Thank you Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting Met Monday today!
I'm sharing another part of our kitchen remodel:
The farmhouse sink.
We bought the sink from IKEA for $300. We drove to Charlotte to get it and also bought solid oak countertops while we were there.
Before: The pennisula had just been removed from the left side of the old sink and old countertop area.
Old and tired!
The new sink. We had to modify the existing cabinet. We cut off the top portion of the cabinet where the false drawer fronts were so the sink could be recessed. We built supports inside the cabinet to support the sink weight, which if I remember correctly was 100 lbs on it's own, add a couple gallons of water and you'll need some extra support!
Side view. We put the new dishwasher here...it was on the right side of the sink before beside the stove and I wanted to seperate the two appliances.
The new dishwasher and oak countertops where the penninsula used to be.
I love the width and depth of this sink.
It has been awesome!
And I shouldn't tell,
but I spent as much on the faucet as I did on the sink,
cherry on top-LOL!
Primping the sink for it's close-up!
Life is good!
Thank you for visiting me in my new and improved kitchen-come again soon!
I'm off to be inspired by all of the Met Monday posts today!
