Okay, I haven’t even received it yet (delivery was delayed because of our pesky security gate), but I can’t even tell you how excited I am about receiving my new sink today! And yes, I felt a little silly even writing that.
I know how strange it sounds. It’s just a sink…a material item. Of COURSE I don’t actually LOVE it. And maybe the real issue is that I’m SOOOO excited to get rid of this thing:
I am DONE with two types of sinks: (1) drop in sinks that catch all of the food and grime around the edges, and (2) double-bowl sinks. Oh, that double-bowl thing really gets me. Neither side is actually large enough to wash my largest pot, the right side (the side that’s NOT connected to the garbage disposal) always seems to get food and grime caught in the drain, so I have to fish it out with my HAND and put it in the other side, down the disposal. GROSS!!! I’ve just had it. So I’m very ready to trade it in for this:
Isn’t she beautiful!? (Okay, yes, again I realize how silly I sound.) But I really do like my new undermount, single bowl, stainless steel sink.
Overall, it’s smaller than my current sink, but since it’s just one single bowl, my largest pot will fit in there nicely. At the same time, the overall smaller size will give me a bit more countertop space, and when a kitchen is as small as mine, every single inch counts!! And I love that it’s an undermount, so that there won’t be any dirt and grime getting caught on the top of my new countertops. But the best part–ONE BOWL!! No more scooping out gross stuff from one drain to put down the other. WOOHOO!!
Well, that’s it. That’s the hightlight of my day…just sitting here waiting for the FedEx man. (Don’t I lead an exciting life?!) 🙂
Edit: IT’S HERE!
I ripped into the box as soon as the FedEx man left, and then immediately called the sink-hole-cutting man. He’ll be here tomorrow morning. Wow! I have so much to do before then!! I have to uninstall my sink (boo…I hate doing anything related to plumbing) remove the countertop (I’ve never done that before, so we’ll see if I can figure out how), and then have the new countertop on there with the template before he arrives. Wow! I guess I better step away from the computer and get busy!
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
