We sprung a leak!!

Our old, builder grade, ugly, utility sink sprung a leak a few weeks ago YIPEE!! Yes that's right I was happy about that, because that was a good reason for me to go out and get a prettier one:)
 I checked Home Depot and Lowes and they only carried the basic ones in the store, so I checked online and found this pretty one on the Lowes website.
 Look at her pretty legs.

 
 It has a nice deep sink and a long neck faucet which is great for filling pails and cleaning things out. We use this sink a lot, especially after we come in from gardening.




 You'll usually find Toby in here too taking a nap:)

Stay tuned... more changes to come, just trying to decide a paint color!

Oh gosh, that is so much nicer than the one that came with our condo, Martina! We wound up taking ours out entirely because we weren't using it and it was just taking up valuable space in the area.

That is nice! Lucky you to have a utility sink. Your dog is so sweet on his bed.

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

We have the basic on in our utility room and I use it to clean paint brushes and give Bailey a bath. Your new one is nice.

This is a beautiful utility sink! I have never seen one like that before. We have a very large utility sink but nothing that compares to this!

Hi Martina! Oh, this is such a pretty thing and you're surely not going to dirty it up are you? :) Don't you love it when our oldies break down. Especially the ones we don't like! :)
You did good.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

That's the prettiest utility sink I have ever seen. I have a few things I am hoping will break too so that I can replace them with something nicer.

WOW, what a great looking utility sink. The cabinet is gorgeous and I couldn't help admiring the gorgeous tiles on the wall. Thanks for sharing your information. I'm getting ready to replace washer and dryer and it may just be the time to go for this too………..

Sometimes it's a blessing when something breaks. :-)
Your new sink and cabinet look great, especially with the cute little feet on the bottom.

Loving your utility sink, I also have a pretty one that I love in my rebumped laundry room, I posted a week ago. I love your little furry, baby Toby! Can't wait to see what you come up with next, dear Martina.
