Kitchen sink installed

So I was going to try and post some pics on my last post about my kitchen sink, and the topic has been locked. I'll try to do that here. All in all, I'm thrilled with the sink. It is white cast iron, so it will get more difficult to clean as time goes by, but it's been very durable. I'm completely h...

Re: Bead Board..who knew!

That looks great!! I've been wanting to do bead board in my bathrooms, but I've been afraid to tell my husband we need to tackle another home improvement project :)

Re: Kitchen sink dilemma

Yes, sorry, I forgot my login name, LOL!!! I'll take some pics of my kitchen re-do this weekend and upload. We've pretty much gotten everything done except the baseboards and a bit of trim around the countertop. Funny how I keep putting that off - we did so much, for so long, I guess we just burned ...

Re: Kitchen sink dilemma

My husband and I just installed this new sink 2 days ago. I am so excited to say, It Fits!!! :) He had to do a little cutting on the countertop to make it all work, but it fit and it really does look so great! As soon as my laminate guy comes and does my new laminate, I will take a pic and upload. B...

Re: Problem with my newly painted cabinets

Okay thanks, I will. But do you have any idea why this occurred? When we painted them, and I put 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of paint, we couldn't see anything thru the paint. But now we can. Strange. I have touched up the paint a couple of times, and then over time, I can see the bad spots again....

Problem with my newly painted cabinets

We have the wood-look cabinets, which were getting in bad shape. After researching, I decided to sand, prime, and paint them white. It was a big job but when we were done, they looked 900 times better! But now, I can still see the really bad spots where we had to sand a good bit. The wood-look cover...

Re: Kitchen sink dilemma

No I am not really sure what I need to measure for. Is there a lip or ledge that the sink rests on?

Re: Kitchen sink dilemma

Yes that is the reason. My countertop measures 23 3/4 inches wide.

Re: Replacing floor vent covers

I got my new floor vent registers from Lowe's. I got white ones for everywhere but the living room, since my floor is laminate I got a wooden one. What I like about them compared to the ones that came in our MH is that they are loose i.e. they don't screw in. When they need to be cleaned I don't hav...

Re: Kitchen sink dilemma

Hey that's a great idea! I will do exactly that, as soon as this hurricane is done and over with. It's kinda put a crimp in my renovation plans for the moment. A funny thing - I sent an email to the Kohler company explaining my dilemma - HINT HINT there is a market out here and a need that isn't bei...

Re: Kitchen sink dilemma

I should have said, "I'm on a very tight budget!!" LOL!! The first thing we did with our kitchen reno was paint all our cabinets and cabinet doors white. They look awesome. So at this point, I'm not even considering replacing any of our cabinets. Had I known I'd run into this trouble, I might have c...

Kitchen sink dilemma

It's times like these that I just shake my head, wishing I lived in a "regular" house. I have been working on a kitchen redo and now it's time to decide about sink and countertop. It was my wish to replace the SS sink with a black cast iron, but apparently it's impossible to find. Current sink measu...

New bathroom pictures: BEFORE

Hi, I haven't been on here in quite awhile! We got started on our master bathroom last year, and I'm just now posting pics of before and after. There's only a couple more things to do in there, gonna refinish the tub, paint or replace the formica around the tub, and buy a cubby to go next to the big...
