Once again I dismantled what had gone before, which wasn't that big a deal as I hadn't cut anything to size yet, and as you may recall, the old tap was just jammed on top of the pipe and hanging above the sink.
I removed this old tap, lifted the bowl entirely out and attached the new tap. It was interesting - this one was identical to the one which I had ordered for the kitchen - a single lever controlling the flow from one pipe. Unlike the kitchen one however, this one arrived with a small red button on the lever indicating (to me) hot water. The original kitchen one arrived with a blue button. It makes no difference to me, but I guess there are occasions where you may want one or the other. Ordering from China, and with no option to pick, you likely have to take what you can get. It's still a perfect tap for our purposes.
|Mounting the exciting, new tap!|
|Clear silicone along this edge should suffice.|
|Not everyone can claim to have running cola in their pipes!|
|Looking good down here!|
Then I taped off the sink, mirror and acrylic back (side?) splash. With some judicious use of white silicone and a talented index finger, I managed to make it look like it belonged!
|Nice, straight lines!|
|The door will hide the bright orange duff bucket.|
|Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!|
|The hand towel also doubles as a curtain to hide our unmentionables... (Which are actually just Donna's hair care products and equipment, in case you're wondering what's actually there.)|
|A shelf for a glass of water, and a little space for a spare towel. Perfecto!|
