Things I have procured:
Porcelain console sink (with utterly unusable legs)
Concealed trapway toilet
Water shut offs
I don’t like the water shut offs I bought. They looked fine online, and were only $80. But in person, I think they are too modern-looking. I got them online at Vintage Tub and Bath.
I am trying to live with them, rather than run off to Restoration Hardware and pay three times as much for the ones I really want.

Actually? I would buy these. You know why? Because I am irrational and need things to be precisely what I had planned. And? I already put them in the master bath and love them.
I got the first set at the RH outlet—for a non-bargain price. But I called them yesterday, and they don’t have any. I was still obsessed with swapping them out, and made the decision to forgo groceries next week in trade. But? When I went to buy them? Restoration Hardware wants me to think $25 for shipping is reasonable. Which it is not—it is aggravating and affected. And it’s enough to make me not want to have anything to with them.
I caved and bought the Restoration Hardware fixtures.
