On April 15, 2008 we closed on a 1955 Mid-Century Modern home in Merriam, KS that was custom designed by the late Donald R. Hollis of Hollis + Miller Architects. We will be sharing our journey as we update the house to make it our own, while trying to stay as close to the original design as possible.

Master Bath Sink Begins

Keith from Cretedog came over to make the template for the concrete trough sink.  He also brought 2 color concrete samples (grey and white) and a pamphlet of concrete colors to choose from! 

We purchased the faucets and a pop-up drain.  But when Keith's partner brought a pedestal sink for viewing, I fell in love with the drain he had in there.  The drain top rotates!  It was way cool.  Not only that but the diameter of the pop-up drain I bought was too big, so we decided to go with the rotating drain.

We also decided to go with the grey (aka natural concrete).  Not only did it look classier, but it looks like concrete.  And it would be easier to select tile for the backsplash.  
So with the concrete sample in hand, we went to the Tile and Stone Warehouse, The Tile Shop, Lowe's, and Home Depot.  LD fell in LOVE with some tile from Vogue Bay, but it was toooooo expensive, even for a backsplash.  So I told her we had to find something in our budget.  We have looked at so many tiles in the past, but it helped to have the concrete sample in hand.  Well, we finally found some tile that was perfect for the space.

We also purchased a couple of the Vega faucets by Price Pfister in the satin nickel finish.  The style has been discontinued, but we found some on ebay.
It will take about 3 weeks to get the trough sink, so stay tuned for more of the process.  We will be taking pics when Keith makes the forms.
