rusty sink overflow and drain--salvageable?
I have a tiled-in bathroom sink with a little rust around the drain and overflow opening.
It's getting to the point where we would like to do some minor modifications to the bathroom (add a ventilation fan and replace the window with a door) that will require some expense and effort to maintain the current tile scheme. I would like to KEEP the existing sink/tile/toilet/tub but I want to know if the sink is shot before I do.
You know how it is...if sink goes, the counter has to go (and then the floor and tub surround). And if the sink goes, the matching toilet and tub...ahhh it snowballs.
It's not all that special and it's from the 1950s and not the slightest bit historic. It's even sort of ugly.
But anyway, how can I know if my sink is OK, or at least assure myself it'll hold up in the future? Thanks!
