People have so many ideas.

Way too many.

I have always liked a little powder room surprise. I love a bit of whimsy, however, unless there is another usable sink in that space, the owner should have saved the pail for all that money they burned....k

The least they could have done was center the mirror over the hillbilly white trash sink. (Banjoes dueling in the background......)

Kathy, they didn't burn the money. It went down the drain

Huh. My brain couldn't process that that's a sink. I couldn't figure out exactly what I was looking at. Thankfully, a smarter reader left a comment that clued me in.

The black-and-white malachite-patterned Fornasetti wallpaper is gorgeous. I give them props for thinking outside of the box with the fire bucket sink (don't throw out the baby with the sink water).
Check out the link; their house is actually quite nice. I'd move in.

Well, you know how I feel about that wallpaper, as it's slapped up on the ceiling in our powder room. I adore it to no end.
That said, knowing how much I paid for a single roll, I can't imagine making the rest of the space look like the product of a steampunk dumpster dive.
Cheers, Alcira

It's not like there wasn't room for a proper sink? Heaven forbid an inebriated person use this bathroom. The wallpaper alone...LOL.

LOVE the paper...the fact that this is a sink was completely LOST on me until I read the comments, I thought this was a quirky little prop, for lack of a better word. With the real sink and faucet on a different wall...my brain tends to want to make sense of things that are in fact senseless. AS to the Houz debacle, kinda speechless over that, damn.

Your doctor called, unfortunately your Pap smear came back positive. On the plus side, here's this wallpaper.
