New kitchen sink.

One more project crossed off the to do list!
The kitchen sink.
I forgot to take a picture of the black acrylic sink that was in me, it was a scratched up mess!

The new one is porcelain, and large enough to bathe a baby in!
LOVE it!

Home Goods, and TJ Maxx carries the neat glass soap, and dish soap bottles that I really like.
The lavender dish soap is the best!

Hobby Lobby carries some nice decorative pieces, and I found the one we put on the front of the cupboard there.
I plan to fill in between the faux brick with mortar before warm project on the to do list.
We are crossing things off the list as we go.
Hopefully we will be finished before warm weather is here to stay.
Have a great weekend!


  1. It looks great! I have a farmhouse sink in my garage waiting to be installed. Now that I see yours, I can't wait to get mine in too. Love your soap dispenser too! Happy First day of Spring!!!

    Big Texas Hugs,

  2. Debbie, I love your new big sink. I need a new sink and faucets so badly. I want new counters . I like the old counters. But mine is way too old. Don't you feel good when you can check off a project on your list. I want to thank you for the wonderful card you sent me. it was so beautiful. The little card about no time limit on grieving helped me too. I keep it by my chair and look at it each evening. You are a true friend. Blessings to you, love you, Susie

  3. Beautiful sink, Debbie! I just love it. I got talked into this one- it is a cream colored granite composite sink and it is a mess and you can't get it clean. I love the size of it but not the workability of it. AND it is cut into granite and is a special shape so I don't know how I would ever replace it.

    That changes your kitchen a lot. Love it- xo Diana

  4. I love the look of your new sink and especially like the embellishment for the front. Looks great!


  5. Your new sink looks fabulous. I love the lavender dish soap and all the decorative items. Thank you very much for the sweet comment.

  6. Oh Debbie, I just love it! I can only imagine what the black one used to look like! The faucet is super cool, too! And I noticed right away the neat knobs you put on the front of the cabinet, that is such a wonderful idea. I can almost smell that potted rosemary, and the lavender dish soap. I would love to have a sink like this in my dream kitchen! **sigh** Enjoy, sweet friend!

  7. Debbie,
    Love the sink, cool pump soap will look for it. Happy first day of Spring, we're having a real snowstorm in the final minutes of Winter. Updates in any room always bring a sense of accomplishment and joy. Us too with checking things off our list. Some updates happening in our kitchen too. I'm really excited over them.
    Your sink size is amazing, mine is deep but not that wide. I wind up oftentimes working on art projects and needing our kitchen sink, I envy your sink,- bigger is better.
    Your photos are beautiful, your home welcoming and pretty.

  8. Hello, I have memories of bathing all my kids and grandchildren in my kitchen sinks! Your new sink is so large and perfect for your kitchen! And that little added decor on the front just made it pop! I love nice smelling soap and the looks of the bottle is a fine way to jazz up my counter! So glad you are checking off those projects, as the lake will be calling your name soon and the kiddos will be running through the house again AHHHHH.... Hugs, Roxy

  9. Love your new sink!! I got a farmhouse sink a few years ago and love how big it is. I can give my puppies a bath in it if I needed too.

  10. Loooooove Debbie. This sink is so great and it looks so sweet in your kitchen.
    Nothing better than a deep large farmhouse sink.

  11. I love a large sink like that one. I had one years ago and really miss it. It is wonderful to get things crossed off the list. I got a few off my list this week but nothing big like yours. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  12. Wow! It looks great. I won't be starting any big projects until the warmer weather arrives.
    Happy Spring, Debbie!!!

  13. Oh I like the new sink! It's perfect for washing those big roasting pans and such and it says 'country' style to me. A friend has something similar in her renovated farmhouse.
    Enjoy your weekend!

  14. Looks so nice Deb! We are doing the same, just one project at a time, right now subway tile in the kitchen!

  15. Your new sink is gorgeous!!! I'll have to check out our Home Goods for the lavender dish soap, it sounds lovely! Love your faux brick, it looks so real.

    I built a little dollhouse a couple of weeks ago and have been slowly building little pieces of furniture for it so I'll for sure have to get a blog post up this coming week!

  16. Oh, this all looks gorgeous!! Every element is perfect :)

  17. You are so right about Hobby Lobby carrying interesting decorative pieces. And I really must get to TJ Maxx for French Lavender anything in those beautiful bottles!

  18. I know how you feel about your sink...I was in love with our new one when we got it. So white and sterile and pretty! I love your fixtures and the bricks behind...faux or it!

    I was thinking, too. Let's get the inside stuff done so we can get outdoors soon! The warm weather may just have us fooled it is closer than it is though!

    Love your nice comments on the house...we will get there little by little ! :)

  19. Hi Debbie, Love your sink and all the pretty details. Just perfect in your gorgeous home. We added a large deep farmhouse stainless steel sink when we did our redo and I love it. I was raised with one and I never realized how much I missed it.
    Enjoy yours and Happy Spring.
    Hugs, CM

  20. Lové the sink, as for its depth it doesn't get any better hen room to hold a house hold of dirty dishes. I would so do a sink like yours, I am tired of the farmhouse sinks only because I see them everywhere. But Debbie, I have to mention the very small detail in this post and that is the white brick backsplash and window seal, it wows me with all the cottage charm a home could have. It's so charming. Enjoy that new sink.


  21. Oh I love the look of the sink kitchen is so tiny but eventually I hope to have something's so pretty and practical too....and so so French !!

  23. Wow, your new sink looks pretty elegant and spacious, which makes it very convenient for a lot of chores. Anyway, what else have you crossed off your to-do list? I hope things are coming along great for you. Thanks for sharing this with us, Debbie. Have a great day!

  24. That sink looks lovely, and quite huge. It’s a great thing you’ve replaced your old one. Having a black, scratched-up sink isn’t very appealing. I think white is a better color to go with, since it looks neat and elegant. Thanks for sharing!

  25. I love your new kitcehn sink! It's wideness is so opportune for a growing family that has a baby. Also, it can accommodate a lot more dishes. Choosing a porcelain material is really a good thing as well. Anyway, I hope you won't encounter any problems in there, especially with regard to the pipes and drains. Thanks for sharing that, Debbie! All the best to you!
