Long time readers might remember the guest bath.
this board is missing the pedestal for the sink, see here
Well, this is not a post about that, but it is a post about the hall bath.
Our hall bath toilet was leaking water from the tank into the bowl continuously, even after we replaced the flapper. So, we picked up this kit from Home Depot, and installed the toilet we had previously purchased for the guest bath. Not too shabby. Altogether it was $169 and one evening* of work.
Combined with the new shower arm & head ($50) we installed a few weeks ago, this begins our hall bathroom’s facelift.
You’ll probably notice, the majority of the fixtures are the same as the guest bath, although we’re going with chrome instead of satin nickel for most things. We’ve already purchased everything except the sink (which we’ve priced, we plan to get the St Thomas Creations Richmond), and our total will be right around $1000. Now it’s just a matter installing things.
Also, Pro Tip: The Metropolitan Chrome Widespread Bathroom Faucet from Overstock is a dead ringer for the Pottery Barn Cole Faucet, but it’s about 60% less. Actually, they’re probably the exact same faucet. The one from Overstock is made by Kingston Brass, and the list price is $289.95. We have the satin nickel version for the guest bath, and it’s pretty amazing. When it arrived Robert was really impressed with the quality (and the price I paid).
* The toilet installation would have gone a lot faster, but the ridiculously old bolts were stuck, so Robert had to cut them off, but the Ryobi batteries for his sawzall were dead, so we watched Futurama while one charged.
