Vintage Farmhouse Sink

March 3rd, 2008

We have a kitchen sink…in our kitchen…installed…

and you can turn it on and water comes out!

Right here in our kitchen!

And we can also wash our hands at the sink and fill up the coffee pot and wash fruits and veggies, and wash dishes, and get wet wash cloths and wipe the table and the countertops and fill up pots and pans and make spaghetti…no wait I can’t make spaghetti. I don’t have a stove. But I could soak spaghetti. I wonder if you soaked spaghetti long enough, would it be the same as cooking it?

And look – the world’s cutest drain strainer thingy. This drain strainer thingy is so cute and so beautifully precious that it makes me feel like a movie star! I never knew a drain strainer could make you feel like a movie star, but I do.

I am going to go get a drink of water now…

from my kitchen sink.

    Dear Rechelle:

    I’ve stumbled upon your blog, and am mesmerized by your sink. Could you tell me: is it new? If, so, who makes it? I am looking for something just like it (cast iron, apron-back, three faucet holes, white) in a single-bowl style. Other questions: is it cast iron? Problems with scratches? Too deep?

    Like many a woman, I’d fantasized about re-doing my kitchen for years. Now that the time is nigh, and I spend hours pacing the Internet looking for help and ideas. I had no idea that there were so many similarly unhinged people out there. If you could find the time to send a reply, I would much appreciate it.

    Thanks for the inspiration, and keep up the good work!
