Refinishing a Youngstown Sink


We rescued this Youngstown sink from a house being torn down.
We rescued this old sink from an old house. I just fell in love with it.
My fiance is the best and sanded the WHOLE thing down for me.
Door fronts sanded down well.
Even the drawer fronts sanded down well.
New coat of paint does a wonder.
Doors are done.
There was a LOT LOT of work on the sink base itself.
Not the best pic but looking good.
He put so much work into the sink. It's amazing.
With the fixtures installed
Even the original 'tag' was saved.
Done and gorgeous!

    What paint did you use and how did you paint it? I have one that’s nearly identical to this one and i’m getting set to restore it. Thanks!

    I have a similar sink that needs to be restored. I can handle the paint (great job, btw), but what about the worn areas on the sink? Is there a way to repair the porcelain?

    Hi there. How did you reattach the sink to the base? I’m finishing up a similar sink and having trouble seeing how it reattaches. Thanks for any help!
