Day 649's sink inspiration
Remember this vanity? Spotted at Blackberry Farm by Granny Smith Green? And how I thought that I Wes and I could make it?
Here is further proof that it can be done, thanks to a Decorno reader who offered it as an alternative to pricey washstand-style vanities (love those, too). This is the Hollviken sink from Ikea, and a base built and stained by the architect who helped the homeowner with the renovation. I prefer the deeper apron and addition of the stone base on the version at Blackberry Farm, but the basic idea is the same.
For a stone remnant, I'd try a salvage yard. Locally, we have Southeastern Salvage, which specializes in close-out and liquidation building materials. What do you think? Worth the trouble?
