The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

Name:
Location: Crow Mountain, Arkansas, United States

Synopsis: This is a cautionary tale. A seriously disturbed couple find the charming, old ruin of a Queen Anne Victorian in Russellville, Arkansas, and buy it for $1.00. They tore the roof off, cut it in half, and had it moved to some land they owned sixteen miles away because they didn't know any better. Since then, they have hired and fired contractors, had all of their tools stolen, re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, and essentially rebuilt the entire house. Their only problem is that after four years it still isn't finished. Now they are tired, broke, and wonder what in the hell it is they've done to themselves. And, it's haunted.

More House Jewelry

I just bought two of these on eBay for the master bathroom.

I know, where will the madness end?!

Including shipping, they will cost $240.00 and they come with the drain (but not the S-trap). Now, all I need to do is find some faucets.

I know, they aren't period et cetera, but that is fine with us. I think the final product will make these little bit of modernity look like they belong. Just give us a little time. . .

Wow! That sink is beyootiful!
Is it glass? Or just a thick glaze?
I'm sure they're going to look great in the house.

They haven't arrived yet, but, according to the description, they ought to be solid glass.

Be sure to check out overstock dot com for faucets. They have some pretty amazing deals. I haven't seen the ones we bought in a while as we are just starting on our loft bath and they are burried somewhere but they were really cool and about 90% off the retail price!

absofreakenlootly amazing sinks. As the Daughter of a man that sold plumbing for twenty plus years, the sinks that have been coming out in the last five years are my favorite next to the classic antiques. Just adds so much originality to a room. Fantastic find.
