We wanted to complete this project first, because how the faucets came out and went back in could determine the rest of the project. I posted in our first bathroom makeover about how our vanity top cracked while removing the old faucet. If that happened here, we would have to purchase a new vanity top. Since we have double sinks, that would add a lot of extra $$$ to the cost of the project because the two sink tops are not cheap.
While Mr. Delightful had to break out the sawzall to get the old faucets out, the vanity remained intact and undamaged. He also pulled out a large "Sara furrball" that was lodged in the pipes in the sink on my side. Oops. Guess I won't be brushing my hair over the sink anymore!
Even Emma seems to approve of the new faucets we purchased. We went with these Glacier Bay faucets from Home Depot. You can't beat the price at $25 each and I love the brushed nickel finish.
Here you can see the new faucet on the left compared with the old one on the right. Doesn't it look better already?
