Home Improvement Project No.1

I sometimes feel bad for the kitchen sink. When people pack up all of their belongings, what do they always leave? Yep, "everything but the kitchen sink".  Poor thing.  Today we are going to give the kitchen sink some much deserved attention.  

Here's the oldie. Not old, I guess I should say former.  We didn't want to pay the builder for an upgraded sink when we knew it is something we could do on our own.

I didn't get a before shot with it in the island because I was trying to get Miss Mira to fall asleep for an hour and a half.  We're trying to say goodbye to the bink and it's not going well.  She is extremely strong willed and had a 90 min tantrum last night as well as one this morning at 5a.m.  "I just want my binky Mom, my orange binky"....{{cry, cry, cry.....SCREAM!!! Throw yourself down on the floor and repeat}}.  

I'm getting sidetracked. 


 I would have guessed that the sink wouldn't fit because it looks so much larger than the other one.

It fits!! I LOVE it!!

Miss Mira is sitting on my lap. When this picture came on screen she said,"Oh, it's so PRETTY!" 
Funny that a 2 yr. old would think so, but I agree!!


  1. That's gorgeous!!! I have been wanting to do that FOREVER!!!! Was it really as easy as it looks!! :)
