Salvaged Beauty

From Amazing Grace, This Old House magazine, July/August 1998

It's so rare in residential bathrooms to see magnificent slabs like these, salvaged from an old office building, mounted on the walls like wainscoting from a 1920's bank. A salvaged pair of porcelain bathtub sinks perched on shiny chrome legs brighten the gray stone and dark wood floors. Both sinks have no-handled, foot-operated faucets, a brilliant idea that minimizes cleaning. I'd lose the stainless dental supply cabinet, however; it hides too much of the marble.
