I cant believe this part has taken so long to post even though it has been done for quite some time. After redoing the bathroom floor, my sink and counter were next on the list. let the demolition begin! I think I can safely say that no one likes the look of these shell sinks, especially when painted over like mine was. Yuck right!?
We decided to try and keep the upper cabinets if possible and did our best not to destroy them while taking the sink out. I also worked on painting the cabinets inside and out during the whole process.
We first had to build a top with a layer of plywood and a layer of cement board which let me tell you was a paint to get in. The trim for our closet door is so close to the counter that we had to cut the boards in half in order to get them in. I decided to use a piece of trim for the counter edge that I would paint to match the cabinets. Before laying the tile we first place the sink and faucet and mark the holes that we will drill out of the counter top. Then I laid down my tile and cut each piece to fit.
A little mortar, tile, let dry and then grout.
Now that the tile has been grouted, its finally time to install this beautiful sink that we have pretty much had since we moved into this house 5 years ago. I love, love, love this sink!!!
My bathroom is finally complete! New flooring, counter, sink, lighting and paint. I now love my master bath!
