I’ve never been a big fan of the bathroom faucet supplied by Airstream. With a very low profile, a tall guy like me must complete what feels like a full forward bend simply to wash my face … which drives me crazy. For 16 months I have dealt with this hassle and often made my frustrations clear to anyone listening (i.e. – Kelly).
Likely tired of hearing my whining complains, the other day Kelly suggested we find a replacement unit. Before she could change her mind, I began my search in earnest, scouring the web for ideas.
During the search process, I came across some pictures of a nice looking unit from Ikea. The price ($99) seemed reasonable and I decided to purchase one for myself. Having never placed any online order from Ikea, I was not sure what to expect, but am pleased to confirm that the process was swift and painless. I placed the order Monday and via standard delivery, received the unit Friday.
Earlier today … in less than 30 minutes I unpacked the new faucet, removed the existing unit, cleaned the countertop, and completed the swap.
Put another way, this is a one beer job.
Time will tell if I like the new faucet more than the previous, but I’m very optimistic. If nothing else, the new unit looks much nicer, so I’ve got that going for me.
