vintage-sparkle-laminateHappy St. Patrick’s day all! I’m still hard at work removing grout from my mint green hall bath shower — but this weekend I took a break to swing by my local Habitat for Humanity ReStore and try my luck at finding something cool. Turns out, the luck of the Irish was with me.

However, the white Kohler hudee-rimmed vintage sink is in excellent condition and will be perfect for the hall bathroom.

  1. This is just too awesome, Kate! Imagine if it was all in pristine condition, and you had a place it would fit perfectly! Congrats!

  2. Wow – perhaps if you can find smaller things to utilize it on you can carve up that laminate and work with sections that aren’t damaged and stained.

    As a note – I finally got the courage up and cleaned\regrouted the tile in my bathroom. I posted a blurb about it my blog. It was a bigger job than anticipated, but did not turn into a bottomless pit of work, fortunately…
