I'm just a bit excited this morning.
I have a new sink in my house!
It really is the little things in life that mean the world to me. You know like that late night phone call from one of the kids just because they were thinking of me. That morning kiss as my husband walks out the door to work.
But a sink?
I'm nuts :)
You see we've been in our home now for just about 6 years. We had a plan to have a sink installed in my workshop so when designing the house we had the "rough in" for that put in. Never did I think it would take this long to get it done.
In my defense I'm busy. I just never found the time. I know I know, lame excuse. BUT I'm so happy now I had to share.
And it only cost me a "barter" :)
I picked up the old cabinet 5 years ago and stripped it down and stained it.
3 years ago I cut the hole and put the wood on..and my hubby made me this amazing sink
2 years ago I tiled it with slate. (free from a friend)
And now...I have it hooked up.
And all I had to do was paint a couple of pieces for a friend.
I did these and her husband who is a plumber installed my sink..and did some more work in my basement bathroom in prep for getting that project done.
Great trade I would say!
Now for some trim!
Happy Thursday for me...and I hope for her as she gets to set up her dining and living room with her refinished furniture.
