Everything But The.... Kitchen Sink

This post has been a few months in the making. I didn't have anything to show you until now. You see, I strangely asked for a kitchen sink for Christmas. My current one isn't deep at all which makes it really hard to wash dishes. My big gift was a promise note for a new sink! Yeah! Well, my parents watch a lot of HGTV and my dad dreams big. My sink has morphed into not only granite counter tops but a new faucet as well! What fun!

Last weekend, the whole family went to the granite warehouse on 5th and 45th Street South. To say that it was overwhelming would be an understatement; so much to choose from! My mom and I had very different ideas of what we wanted. She wanted something light... Me, dark. After much discussion, we came to an agreement on one! This picture doesn't exactly do it justice, but it gives you an idea. The cream from the cabinets really makes the cream in the granite pop! There's also specks of blue, which is an interesting and unexpected twist, but fits well and looks pretty.

Today, my mom, dad and I went to Lowe's to shop for sinks and faucets. We found what we wanted almost immediately! The sink is kinda funky, modern-even. I like how they are different sizes. The bigger is 21" long, the shorter is 19", I believe, and both sinks are 9" deep! Stainless steel and 19 gauge, whatever that means.

Our next decision was the faucet. There were sooo many to choose from!! I decided I wanted a "goose" neck, which narrored it down a ton. The sprayer pulls apart from the head and reconnects via a magnet. The little squatty thing on the left is actually a soap dispenser, cute huh?

I'll definitely be updating pictures as this renovation project moves along. I have no idea when it might begin, but I'm already eager to have it all done. I know, we haven't even begun. :)

Yay for you and your spiffy new sink/ countertops! I really like them both. What a nice gift! Mark and I were shopping at Lowe's for a Christmas gift over the weekend, too. Since it is patio furniture for my mom, we decided to wait until closer to spring when it was in stock. I am amazed when I go into that store. I just stand there and say, "Look at all the things you can do!"

Hey Stacey, I haven't seen you around much lately. Has school been keeping you busy? I don't know how you do everything you do, plus be a mommy and wife. You're amazing.

I decided I love Lowe's as well. There are so many neat and wonderful things. I was looking around saying, if I had a ton of money, what would I buy!?
