  Converting a dry sink to a wet sink
Converting a dry sink to a wet sink Sign In/Join 
Picture of Snow White
I've just taken on a very ambitious project. Found a dry sink that has a copper tray insert. I would love to put a vessel sink in there and use it in the bathroom. If anyone has ever done this before, please advise. Would you just take out the copper insert and have a custom vanity top made that includes a sink? How much extra work would it be to leave the copper tray insert (cleaning)? if we did get a vessel sink?

You can always do a whole new top but I like the idea of usng the sink as is and adding a vellel sink... you'd have a contrast of old and new...
I have copper in various places around the house.. I acid washed some, fired some and just broke the seal on others ... all grand & I made playdo the other day and did used cookie cutters... did you know that the salt and oil in (home made) playdo will change copper... I didn't... I also have copper vessel sinks...
Think about the sink you want... how wold it look nestled in that old dry sink on copper or is it better suited for a more traditional setting...
