i *heart* plumbing fixtures

Paige posted a sink that made her heart go pitter-patter… it was this:


Paige, join the club! I had to have it so bad I bought it in gray (that’s a rubber trim around the sides) and navy.  It’s a precious little sink by Alape – a fabulous German plumbing line.  It’s not on their website… I did however find it here!  It is very light-weight – hard to tell by the photos- but it’s just a simple little glazed steel.

Can’t get enough – here she is in navy:


Our gray one  is in the garage and the navy one is going in a bathroom that is still in the works…


And more advice for your renovation – don’t get all tied up in fancy showerheads… the best on the market is the Speakman… pure and simple and great water pressure!

Only way to step it up from a Speakman – is the Double Speakman!

Remember all my ranting and raving about old one room school houses.  Dang sure – here I am again!
