L Bee Note: We have been compensated for this post with product. All reviews, opinions, and general excitement are my own.
It’s been a long while since I last posted (roughly two weeks, but whose counting?), and although we’ve been radio silent things have slowly but surely been coming together in the kitchen. First was the appliances, then the sink, and finally we received the kitchen counter tops on Monday!
Things that turned out well:
- I love the cabinets and the warm gray color I chose.
- I even like the counter tops, which are Corian and I was not 100% happy about them at first, but now that they’re in I think they were a great (and budget conscious!) choice.
- I adore the knobs I picked out for the cabinets because they are vintagey and fun.
However, my absolute FAVORITE part of the kitchen is the gorgeous faucet.
The faucet is the Pfister Ashfield Bridge Faucet which we got from our friends at National Builder Supply. They’re awesome!
And it also does this:
Cool, right? Which is great for when you need the nozzle spray for cleaning dishes or washing debris from the corners of the sink. The faucet has all the bells and whistle of a “fancy” faucet, but with a clean, sleek, look.
Guys, Guys….I don’t think you are quite getting the magnitude of this transformation!
Ahh a farm sink and a beautiful faucet is like peanut butter and jelly: OK alone, but WAY better together. I like to look at the picture above and imagine how much the faucet is going to “pop” once I re-paint the walls and put up the backsplash.
We are young and doing our first home renovation, which means we took our contractor’s advice on where to get things (read=not custom and just kind of plain options in general) but purchasing a custom faucet went a long way to making the space feel more personal and special, which is exactly how I wanted my starter home kitchen to feel.
What do you guys think about my kitchen reno and new faucet? We still have the backsplash to do, but other than that, we are done! How do you feel about those gray cabinets?
