the basement of the Futuro offices and purchased from the landlord. It is a concrete sink which Jesse was able to refurbish by filling in the existing drain holes and then drilling out the new spots for modern day drains.

The Final touch on the sink is the commercial pot filler faucet and spray unit from Chicago Faucet.

The next refurbished plumbing fixture was the laundry sink, which was originally in the basement of the house. It is a matching single sink to the double sink in the kitchen.

It too was refinished and put into place, this time in the laundry area.

Finally, the clawfoot tub which was purchased at an architectural salvage store. I was able to sand it down, paint it and we were able to find fixtures which work with it.
