A Farmhouse Sink

When we first bought our house, the kitchen left a lot to be desired.  But something I was very excited about was the old farmhouse sink that was in great condition.

 I didn't fully appreciate the drainboards on each side until we installed our butcher block countertop.  Although the countertops have a sealer on them, I try not to let too much water get on them and this is where the drainboards come in handy.

When I wash dishes, I love to think of using the same sink that somebody else used years ago. 


  1. i have always wanted a sink like that! so beautiful. to often you see people just rip them out and throw them away. good to see you enjoying the uniqueness of your house.

  2. I have farmhouse sink envy. I'm just saying.

    I'm appreciative of the fact that you love it...agreeing with hipchickshomestead!

  3. I just found your blog. I love a house with history, too. My husband and I bought an old, but remodeled, farmhouse a year ago. It inspires a desire to decorate. Your blog is so fun and sure to be a success.

  4. love your farmhouse sink. When we lived in NC our neighbor had a lovely sink just like yours. So pretty and practical.

  5. I love how the sink has built-in areas for drying dishes. You know when you have only five dishes and don't want to run the DW? How beautiful. It reminds me of my Grandma's sink too.

  6. I have a dish washer but I always end up washing the dishes by hand. Love to do it.


I always look forward to reading your comments... thank you for taking the time to leave one!
