In the last two weeks we have made some small but major changes in our kitchen. The last time we did work on our kitchen was when we painted our cabinets white – such a big project with such a big impact!
There are always projects and ideas running through my head when it comes to our starter home. I have such a hard time deciding which project to start on first which usually results in me just sitting on my ideas afraid to pull the trigger. Well, in September, I pulled a trigger – without talking to my husband first – and this project was for him. Oops!
And a few days later, this showed up on our front porch!
Our brand new sink!
The timing of its arrival wasn’t great since Mike had youth events and retreats on the horizon along with tennis. This project was for him and would require at least a day of dedicated time. So the box sat in our living room. And we tripped over it and kicked it and shoved it when we needed to open the front door….
THEN last week when I stayed at my parents for an evening to babysit, he surprised me by installing it! Unfortunately, it didn’t come easy and he sprouted some gray hairs because of it but a few days later we had running water and a beautiful new sink and faucet (thanks mom and dad)!
It’s beautiful! And it’s deep! I love it so so much. And I’m so grateful for the gray hairs on my husbands head.
We also (finally) added knobs and pulls to the cabinets and added over cabinet lighting. These two things were impulse purchases for me. I had picked out hardware months ago but didn’t want to spend the $75. I had some Menards rebates saved up though and decided to just go for it.
Each small change has made such a big impact and I’m happy to be doing dishes with a new sparkly faucet, in a deep sink, and to now be able to open our doors and drawers without leaving fingerprints on our pretty white paint. All is good in the Jaderston household!
