We bought our home almost a year ago, and one of the home improvement projects on our list was a new kitchen sink and faucet. The pipes leaked so we kept plastic containers under the sink to catch the water. It was tolerable at first, so other projects took precedence over the kitchen.
Apparently, the sink got tired of waiting on us to decide when it was ready for a makeover and made the decision for itself last week.
Our stainless steel sink and the pipes underneath died last week from corrosion, rot, and pure gross-ness. As much as I hated the thought of spending the money on a new sink and faucet, I was very much looking forward to getting rid of this:
Mark wasted no time at all getting rid of the sink, faucet, and pipes. We headed to Home Depot and found the faucet I had my heart set on, but they didn’t have the sink (even though their website said they did – boo). We went to Lowe’s and found a sink. Even though it wasn’t the one I initially wanted, I ended up loving it!
Mark spent two days figuring out the plumbing and installing the sink and faucet. This was his first time with any kind of plumbing project and he did a fabulous job! (Let’s just say I was glad this happened during the week Marley was at her dad’s house…because, well, Mark got frustrated a time or two, and…you know, things get said. Yea. You understand.)
Finally, all the pieces were put together and I am very happy to say that we have a brand new sink and faucet in our kitchen!!
