I LOVE It When the Sink Is Not In the Room

Here you are looking at the plumbing connections for a powder room sink. The homeowners have removed the sink so I can work around the plumbing more easily. This makes me happy. šŸ™‚ Even with this stiff and brittle silver cork wallpaper, I was able to manipulate the material neatly behind the escutcheon (round silver plates) and the drain pipe. This is important because this area will be visible, because the homeowners will install a modern-looking sink supported by tubular chrome legs (not the typical wooden vanity).

This area probably took me about 12 minutes. If the sink had been in place, I could have been sitting under it with my scissors and razor blades for the better part of an hour.

Note: The painter was probably not as lucky as I, because, judging from the amount of paint slopped on the metal escutcheons, he most likely was floundering around with his brush under a cramped sink in the dark.

This silver cork wallpaper is by Thibaut Designs, and was bought at a discounted price from Dorota Hartwig at Southwestern Paint on Bissonnet near Kirby. (713) 520-6262 or dorotasouthwestern@hotmail.com. Discuss your project and make an appointment before heading over to see her.
