Rustic Rest room Sink DIY with a Wooden Dough Bowl

When it got here time to slim down our priorities for our latest residence renovation, I knew that I needed to put aside at the very least somewhat price range to makeover our powder lavatory. To be trustworthy, this was one room in the home that I’d semi-neglected via the years – it seemed precisely because it did once we constructed our home over a decade in the past. Which is humorous, as a result of it’s the one room (outdoors of the lounge and kitchen) that each single visitor sees once they come over to our home. Once I thought of it that approach, I noticed it was time to present this tiny room some TLC. Nonetheless, I wanted to maintain my prices low since my price range was already being devoured up by the lounge, bed room, and kitchen initiatives I’d undertaken, so I set my sights on one showpiece that will give me probably the most bang for my buck: a country lavatory sink comprised of an vintage wood dough bowl.

The place do you discover an vintage dough bowl?

A country lavatory sink manufactured from wooden was a kind of design parts that I’d been pinning to my boards, however had by no means really seen in actual life or on the market. Which meant I used to be going to should DIY my very own, regardless of Adam’s misgivings about having a sink made out of wooden (for apparent causes.) I agreed that there was probably so much that might go fallacious with a sink made out of wooden, however I used to be decided to determine it out.

After a little analysis, I noticed that an vintage dough bowl would supply the trough-like form I used to be searching for. One google search will flip up heaps of them on-line, but it surely took me awhile to seek out one which was the proper measurement, form, and shade.

After months of looking for the proper vessel, I lastly discovered it in an unlikely place: Pottery Barn was promoting vintage wood dough bowls in a wide range of massive sizes. And no, these weren’t manufactured to “look” vintage. Each is an precise classic, one-of-a-kind bowls – right here’s the outline from the web site:

Within the first half of the twentieth century, Magyar bakers at farmhouses in Hungary and different Japanese European international locations used these hand-carved wood bowls to make bread every morning. Every is a discovered vintage and subsequently considered one of a form.

I used to be offered. I paid $249 and grabbed the massive measurement from curbside pickup.

However how do you flip an vintage bowl into a country lavatory sink?

Listed here are the steps it took to deliver this venture to life…

  1. We sealed the wooden floor to get it water tight, utilizing these three merchandise: Watco Tung oil (first), Varathane urethane oil based mostly sealant (second), Olympic waterproofing sealant (third.)
  2. Our framer, James Downing (in Austin) put in two metal brackets into the wall that will “cradle” the dough bowl beneath the bottom of every facet.
  3. Initially, we’d deliberate to drill a drain gap proper in the midst of the sink, however as soon as it was mounted to the wall, we observed that every finish of the bowl had a slight dip that will encourage water to pool in these spots. So, we ended up drilling for two drains, one on both sides, so the water may hit the center of the bowl after which drain from every finish. It labored completely.
  4. Subsequent my plumbers got here and put in the p-trap (with two connectors since we had two drains) that related the sink into our plumbing system.
  5. Lastly, the plumbers put in the wall-mounted faucet, which turned out to be far more tough that I’d anticipated. After they drilled into the wall, we found there was a load-bearing stud proper the place the tap wanted to go. After utterly opening up the wall (take a look at my #casacamille spotlight on Instagram Tales), my framer was capable of assess an answer the place he may reduce simply sufficient into the stud to put in the tap with out inflicting any injury.
  6. As soon as the sink and {hardware} have been good to go, my painter got here again, patched the sheetrock and repainted the wall. Phew!

This Leaning Blanket Ladder ended up being the proper place to show fairly turkish towels. I like the bohemian vibe it provides to this area.

I’ve ordered numerous variations of these inexpensive seagrass stomach baskets. I exploit them all through our home for trash bins, soiled garments hampers, and right here, the cutest rest room paper holder that tucks proper beneath the sink. And if there’s something this 12 months of covid has taught us, refill when you can.

How a lot did this rustic lavatory sink DIY value?

As is the case with all DIY’d residence reno initiatives, I discovered some helpful classes I’d consider if I ever do one thing like this once more. For one, simply because the supplies are low-cost, it doesn’t imply your entire venture shall be low-cost. To be able to flip this right into a sink, I had to purchase {hardware}… after which set up required labor from my plumber, framer, and painter. Right here was my value breakdown of your entire venture:

  • Dough bowl: $249
  • {Hardware} (faucet with handles, p-trap, drains): $400
  • Labor (plumber, framer, painter): $1750

All in, I spent about $2,400 on this venture. Was it value it? I believe so – it’s actually a press release piece that makes a significant affect within the room. Nevertheless it was nonetheless much more costly than I’d initially bargained for.

One other lesson I discovered is that it at all times pays to have the plumber take a look at plumbing {hardware} earlier than set up day, if attainable. The preliminary p-trap I’d ordered ended up not being fairly massive sufficient to accommodate stress from the 2 completely different drains, so on the final minute, Adam needed to run buy a wider p-trap that solely got here in stainless-steel, we sprayed it with matte black paint, and it simply barely dried in time for our plumber to put in that day.

The mirror above is such a private favourite, I ordered it for our visitor lavatory, too. It’s easy and clear, however the arch provides it a very attention-grabbing architectural really feel.

The sunshine fixtures on both facet are the Tumwater Sconce from Cedar and Moss. They’re comprised of hand caste stoneware and I like their earthy really feel that blends so seamlessly with our plaster partitions.
