"We need a new bathroom faucet!"
This lovely contraption leaks. It's pretty awful, right?
The problem is that the faucet is on a 22 inch deep vanity, which is at least 6 inches too big.
Why would I put a new faucet on a vanity I'd like to trash?
But you see this floor? It's getting in the way of progress. I'd love to buy an inexpensive pedestal sink and plop it in--anything expensive is too big anyway). The floor, though, does not run under that vanity. And you see that crack in the floor? It's reminding me of the fact the floor sags around the enormous beam in the basement. Leveling will have to happen. Plus whenever we replace the tub, we'll need more flooring most likely because the existing apparatus is way too big. So a simple vanity replacement would mean new floors, a new toilet while we're at it, and really, a new tub. Yeah, that ain't happening anytime soon unless we win the lottery (buy me a ticket, will ya?).
So for now, we may or may not replace the vanity. We have, however, purchased a new faucet. It's shiny, therefore I love it. Well, it's not too shiny. It won't leak, though.
