I’m that friend who agonizes over a decision, begs you for your opinion and then chooses something completely different anyway.
Back in November I asked you via Facebook to help me choose between two amazingly priced and awesome looking sinks that I found on Overstock.com. More than 50 of you were happy to help and while there wasn’t a clear majority, most of you went with this one..
Round. I agreed. The round one was the one I was leaning toward all along and for the same reasons.
Most of us loved the square one, too but we decided since the sink would be going on a rectangular cabinet the movement of the round sink would be more complimentary.
But what you didn’t know was, I had already ordered this sink – also around $100 – from Lowes.com (which they no longer carry!). When I first saw it online I knew it was perfect. Then it arrived.
It was the color of fresh baked bread. Not white like it shows. Not white like it said. Not, white like our toilet. So back it went. That’s when the search continued and I employed your help via Facebook.
Then I turned around and ordered this one instead.
You see, because we were converting our old nightstand into a vanity, we were working with very specific dimensions. I thought I had taken those into consideration but just before I clicked that button to purchase, I measured one more time to be sure. I was horrified to realize neither of the two sinks I showed you would work.
So I ordered the one above from Overstock instead.
Then, once that one arrived, I turned right around and re-ordered this one, from Lowes.com, AGAIN. I realize at this point I am a total nut job. But…
I worried the one from Overstock was too white to match our toilet. It was definitely too tall and since our young boys would be using it, I worried it just wouldn’t work out.
Until the one from Lowes.com arrived a second time. And this time I swear it was the color of caramelized onions.
So back it went. Again.
After modifying our nightstand into a proper vanity, this new sink started to grow on me. It did look quite stately. Still too tall but it was the only one, in all my searching, that would work with the dimensions of our new vanity. So it stayed.
I look forward to showing you how we made this sink work for us in our upcoming Guest Bathroom Reveal. It did take some additional work but the custom feel it gives our bathroom was well worth it.

So what do you think? Would you have been stubborn like me and kept the vanity or would you have found your dream sink and then chosen a vanity to fit?
