New Sink!

Before:
The new sink is in and it looks fabulous! What better way to spend the evening when temps. are around -40* outside (yup, I said negative!!) We took Logan over to my Mom & Dad's for a couple of hours tonight so that Mike & I could work on the sink. OK - Mike mainly worked on the sink BUT while he was doing that I did manage to get the walls prepped and ready to be painted. We did have to run to Lowe's to buy a couple more supplies and once we got the old sink out we realized we did not want to put the boring faucet back in. So we now have a brank new sink and new faucet. I cannot wait until the kitchen/dining room area are finished - it is going to look completely different!
After
Notice how the old sink I was able to put a cookie sheet and a wok in there and it was full? The new sink will give me 2" more in depth! Doing dishes actually sounds like fun right now!

That is really pretty, and definitely brightens up your kitchen!

I do have to warn you about one thing... we have a sink like that. We've found that enamel sinks just seem to have a taller lip all the way around them. If you use a dry rack, it won't drain properly, unless you stack it up somehow until it's at the new level of your sink edge. We use a couple of old cutting boards - although once or twice I've seen products specifically designed for it.

Someday I'd like to have one of the sinks that are sort of recessed, mounted under the counter, and a granite countertop to surround it.

Anyway, enjoy your new sink - and your new wallpaper!

IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII'M SOOOOOOOOOO JEALOUS!!! I would LOVE a new sink! I need to look again--but not before getting some tissues to collect the drool, haha. :D

I was thinking about you yesterday, trying to think why... something to do with the pregnancy, wondering how you were feeling--that's the general reason. And then there was something else. *think, think* I'm not coming up with it.

Anyway--I love the pictures of the house as it's coming along. Keep 'em coming! :D I especially can't wait to see Logan's room all decked out! :D
