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.

  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.

  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.
