Hi everyone! Well, I am back from my mini vacation to Sunriver, Oregon. What a wonderful place and a fabulous time we had with our friends!! So good to take a break from the hectic remodeling!!
I do have some remodeling updates. The backsplashes were installed yesterday and they turned out GREAT! We toyed around with the idea of doing a tile backsplash, but after many hours standing in front of tile samples, I decided to go with the quartz countertop material. See? Clean and simple.
Deerfield sink by Kohler. I am in LOVE with this sink, but I ran into a major problem. It is TOO DEEP! Yep! Here is the story. My only frame of reference for a sink is the Top Mount kind. So, when I was measuring and ordering my sink, I thought a 9" depth would be perfect. I NEVER accounted for the UNDERmount dropping the sink bottom by another 1.5". So, the bottom of my sink is now almost 12" from the countertop. Uhhhh, I can't touch the bottom without seriously bending over.
So, after a good cry and many hours of dispair and panic (yes, a remodel can do that to a person), I ordered the bottom basin rack (shown in the left bowl). It does make a slight difference and I went ahead and ordered one for the other side. Make lemonade, right?!?
sponge holder thing? Totally cute and inexpensive, but it REALLY makes me happy. No more sponge just hanging out on the countertop. Yeah!! Oh and another fun thing, my garbage disposal on/off switch is now a push button above the sink -no more stretching to reach the wall switch!!
Well, that's it for now. Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for some cards in the next few days!
