The NEW Sink!

At LONG last!!  Our friend ROSS is an excellent plumber! He used to be our next door neighbor! How handy is that! We are certainly blessed to have friends we trust doing this work for us! Ross had to do some major repair work to the pipes under the sink and in the basement.  

But he has all the right tools... and a mighty nice smile! What more could a "lady in waiting" for her new sink to be installed ask for!!  

How these guys do this is beyond my comprehension!  I am in awe of the skills and abilities of these guys who do this for a living!  Hard work my friends.... and I found it interesting that they all have cell phones now and can work and talk at the same time! They are trouble shooting and setting up jobs and anwering emergency calls now all the while working on the job at hand.  Times have changed.... 

But my new Ruvati Stainless Steel Sink is now installed and boy am I LOVING it!!  
More photos to follow in another post!
I'm working on restocking my cupboards and trying to find where I put everything while the cupboards were being installed! 
It's been CRAZY!  But I can tell you.... worth all the work and commotion! 
Stay tuned!

  1. It looks beautiful in the kitchen. We have a similar style, but I went with one open sink so i could get the larger pans in. But i miss having a second for peeling and food prep.


  2. Now that is a cool sink! I love the depth.
    So are you going to change your name to Stainless Steel Sink...lol?
    Stay warm, my friend. I bet it's mighty cold where you are. It's -4* here and falling.
    Hugs :)

  3. That's quite the fancy sink. I can see why you're loving it.
    I bet the hook is getting rusty just about now with such a great looking kitchen.

    Thanks for sharing your renovations with us. It's so much work like you said but worth it in the end.

    Hugs for a good weekend.

  4. It's a beauty for sure. Congrats on the lovely new kitchen. That should perk up a depressing long winter

  5. It might not be ORANGE, but it sure is elegant! You are going to have the kitchen to envy when the work is all done. Happy cooking!

  6. GORGEOUS !!!!!! What a great feeling to have a 'new' kitchen to work in.

  7. It's a beauty. So happy for you!

  8. Well, that beauty will surely make washing up more fun! Hope you are staying warm in all this frigid mess!
    Enjoy the weekend...and your lovely new sink!

  9. Great looking sink! And Ross is nice on the eyes too : ) Your kitchen is going to be gorgeous!

  10. {{Only crazy-women get nuts over new sinks!!!}} and yours is FABulous my dear!!!!
    so we are both crazy-women then!! ~
    I love it, so sleek & shiny & new ~ So happy for you! can't wait for more pics to come :)

  11. That's a gorgeous sink! I am one of the above-mentioned crazy women who goes nuts over sinks. So I guess it did not come in orange???

  12. WOW! I love it! I know you are excited and its almost complete. Now you have a beautiful sink with a window. That was the only thing I would not compromise on when we built years ago , a large farm sink with a window.

  13. It is totally wonderful and I am enjoying watching it come together. I feel the same way about repairmen all of the time. Have a lovely weekend.

  14. Love it! So worth the wait. Can't wait to see it all finished. Your going to love the sink racks, I put mine in the dishwasher once a week for a good washing. Hope you get to hooking or designing some new patterns soon.

  15. Cathy, Oh how exciting!!!! Love what I am seeing... I hope you saved the old sink to use as a planter out in the garden? how fun would that be? OLM

  16. Ahhh, orange is replaced by the new black!

  17. Hi Cathy,
    Your new sink is absolutely wonderful!!! Can I come and wash the dishes with you?? I promise to wear my pearls and high heels! lol
    Your new kitchen is going to give your shop some competition for your time, I'll bet!!
    So happy for you!!
    Warm Hugs~

  18. Ohhhh Cathy, I ADORE your new sink and the faucet and the countertop and and and, well just everything I can see!! I'm so happy for you. Stay warm. Hugs, Lori

  19. Gorgeous - but will you be required to change the name of your blog? We've all gotten VERY fond of it! (smile)

  24. Absolutely awesome! Both the sink AND the help! :-)

  25. Thank you for posting the info on your new sink. I'm in the market for a new one and will look at this one closely.

  26. Wow! Things just got really legal in there. Your new sink is definitely a great choice. It's so good looking and neat. You just have to build up the pipes and drains, enough to make them all work well for a long time. Thanks for sharing that! All the best!

  27. Wow, your new sink looks amazing! It’s very stylish and seems very sturdy, which hopefully will help it last for the years to come. Anyway, it’s nice to know that your friend/old neighbor Ross was able to help you out with installing your sink. Thanks for sharing this with us. All the best!

  28. What a beautiful sink! And looks like Ross installed it nicely. You’re lucky to have someone with these minor home improvements. Anyway, I approve your choice of design. The sink complemented the place so well. Thanks for sharing, Cathy!
