Kitchen faucet ousted from bathroom...

Very exciting news, our one bathroom no longer has a kitchen sink and sprayer... 

Before:
Here is it the bathroom sink with the kitchen faucet.  Unfortunately the arc of the faucet causes a lot of spraying and splashing.  Also the sprayer nozzle does not work.
The sink is an interesting shape.  I think it may have come from the kitchen (there is evidence of a remodel in that room).  Some think beauty-parlor (although there is no neck rest)...some think it would make a good sink for bathing an infant.

I have no issue with the sink.  Just the faucet.  And the cabinet...and the stenciling...


Bup and his side-kick

Here is a photo of "during" where you can see my wonderful plumber (aka Dad) and his side-kick doing some serious work.  Note the matching sweaters (hmmm....). 

We cleaned a lot of guck out of the drain.  Rory really enjoyed the sprayer nozzle.  It made a nice small gun and even squirted water at times.  Such fun.  He kept it trained on Bup to make sure he stayed on task... 

The job went surprisingly well - only two gliches (really!  only two!).  We found out one of the pipes by the trap is undersized.  Dad got a little wet with that discovery when the trap came off in his hand.  We also added a soap dispenser where the sprayer was, but need to sawzall a board to attach the soap bottle...




After:
Ahhh...now doesn't that look better?  Almost like an actual bathroom sink!!!
