I recently posted about my Kitchen Backsplash Re-Do. Today was part 2! We had a plumber (luckily) pull out our old sink and install our new sink, faucet, garbage disposal and water filter with some minor modifications. We also had him replace our 35-year old leaky exterior water spigot. All good now! He was able to pull the old sink without damaging the counter, hurray! He put in the new, HEAVY, deeper, shiny sink and added all the components. I LOVE it! The old almond sink was pretty old and the new white one is really BRIGHT! It's a Kohler Brookfield cast iron model sink. A friend dropped by and remarked how, looking into the kitchen, with the new white back splash and sink, it was lighter! Yes indeed.
Old sink and faucet, way too high
New sink in, and adding components
Ooo, ahhh, all caulked
I love the new stainless steel faucet I chose, a Moen Walden, smaller, low profile, cheaper & will do the job! We also added a soap dispenser and replaced our under counter water filter. All done! I donated the old sink to the Habitat store as it's still usable...
More Record-Breaking Heat-
Triple digits pretty much the whole last week. It is just so HOT for the garden, yard and chickens. We been watering some section daily and rotating the areas. It's 97 right now at 8:30 p.m. Ugh, I hope you're staying cool! The hens have been getting lots of cool treats and I'm using the mister too. The GOOD news- I picked my first 2 ripe tomatoes yesterday, 2 Lemon Boys, so tasty. I have NEVER harvested this early, but with the mild spring, and really early summer-like weather I planted early. My basil is huge too, ready for pesto making!
