A Garden of Roses Painted on the Bathroom Basin

Add a rose garden to your bathroom with one of our hand painted and decorated bathroom sinks with roses in every color. This post features a new version of the Scented Garden, the Heirloom Roses in pink and white, delicate Moss Rose, Eden Roses and of course a Chintz design. All available on our website, decoratedbathroom.com. Our decorated bathroom fixtures are made by hand in the USA and kiln-fired for lasting beauty.

Scented Garden Painted on a Big Rim Drop-in

This is a new version of the Scented Garden we made recently for a customer on the Houzz marketplace. (A great place to get really cool stuff for your home). I should have thought of doing the Scented Garden on this porcelain drop-in basin before, the oversize curved rim really shows off the flowers. Lots of roses in this design, the rest of the flowers include cornflowers, daisies, tulips, poppies, violets, chrysanthemums, iris, morning glory, a hummingbird and butterfly or two, usually a ladybug too, for good luck. It’s what I would describe as a traditional hand-painted sink design. The flowers are painted in a classic Dresden style in many colors with lots of green, blue, pink, red, orange, yellow and purple.

Pink & White Heirloom Roses Painted Porcelain Bath Sink

Garlands of pink and white Heirloom Roses with dusty green leaves and brown vines bring everlasting charm to your bathroom or powder room basin. Shown here on a white fluted St Thomas Antigua drop-in, which we are not using anymore since they started making them in China. We are using wonderful Bates & Bates (which for me, unfortunately just got sold) ceramic basins which are made in the USA in Oxnard, California and perfect in every way!!!! Also looks great on a pedestal or drop-in, check them out on the decoratedbathroom.com website.

Eden Rose Painted on a White Fluted Drop-in

Victorian style roses painted in shades of maroon and yellow on a porcelain drop-in basin.

This design, Eden Rose is rendered in gorgeous muted tones of deep red, magenta, yellow and dusty pink. We can’t get any more of the larger size of these roses but we have plenty of the smaller size and could rework the design with them. I just noticed it’s not on the website, but contact us for details if you are interested in this design, info@decoratedbathroom.com.

Chintz Floral Painted Drop-in Ceramic Basin with Scalloped Edge

Chintz design with roses painted drop-in basin with scalloped edge

Chintz design featuring pink and white roses and a garden of other blossoms in blue and yellow.

Popular and versatile hand-painted style Chintz design looks great in any bathroom! Create a spring garden all year long with pink and white roses, yellow buttercups, light blue forget-me-nots, lots of green leaves and even a butterfly or ladybug are delicately painted in a watercolor style. They look great in any bathroom from a Victorian renovation to a 21st century contemporary. All of the chintz designs can be modified with more or less of the design on the sink or toilet.

Blue Amaranth Traditional Painted Drop-in Sink

Blue and white rose and flowers decorated on a petite fluted drop-in sink.

Blue and white rose and flowers decorated on a petite fluted drop-in sink.

This is the Blue Amaranth design shown on a petite white fluted drop-in basin. It’s inspired by all blue china… Wedgwood, Blue Willow or Blue Delft. If only I knew all those flower names, but I do see big blue roses and a few others, they look like clover blossoms. They are arranged geometrically on the sink to create some order and it gives the design a structured look, traditional or modern.

These are just a few of the hand painted and decorated sinks we make with roses on them. Check out our website for the full collection. Also check our Pinterest Page, we have a board devoted to roses. Thanks for reading. All of our sinks are decorated by hand in Henderson, Nevada and are unique one-of-a-kind creations.

She Sells Sea Shells Painted on Sinks

Seashells look great painted on the sink in a beach or seaside-themed bathroom. In this post we will be featuring two porcelain vessel sinks, a drop-in basin and a pedestal lavatory, all with a variety of sea shells painted on them, some resting on a bed of hand-painted sand.

White Vitra Vessel Sink Painted with Shells and Sand

Sea shells and sand hand painted sand on a white vessel basin.

Sea shells resting on a bed of hand painted sand on a white vessel.

This version is on a very nicely shaped European vessel sink that is higher on both sides and lower on the front and back. A bunch of colorful shells, a starfish, sand dollar and conch with lots of pink, brown and beige highlights are painted on the basin and a beige tone sand texture in the background. Great for the guest bath or powder room in a beach house or condo. Order it here… Seashells Vessel on our website decoratedbathroom.com.

Sea Shells Design on a Kohler Drop-in

This is the same series of shells, arranged into a different design with some on the rim, the Seashells Drop-in. No sand in the background. Most of our designs can be adapted to any installation style as well as modifying the design on the basin.

Colorful Seashells Painted on a Biscuit Vessel Sink

Colorful sea shells with hand painted sand vessel wash basin.

Colorful sea shells with hand painted sand background on a vessel wash basin.

We call this the ‘Colorful Sea Shells’ design because the shells are more colorful. Like that? They are painted in shades of brown and beige, golden yellows, and ochre shades with pink, green, blue and red highlights. This version shows them with the hand-painted sand in the background, but it can be done without it too and would still look great. Check it out on our website here.

Sea Shells Painted Pedestal Sink

Hand painted sea shells design on a white pedestal sink.

The sea shells design on a white traditional pedestal.

Here are the same shells as in the first two examples, this time on a traditional pedestal sink, also with no sand. It’s cheaper. We made a toilet tank lid to match this sink, it exploded in the kiln as you can see below.

Exploded Toilet Tank Lid in Kiln

Broken toilet tank lid in ceramic kiln

Never good news when you open the kiln to this.

We had to order the customer a new tank lid and make it again. It’s surprising how often there are hairline cracks in bathroom fixtures. I try to check very carefully before firing, but sometimes crazy things like this happen. It sucks for me bigtime!!!!

Seashells Design painted on a Kohler Toilet Tank

Here is the Sea Shells Toilet Tank & Lid design painted on a standard white Kohler model, no sand. The shells can be applied to any two-piece toilet tank and lid. You can see some other examples of our hand-painted bathroom toilets in a previous blog post on toilets. We have a few other nautical or beach-themed designs on the website and a few not on there too. We’ve got some lovely ships, fish and dolphins. Contact us for details on those or check out our website for our complete collection of decorated bathroom fixtures made by me, by hand in the USA!!! Thanks for reading.

Custom Gold Orchids Decorated Pedestal Lavatory & Toilet

Ever wondered what a pedestal lavatory with gold orchids and a gold script inspirational saying would look like? This was a project we have been working on since May 2014 and we just finished and shipped it in January. The client had a big budget and wanted something really spectacular for her powder room. The plans where red walls and a gorgeous decorated sink and toilet with the Gold Orchids design and a custom saying, “Jesus, the Living Water”.

Gold Orchids Design Painted on a Fluted Pedestal

Gold orchids on kohler anatole pedestal lavatory painted sink

Gold Orchids design painted on a Kohler Anatole Pedestal Lavatory

The pedestal lavatory we were making this design on was discontinued by American Standard. It was featured in a previous post. The client sourced this very expensive Kohler Anatole pedestal in almond (light beige). I  was glad when nothing broke during firing because that’s a fixture you don’t want to have to order again. It was about $750. The Gold Orchids design fit perfectly with the shape and fluting on the sink and the ‘totally glamorous’ theme of the bathroom interior design. I have sourced a new pedestal in a more reasonable price range for this design, the Barclay Bali, which used to be the St Thomas Barcelona pedestal. Just trying to finish a white one  up for shipping, but I’ll get a few photos first and put it on the site.

Top View of the Bowl with the Gold Orchids & Bands

Top view of the pedestal basin painted with the custom Gold Orchids design.

We created a pattern for the highlights on the gold fluting around the bowl and the base of the pedestal and sent it along for silk-screening with the saying. It looks like all those gold curving bands are the same size, doesn’t it? Of course, they were all different so I needed two each of the three separate shapes. As always, thanks to Sue at SDI Custom Decal in Pennsylvania for doing a beautiful job on the decals. Gold looks gorgeous and fired up perfectly!

 Close Up of the Inspirational Saying on the Bowl

If you are a person of faith, or not, washing your hands in this sink will be an uplifting experience. I have to admit, I love the saying, “Jesus, the Living Water”, it makes you think, then give some thanks!

 Toilet Tank Painted With the Gold Orchids Design


Custom Gold Orchids design painted on a Kohler Toilet Tank & Lid.

The client also chose this Kohler Devonshire toilet tank & lid to match the toilet. It was a good choice as we were able to highlight the fluting with gold bands. I love it on the toilet tank and it was relatively easy to decorate. The pedestal sink was a bit of a challenge, I had to figure it all out.

 Devonshire Tank Lid With Gold Orchids and Bands

custom gold orchids and bands painted on Kohler Toilet Tank

Gold Orchids design highlighted with gold bands painted on the lid of the toilet tank

Here is a better shot of the lid. We wanted to do the bottom of the toilet as well, it’s a long sad story. The toilet bowl was 1/4″ too big to fit in our kilns as it had a large square base at the bottom of the bowl, so we arranged to have our local kiln store fire it. At the end of November they said ok, just bring it in, so early December I called and they said “kilns too busy getting work fired for Christmas”, then they were closed until the New Year. I called, they gave me the runaround for a few days and then informed me the store was closing and they couldn’t do it. Of course, I had already decorated the bottom. I had to take it all off. What a waste of time, money, decals, heartache etc. At least it’s over and really you don’t see too much of the bowl in a powder room, they are usually too small to get a good view of the bottom of the bowl.

We do undertake custom projects, but to be honest I really don’t love doing them. This particular job, I thought I was charging enough, but as usual with a custom job, so many other factors came into play. So, if you want something custom we can do it, but I need to charge more! I do too many ‘act-of-love’ creations! You can check them all out on our website decoratedbathroom.com where we have a great selection of painted bathroom fixtures all kiln-fired and made by hand in the USA. Thanks for reading. Lynne


Floral Scented Garden Design Hand Painted Bath Basins

This is our most popular floral design painted sink, the Scented Garden, in style year after year and available in multiple styles and incarnations. I’ve put this design on vessel sinks, drop-in, under mount, pedestal and on lots of accessories. It’s a Dresden style floral with multitudes of flowers including: tulips, poppies, roses, daisies, violets, chrysanthemums, iris, morning glory, cornflowers and more and a hummingbird, ladybug and butterfly or two! The design is full of beautiful colors and is easily coordinated with any bathroom decor.

Scented Garden with Hummingbird Painted Fluted Drop-in Sink

Scented Garden Floral hand painted bathroom basin

Scented Garden with Hummingbird design painted on a white fluted drop-in basin.

This version is the most frequently ordered of the Scented Garden sinks. I’ve made tons of them!!! It’s on a fluted drop-in and available in a petite or grande size, petite is shown. It’s what I would describe as a traditional hand-painted sink. Check it out with a matching mural and toilet in this blue and white bathroom in a previous post and on the website here, Scented Garden with Hummingbird Hand Painted Sink. Also available without the hummingbird.

Scented Garden Drop-in

Scented Garden Drop-in design includes a hummingbird painted on the sink.

Here is the Scented Garden Drop-in with a little bit different arrangement of the flowers. We are using Kohler Penningtons for our drop-in sinks right now, they are a little bit more substantial l0oking than the one shown here. You can see what it (the Kohler Pennington) looks like a few sinks further down this post. This design also works great on a fluted drop-in, the same base sink that is shown in the top photo.

Scented Garden Vessel Design

Scented garden floral hand painted vessel basin

Scented Garden Vessel design on a white American Standard Vessel Basin.

Here it is with a whole lot less… Scented Garden Vessel Design. Some customers want just a small accent of flowers on their sink and most of our designs can be modified to include less (or more) flowers on the basin. Here is this design modified to fit on a drop-in.

Vessel Design Modified to Fit on a Kohler Pennington Drop-in

This is it. We added more flowers in this version as the rim of the sink really shows off the design. Shipping it out to an interior design in New York. Maybe we will get a photo.

Scented Garden Design on a Small Pedestal Lavatory

Scented Garden design painted on a petite traditional pedestal

Here it is on a petite-sized traditional pedestal lavatory. It’s a small sink, about 14 x 18″ designed to fit into the smallest of powder rooms. If you are looking for small pedestal sinks, Signature Hardware has a great selection. This sink not currently on the web site but we can make you one. Contact us at info@decoratedbathroom.com for details.

Scented Garden Accessories

floral hand painted bathroom accessories

Scented Garden design on a ceramic toilet brush holder, wastebasket and tumbler.

I’ve done tons of accessories as well in this design. From the waste basket, toilet brush holder and bathroom tumbler shown above to towel bars and rings, soap dispensers, switch plate covers, toilet paper dispensers, accent tiles and murals. You can see the mural in the previous post of the Scented Garden bathroom referenced above.

We have a broad selection of floral designs that can be painted on any vitreous china sink or toilet as well as coordinating accessories for all our designs. Our hand-painted bathroom fixtures are made by hand in the USA and fired in big ceramic kilns to permanently fuse the design to the porcelain. It will not wear out or fade away with proper care.

Fancy & Decorative Metallic Border Design Hand Painted Bathroom Basins

15Here are a few elegant border hand painted sinks designed and made by hand in the USA, by guess who else but me. You can check out the complete collection of hand painted bathroom sinks, toilets, tiles and accessories on our website, decoratedbathroom.com. Visit us on Houzz.com, Facebook and of course check out our Pinterest boards. We’ve been working on a certain board, “Bathrooms our sinks would look good in”. When I say we, of course I mean me. There are lots of gorgeous bathrooms, powder rooms, guest baths and master bathroom ideas and suggestions for which one of our sink designs would look good in each interior.

These decorative border designs go great with so many bathroom styles and they add a little extra detail to the sink to make it all a little more special. We’ve made quite a few of this first design lately, the Big Fancy Border. Every sink we put it on it looks fabulous.

Big Fancy Border Design Hand Painted Sink

Add something unique to your bathroom sink with this ornate scroll and stylized leaf border. Available in real metallic gold or platinum, this design adds an elegant touch to a powder room or master bath. Customers love it! Because there is so much gold on the sink, it shines brilliantly and really makes a splash in the bathroom. Coordinates easily with most vanities, granite and marble varieties.

Big Fancy Gold Border Hand Painted Fluted Drop-in

We just made this one recently and as usual the photo doesn’t do it justice. It shines brilliantly with all that gold on it. We got an email from the customer, an interior designer, saying, “I received the sink and it is absolutely gorgeous!” I agree, it was. It’s on a new sink we just started using and they are made in the USA. More, lots more on that in an upcoming blog post. Who needs sinks from China when we can buy better ones here in the USA. Even the name brands, which I won’t mention, are being made in China and the consistency of the quality of production is less than desirable.

This border is a little smaller than the one above and is composed of stylized leaves on stems. It’s the Fancy Gold Border in real gold and coordinates with any countertop and is a sophisticated addition to the vanity in a master bathroom, guest bath or powder room. It looks gorgeous on this fluted drop-in, a popular choice by many customers.

The Fancy Gold Border design on a Kohler Devonshire

Here’s another version of the Fancy Gold Border, this one on a white Kohler Devonshire under mount. What’s nice about that sink is the rolled edge between the two ridges at the top of the basin, where the design is, it fits really well in the space.

Traditional Rope Greek Key Design with Scroll Edge Border

Smaller version of the Greek Key design on a white 17 x 14″ under mount.

This is a true Greek Key motif with a decorative scrolled border. Real metallic gold adds a touch of style to the sink in any bathroom, powder room, guest bath or master bathroom.

You can see the decorative scrolled-edge on the design on the basin in the photo above. As usual, sorry about the photo. I’m getting a photographer over here very soon to give me some help photographing the sinks. It’s quite a challenge.

These are just a few of the decorative border designs we offer, many available in both gold and platinum. Please check out all our decorated bathroom sinks, made in the USA, one at a time, by me and with love on our website decoratedbathroom.com. Thanks for visiting.

Red, white and purple pansies painted on a white vessel sink.

This is one of my favorites of our floral designs. It’s show here on a standard bowl-shaped vessel basin but looks great on an under-mount too. Beautifully painted pansies in a luscious deep red and purple, some in white with orange and lilac highlights. Gorgeous green leaves and gray stems complete the border. What do I love about this Pansy design? The gorgeous colors, you could do so many different paint colors, styles and looks with this sink as the feature of a powder room.

White and Yellow Daisies Painted on a Round White Vessel Sink

daisies hand painted on a white vessel basin

Daisy Design decorated sink. Shown on a 16″ white vessel basin.

White daisies with delicate gray shading, bright yellow centers and green leaves are painted around the inside rim of this bowl-shaped vessel sink. This Daisy sink looks great in a white bathroom, or would coordinate well with a multi-floral interior. I always wanted to do that, one room with 10 different floral designs, couches, pillows, wallpaper, carpet. Would be lovely. Maybe one day…

These are just a few of the designs we make with flowers on them. We have lots and lots more in many different styles with many different kinds of flowers. Please visit our website, decoratedbathroom.com to see what we our complete selection of decorated bathroom fixtures.

Pair of the rope border sinks in an elegant guest bathroom.

Here’s another customer shot, a pair of them on fluted under mounts. Love the faucets, no expense was spared in this bathroom, the customer’s husband let me know! You can tell just by looking. I certainly wouldn’t mind ‘going’ in there. Thanks again to my customers, (who shall remain anonymous) for sending me these photos, they were very nice people and let me know how much they love their sinks.

This Matte & Metallic Gold border creates a sparkling texture on this sink, made with real gold, coordinates with virtually any countertop and is a great addition to the vanity in any bath or powder room. They work well on any shape of basin or lavatory and also fit nicely around a toilet tank or lid. Most of our gold and silver designs look great on any color or sink or toilet. Check it out on the website, Matte & Metallic Gold Border. Here’s a detail of the design, sorry about the photo. I so wish I was a better photographer!

matte and metallic gold border painted sink detail

You can see the subtle texture with the contrast between the matte & metallic gold painted on the sink.

As you can see (kind of) in the photo above, the pattern is made up of shiny blobs with the matte gold as the background. It looks awesome on the Kohler Devonshire, it fits perfectly on the curved area below the rim of the sink and covers over the ugly Kohler logo, which is stamped into the glaze on the sinks. I hate that. I would use more of this sink, except for that.

Big Greek Key-Inspired Hand Painted Vanity Basin

greek key design hand painted porcelain bath basin

Big Greek Key style design in gold painted on a 17 x 14″ under mount lavatory.

This is a twenty-first century interpretation of the ancient Greek Key. This Greek Key(ish) design has lots of gold (or platinum) on it so it really shines brilliantly on the sink. Perfect for so many bathrooms, check out a previous post with this design in a gold and black powder room. Also a great choice for a men’s room or more masculine decor.

Small Painted Sinks for Small Powder Rooms

We often get requests from customers to adapt our hand-painted sink designs to very small sinks for very small bathrooms. Pedestal sinks are a popular choice but what we are featuring in this post are two vessels and a drop-in with some of our popular floral designs. Almost all of our hand-painted sink designs can be adapted to any vitreous china sink or basin in any installation style including vessel, drop in and pedestal. The first is the Chintz design painted onto a little oval drop-in, about 9 x 12″. Tiny!

Chintz Design Painted on a Petite Drop-in Basin

Chintz Floral Design hand painted drop-in sink

Chintz Design on a very petite, 9 x 12″ fireclay drop-in basin.

This was a really cute little sink, they are fun to make. It went to a lady in Canada who had an old house and the downstairs powder room was a converted closet. It was a traditional Victorian renovation and the Chintz design blended well with the style of the home. We purchased the blank sink from another supplier of decorated and hand-painted sinks, Marzi Sink Factory. Their product line is a little different than ours and they actually make all of the sinks themselves and sell them with nothing on them. This little sink has a very hard glaze on it and the flowers really shine.

Victorian Garden with Extra Hummingbirds on a Petite Biscuit Vessel Basin

Small hand painted floral vessel sink

Victorian Garden Design with Tiny Little Hummingbirds on a small biscuit vessel basin.

This sink is teeny-weeny, it’s hard to tell from the photo but it’s the size of a large salad bowl, about 12″ in diameter and biscuit in color. This one went to Japan where everything is very small. We made the customer a matching set of accessories as well, featuring her favorite bouquets accented with numerous hummingbirds, just how she wanted it. The Victorian Garden design includes four bouquets of hand-painted flowers some of which are Bluebells, Lilies, Lily-of-the-Valley, Delphinium, Violets, Honeysuckle, Morning Glory, Daisy, Foxglove, Poppies, Asters, Cyclamen and Sweet William. Colors include deep maroon, purple, gray, gold, pink, blue and lots of different shades of green leaves. This design is very easy to decorate a bathroom around because there are so many colors to choose from.

Since it was a vessel installation, and there was going to be a mirror behind the sink, we decorated all around the outside so that the back can be seen in the reflection of the mirror. Next up in another design on the same sink, this one in white.

Blue & Yellow Iris Flowers Painted Vessel Basin

Iris Flowers painted on a petite porcelain vessel sink.

We normally do the Iris design on an under mount basin, but this customer wanted a small vessel sink instead. The blank sink we use is called a Kiernan Petite Vessel and we obtain them from Signature Hardware. Reliable, good customer service and they have an excellent selection of very small sinks, drop-in, vessels and pedestals, I’m grateful for that!! This one stayed in the USA, it was installed in a Boca Raton powder room in a Country French style.

These are just a few of the small sinks we have made for our happy customers. Please visit our website decoratedbathroom.com to see our complete collection of decorated bathroom fixtures including hand-painted porcelain sinks, toilets, tiles and accessories. Thanks for reading.


Lodge & Cabin Style Bathrooms from Houzz and the Ducks in Flight Painted Sink

It’s amazing how popular our Lodge and Cabin design hand-painted sinks are. Some of the choices include ducks, fish, wolves, moose and deer. Besides the fact that they are really beautiful lithographed images, they add a bit of ‘camp’ charm and a dash of color to an otherwise brown wood bathroom. This post features our Ducks in Flight Design decorated sink and some rustic cabin, fishing camp, lodge-style bathrooms we found on Houzz.

This is one of the most popular of our Lodge design sinks. It’s a subtle addition to any bathroom, not too much on the sink or over-the-top. It’s five ducks, male and female, flying across the bowl in several stages of flight. It’s easy to coordinate to any style of vanity or color combo and pick up the colors in the design with the towels and bathroom accessories.

The ducks are rendered shades of gray, white, brown and beige with beautiful green heads, deep red necks and feet and yellow beaks. Here are three rustic bathrooms (found on Houzz) that the would be even better with some ducks on the sink!

Cabin-Style Family Bathroom with Lots of Wood

This looks like quite a large bathroom with a nice big walk in shower and double sinks in the vanity. I like the contrast between the travertine floor and tile in the shower with the more rustic elements like the wood paneling on the walls, window trim and especially the vanity. It all works together really well, it looks cosy and warm. I love that big tub which looks like a claw-foot. Imagine the smell of the wood when this was first built, it must have been wonderful. The Ducks in Flight design painted on the sinks would be the perfect compliment. I like all the neutral tones, but a little color wouldn’t hurt. Brown and beige aren’t the only interior choices out there… sometimes it feels like they are! Way overused. I’m not a brown-lover. Since childhood I am known for ‘not liking brown’.  I grew up in the 70’s and some of you may remember it was everywhere, with orange, avocado and gold,,,,ugh. Now you know how I feel about brown, here are a few more (brown) bathrooms the Ducks in Flight sink would make even better.

Totally Wood-Paneled Four Piece Bath with Distressed Vanity

I wonder if the vanity is actually an old piece, or a contemporarily distressed one. It works great with all the other wood on the walls, floor and ceiling. The cane-seated chair is a nice touch and ties in with the rest of the decor. I also like the lamp, too many bathrooms don’t have ‘mood’ lighting. A nice bath on a winter evening must be a very calming experience indeed in this bathroom. The Ducks in Flight sink would look great in here, also the Deer and Moose. That design has some distressed elements and they would coordinate with the other distressed pieces in this bathroom.

Mountain Log Home Bathroom with Wood Panel Walls

What I really like about this bathroom is the wood on the walls. It looks like there is a beamed ceiling too. The tile floor matches well and makes sense, after all it is a bathroom. The Ducks in Flight sink would add some color to these sinks. Although we normally create that design on an under mount basin, we can also apply it to a drop-in like the ones shown in this bathroom. Love the bathtub, crank up the hot water, throw in lots of bubble bath and relax. It looks very inviting. The Muskie design would also go well in this bathroom, it would tie in nicely with the vanity and tile backsplash.

That’s it for now. As usual, all of our sinks, toilet, tiles and bathroom accessories are hand-made to your specifications in the USA. We kiln-fire all our fixtures for lasting enjoyment, the designs will not wear out or fade away with proper care. Proper care is just to keep them clean with a soft cloth and to use non-abrasive cleanser. We use the same process on our sinks that is used on kitchen china like plates and mugs so the decoration is on there for the life of the fixture. Thanks for reading and please check out our complete collection of hand-painted sinks at www.decoratedbathroom.com.
