For a while now we have been putting up with a leaky faucet in our kitchen and my husband had tried everything to fix it, but to no avail, it was time for a new faucet. We made a trip to Lowe's this weekend and came back with what I'm trying to tell myself looks like an old pump. I didn't want something too modern looking in my kitchen. DIY projects always lead to everything looking like a mess until it's finished. It also had me throwing out a lot of stuff from under the sink.
Notice the Hot Pink wall under the sink. Someone down the line who lived here before us must have loved the color pink. I've mentioned replacing our pink countertops several times. The problem is, when you own an old house, things come up like wiring, plumbing, furnace noises that sound like ghosts howling, and on and on. Therefore, the things that are noticeable to the eye like countertops, new wood on entry stairs, remodeling the kitchen and bath are put to the back of the list. However, paint is cheap and I am planning on painting those cabinets very soon.
I'm pretty happy with that new faucet! It's actually something noticeable.
