Trough Sinks {+ Colored Powder Coating}

Shiplap Bathroom Kohler Brockway SinksBHG

Many years ago my mom put a really cool deep white sink with a black undercoating in our beach house laundry room. I loved it! Ever since then I’ve had my eye out for an opportunity to use a sink like it.

I think trough style wall hung sinks are so fun in a laundry room or bathroom, don’t you?

One fun little tip I learned in our English Tudor was that you can “powder coat” things such as the underside of wall hung sinks, tubs, and even heat registers, appliances, outdoor furniture or millions of other things to give them a fresh new solid coating to restore it or even just to change the color to suit your decor.

There are so many colors available you can really get creative!

Wall Hung Sink

Even though these sinks may have been new to begin with, they were probably powder coated to be those pretty shades of blues on the undersides.

We took all of our 1930s house boiler wall heat registers to be powder coated when we first moved into that house. They were covered with layers and layers of grime and old paint and I thought they might be beyond hope of being salvaged before we took them in to a local powder coating or auto body type shop. After a brand new powder coat, they were like new (almost better than new)!

A trough sink is definitely on my house goals and dreams list, I can’t imagine a more charming addition to a bathroom or laundry room!

Happy Monday!
