our fancy sink
When our little nephew, Peter, was visiting a few weeks ago, he noticed that we had a “fancy” sink.
No offense, Peter, but I respectfully disagree. Love our on-the-cheap kitchen update… hate our sink. The inside of the sink is stained and is small, which makes handwashing dishes (we don’t have a dishwasher) a bear. And the faucet! Don’t even get me started on the faucet… not only is it ugly and the enamel is starting to come off, but it flings water everywhere and is at the exact wrong height to successfully wash any dishes while expecting to stay dry. Boo!
Given our recent heater/heat pump purchase, though, a faucet and sink is TOTALLY out of this month’s budget. But then! Enter One Project Closer… and… Could it be? ANOTHER contest? This time they’re giving away a Price Pfister faucet, and boy-oh-boy would I like to get my grubby little hands on it.
I’d totally pick the Ashfield faucet in nickel. And it would look smashing. See?
Much better. And while I’m daydreaming about sinks, why not add in a big old farmhouse sink and new countertops?
And, hey! Might as well get rid of the nasty off-white floor tiles that the previous owner glued to the wall in lieu of a backsplash, right? Here’s what a shiny new glass tile backsplash would look like…
Much better! Now THAT is a fancy sink…
