The wall color is Benjamin Moore Fairfield Taupe. Depending on the light it takes on hues of grey or brown.

Live Slab width and depth dimension sizing advice - What would be a good depth from the wall and thickness size to seek in a live slab for a powder room 44" wide? Also do you recommend faucet holes in the slab, as pictured here? Is there any problem with wall mounted faucets through the poplar bark? In our case a mirror will be hung on it as well. Thank you.

Thanks! And for your continued responsiveness to questions!

What faucet was used with this Native Trails Mandala sink? The fit looks tight yet provides the needed faucet height to scale the upper vessel sink lip. Is there a recommended distance for faucet and sink installation when both sit on the slab? Or, if wall-mounted, a recommended height above the vessel sink lip or drain?

What type of wood is this slab? With what is it treated to keep it water resistant?

Is this slab mounted approximately 32" from the floor at its top side?

What price range should one expect when considering a slab of this size?

I believe this was a Danze faucet, though I'm not sure they still offer the style. The spout sits about 8" high, so I think 8-10" from counter top to spout allows clearance for easy of use without enough force to splash.

This is a Maple slab finished with satin polyurethane and mounted at 34". I would expect to pay around $300 for a slab of this size and species.

Thank you for the nice compliment Autumn!

Hello mrsvdub,

This sink is similar to our Maestro Mandala, and we have several other styles of vessel, undermount, and universal mount sinks.

You can purchase our products at fine kitchen and bath showrooms; please visit our website to find a showroom near you.

Happy Houzzing!

Kim - you can achieve this rather easily through a company called Bark House. This is a poplar bark panel, standard grade (roughly 3/4 inches thick) that we sourced from Bark House. It's size here is 42" wide by 108" tall; however they have sizes smaller and larger than that available. Hope this helps!

I need some ideas on how to support a 2" live edge cherry plank. - It will run wall to wall the length of the powder room (80") I'm using a copper vessel sink. I'd prefer not to use front legs but will if that's best. Thank you so much for your help. Love Houzz!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

More Bark House bark made its way indoors, in this case as a 4- by 9-foot panel on the wall of the half bath. A live-edge slab serves as the vanity.
