Yes and yes. I don't see why not. Of course, it might take some drywall work behind the pedestal sink. And be sure to carefully cut away any adhesive on the vanity and/or countertop to keep it from breaking, so you can reuse it.
Thank you steve, it is total tile behind vanity
Can you still get the tile, to add behind the pedestal sink?
Tile is still in tact behind vanity.
Absolutely...you might have some cuts through the tile for plumbing....a great updated look is not so much a pedestal but a curved bombay style cabinet. I also saw an awesome 32" custom european style vanity at a thrift store with granite top for $275...it's off Shallowford Rd in Marietta....a steal of a deal
One common problem when adding a pedestal sink to "Old" plumbing work that was originally set for a base cabinet is the supply lines can be too far apart to look good behind a pedestal base. If this is the case some minor drywall and plumbing work can get things looking good. Moving the waste line is sometimes a problem too as this tends to dictate the "placement" of the pedestal. I have seen any small base cabinets where the waste line is not in line with the center line.
The house had an old kind of sink and I had the vanity installed so the pipes and plumbing may well be all ok. the entire areas is tiled PINK of all things. House is older evan still has a green bathtub, I replaced the toilets with high ones a while ago. Should have gotten power flushes tho.
Believe it or not there is a minor "cult community" of pink tile fans
