If you have followed me for any length of time you know that this old house is a work in progress. When something is built almost 200 (!) years ago there are a few things that may need a little fix. We have sanded, stripped and repaired almost every square inch but, believe it or not, there are still places that need work.
We live in a real-life fixer upper; unfortunately there are no crews of people coming in to save the day...we roll up our sleeves and do it ourselves!
I've wanted to update the kitchen since we moved in, but it's been a very slow process. Let's face it -we live on a budget! Our countertops would stay but we were finally going to give this farmhouse kitchen a real farmhouse sink.
So, I began to search for top-quality sinks that would best fit the aesthetic of our farmhouse...
After searching many home improvement stores for a farmhouse sink I found a brand that was very well built and pleasing to the eye from @sinkology. I was also SO excited that this brand could be found in our local Home Depot store! This made the process of viewing and touching the sinks that much easier.
I decided to go with the Brooks/Zuri All-In-One Kit. I loved the look of the sink and the elegance plus functionality of the faucet.
Since we were doing it ourselves, we needed to cut the corian countertops and install the sink. Thank heavens my husband is very handy and a jack-of-all-trades! (He's been commissioned for more than one farmhouse renovation project.😉) He did a ton of research & then started the project.
1. Removal of the built-in sink.
2. Next, the hubby built a bottom support for the sink to sit on.
2. Finally, we were ready to put the sink in place and hook up all the plumbing!
Installation! Getting things polished up.
I want to stress that my husband is NOT a plumber or carpenter but he was able to install the sink and reroute all the plumbing - with a little elbow grease and research, it's a cinch!
It helped that the folks over @sinkology were there with us every step of the way. Their customer service is top notch and the quality and craftsmanship of the product is supreme.
Here is the finished product! I couldn't be happier with how it turned out!
