I'm not sure if this idea is pure genius or an accident/leak waiting to happen. (Let me know in the comments, please.) A renter had a sad little sink with no personality, so he/she decided to cover it with a piece of plywood cut to fit over the entire top of the cabinet, sink and all, and then fixed (glued?) 12" x 12" over the plywood. No mention of drilling/nipping a hole in the plywood/tile, but I'm assuming that's what she/he did.
Then, a stainless steel bowl was glued/caulked into place. Another hole would have had to been drilled through the bowl for drainage, of course. The original faucet was removed and then replaced for something that would work with the new vessel sink. No mention about the possibility of the top shifting. I'm assuming the new faucet helps keep it in place. As for where the water goes, that would be in the sink below, which, it appears, won't be cleaned until the renter moves out and dismantles the cover. So, is this rental sink cover genius or what??
