EcoBuilding Bargains’ Newest Reuse Rockstar!
By Kevin Pink, Marketing and Development Specialist
Allison Wyman stopped into EcoBuilding Bargains looking for a vanity. She didn’t find the vanity she wanted, but what she DID find was pretty special: a bright orange sink.
“Even though it wasn’t practical at all, I fell in love with it and we brought it home,” she said. It’s a story we hear quite often at the store, and it left Allison feeling like she “won the lottery.”
When you buy a bold sink like that, it’s the kind of item you build a room around. The Wymans worked with a local countertop and cabinetry shop to build a custom countertop. This left them with a somewhat unusually-sized piece, so Allison’s husband built a custom cabinet and drawers to fit underneath the sink and countertop.
The bathroom makeover wasn’t finished there, however. They added tile and a light fixture to the wall above the sink.
What’s next? Allison tells us that the next step is to replace the linoleum floor with tiles, for which they plan to return to EcoBuilding Bargains. Fortunately, they are the new owners of an EcoBuilding Bargains gift card as a result of winning the Reuse Rockstar contest!
Watch as Allison and her sons William and Sam tell you more about their project! Congratulations, Wyman family!
