Sinks and Faucets and Countertops Oh My...

Okay, so I am beyond excited this evening!! We went out this afternoon and ordered our new kitchen countertops, sink and faucet. I can't wait for everything to be installed. The countertop is called Blackstar Granite and we got a beautiful sink and faucet to go with it. The sink is a lovely shade of creamy white called "biscuit" and the faucet is the prettiest oil rubbed bronze. Very European looking. We currently have a stainless steel sink with a double bowl which is nice but neither bowl is really big enough for my big pots and pans. The new one has a HUGE single bowl with TONS of room. It reminds me of a big farmhouse sink only without the apron. Oh I love it!! We also got all new door handles for the bathroom, laundry room, front hall closet, pantry and basement steps. The finish on those is the same as the new faucet. Did I say I can't wait??!! LOL - I'm just a little excited!


So anyway, I bought this fabric pictured above to make my new kitchen curtains! I can't wait until everything is put together. I'll be sure to post plenty of pictures when it's done.
