Let the Renovations Continue!

After taking a break from fixing-upping, I'm back in the saddle. On Saturday Eric installed our new kitchen faucet. We had been planning to wait until we could buy a new cast iron sink, but decided to go ahead with the faucet when the old one started dripping incessantly. Here's the old one (forgive the dirty dishes, I had just made rolls):

The pull-out sprayer was nice, but I've heard from a couple of different sources that they are well known for not being very durable. Here's the new one.

All of the hardware in the kitchen now matches! Yay!

Next up: Figuring out how to get a huge felt board off the wall in Sawyer's room, priming and painting the walls (I still haven't picked out a color, I'm going to Home Depot to pick up samples right now), and installing new baseboards. When that's done, we can move his furniture and toys in and we will finally have our master bedroom back! It's starting to feel ridiculous having our whole family sleep in one room with three empty bedrooms just sitting there. I have an iron wall hanging that will go above the pantry in the kitchen, and one that goes over the back door. I also have more curtains and rods coming for the family room - I decided we needed them on the windows next to the fireplace too. More befores and afters to come!


  1. That looks way better. You have the same color hardware we do. I really like it. :)

  2. That's a beautiful faucet! And as much as I love love love my retractable, you're right--they're not that durable. We've already gone through 2 in the 7 years we've lived here!

  3. Looks good! And if it gets rid of dirty dishes it is well worth having :)

    Very nice! What are you going to do when all of your fixer upper projects are completed?

  5. Katy, That would be the faucet of my dreams!

    André, I figure by the time I finish everything on my list, the stuff I started with will already be outdated and I'll have to start again. Decorating is a Sisyphean task.


Give it to me straight!
