There isn’t going to be a whole lot of instruction in this post, because it’s not really needed.
To make the vessel sink, we used a serving bowl, a chrome pipe kit (similar to this) and sink drain.
- Buy a serving bowl that you can fit your hands in (you will look silly taking bowls off store shelves and sticking your hands in them—just like I did for several months).
- Drill a hole in the base of the bowl. What you use to cut the hole will depend on the material the bowl is made out of; ours is porcelain, so we used a carbide grit hole saw.
- Attach your pipes and sink drain per the instructions that came with the fittings.
The Hubs did all of the work on this particular project since it really is one person job.
The bowl was from Target, on clearance for $12. The faucet is from IKEA. We had a hard time finding any we liked that were actually made for vessel sinks, and they were quite expensive. So we went to the kitchen faucet department instead and not only did we like the looks better, they were nice and tall and they were cheaper!
If you have any questions about the process, I will certainly pass them on to The Hubs!
