My dad is amazing. He did this in one weekend. Can you believe that? New countertops, sink, faucet, installing a dishwasher and moving cabinets - in. one. weekend.
Yes, he is amazing.
No longer am I squirted with water every time I turn the faucet on. I bought a sink that has two different size basins and it's been really nice. My pans fit in the large basin much better and the smaller basin is perfect for the little hand dishes I do.
As you can see, we still have some work left to do, but that will be done at a later date. I think my dad deserves a little break. I'm starting to feel like a slave driver.
To be honest, I think I wasn't originally a fan of the black because it doesn't go with my "dream kitchen" plans. Someday many of the things in this room will change, but that is at least 5 years away. This is a perfect temporary fix and I'm very happy with it.
But, ya know what? I wont have to worry about that anymore - guess who got a dishwasher?
This dork (points thumbs at self). I love it. I even posed for a blurry-dog-held-hostage photo with it. There's one piece I need to get to make sure the drain tube doesn't disconnect from the drain pipe - so I haven't actually used it yet. Dad said it would be fine, but I could tell he wanted me to get that piece first and I don't want to risk it.
It's even been fun just to load it. Having dirty dishes out of sight is the best and it's even better knowing I don't have to clean them.
Next steps for the kitchen:
– patch drywall
– door knobs & pulls
– tile backsplash
– new floor
– board & batten by back door
– bench by back door
