Done aaaaaand Done!

R.I.P ugly cheap faucet.

This statuesque beauty has taken your place:

Climbing around under the sink is hard on your back.  Not to mention a little oogie and claustrophobic.  But it’s ever so worth it.  Especially since the plumber who came to fix our water heater told me he charges $290 to install a kitchen faucet.  (I also saved money by getting this faucet on ebay.  75% off the retail price!)
Moving on from the faucet to the drab walls.

Aaah, color.  That’s better.

Great. Now the beige tile looks even more hideous.

  1. This is a true story but you have to promise never to tell. Back when vinyl lettering was still kinda sorta new, my step-mom gave us all glass bricks for Christmas that said, "LIVE LAUGH LOVE." I figured out you could scrape the lettering off and removed the first 6 letters and the last four letters from my mom's one, leaving only "UGH."

    I would LOVE to have some finished projects to show for myself. Although I don't envy the stress that got you in a finishing-projects mode.

  2. Okay, NOW I'm all caught up on your blog.

    Happy anniversary!

    I don't mind sweating (too much) and I would probably enjoy running if I didn't worry that it would ruin my knees and make my uterus fall out.

    I really did start seeing spots last night when I had to give up on commenting, and it's the 2nd time this week that's happened, and I'm scared it's being caused by my IUD, but I don't want to go to the doctor because my IUD has stopped my menorrhagia (overly heavy periods) so I really don't want to have to have it removed. I guess instead I'll just have to give up the internet.

  3. Oh, WOW, Jennie! You are a whiz with both decorating and plumbing! Both jobs look FABULOUS! I'm so proud of you! I got a new faucet for my rental house, and don't know if I have the moxie to install it myself.

    I'm gradually getting my moving act together, but I'm BEAT! EVERY DAY!!

  4. That is quite impressive. I love that you were able to buy that faucet on ebay. Clever girl. So what are you going to do about the backsplash now? Some kind of mosaic tile masterpiece? I am always in awe of the projects that you take on, and finish!

  5. That is beautiful! I love the faucet and walls. Good job changing it out yourself. I make my husband do it and pretend that because his father is a plumber, he should genetically know how to do all plumbing related things.

  6. I am in love with your faucet- is is ok to have faucet envy? I have been looking at similar ones for a while, but never thought of looking for it on ebay at 75% discount- brilliant!! My search begins….NOW!
