Acquisitions II | Trophy, Towels, Photos

We picked up the great old baseball trophy and the '20s photos from the Brooklyn Flea (Fort Greene) and the hemp hand towels (which I hope will feel less like burlap after a wash) at Moon River Chattel. The bathroom project is almost done - minus official running water in the sink (still can't get the old faucet off). The towels may take off the entire epidermis, but they will sure look great.

I love those towels in the trophy. Yes, I think that they will soften up a bit. But they look fabulous just like that--think I'll get out my silver and make a towel bouquet. Have a great week.

If you ever decide to part with the trophy give me a call. Abbott would so love it! Great finds.

Have you tried a basin wrench?

Yep - it works great to get the bendy pipe things off, but the large plastic nuts at the top are just STUCK. I'm still gobsmacked at how someone got 'em on that tight - unless glue was involved.
