Six out of Ten Ain't Bad!

Well, it's Monday morning and I'm off to a slow start, but since I accomplished so much over the weekend, I'll cut myself some slack.

The carpenter will be working in the kitchen for a good portion of the day. He's fitting the cabinets for our new sink and dishwasher. After a chat with the countertop fabricator, we decided it would be much easier to install a dishwasher now rather than after the granite (or did we go with soapstone? Oh the suspense!) is installed. It's a little scary when you go over budget on a project like this, and we are with the dishwasher addition. But how nice is it going to be to not have to do dishes by hand three times a day?! I've never had a dishwasher, except for one year when I lived in a fancy apartment in Atlanta and for 3 months in the not-so-fancy rental here in Milwaukee, so I feel like I'm really moving up in the world.

As for my to-do list, well, I'm kind of impressed with myself. To be honest, I only finished one of two headboards and I haven't actually mailed the thank you notes, but they are stamped and ready to go. And the picture I centered is a little too high, but oh well. Surprisingly, I never got around to watching how-to tile videos on YouTube, which was supposed to be the easy task. 

Well, Happy Monday to all, unless you're a Brewers fan, in which case you're probably not so happy today.

We have someone working at our house too and the smell of paint is making me sick.

Whatever stone you choose make sure it doesn't easily stain! I have to bleach our counters almost every week. How bad for the environment is that!

What did you go with? Marble?

You can buy a sink that is already integrated with a countertop, mostly in the same color or a complementary design. These types are easily scratched but are easily repaired as well. The bad side is if you’re tired of the sink, you’ll have to remove the whole countertop.

Hi Charice. That is something we looked into with the soapstone. In the end, we decided to go with a separate cast iron farm sink.
