As mentioned previously, I am designing our new kitchen myself.
My goal is to make it look as vintage + charming as all get-out.
G.O.’s goals are more storage + maximize the counter space!
Oh, dear. Another conflict of interests seems to have arisen.
Like I didn’t see this coming.

But enough about that, for now.
Let’s view what I like, shall we?
I spied this on Facebook just the other day,
so I’m now kind of obsessing!
I mean, COME ON!!
That sink is some serious fabulousness, isn’t it?
Stay tuned — I’ll discuss further, in just a moment.
Let’s have a look-see at my tentative kitchen sketch:
I desire a farmhouse sink.
G.O. might be on board with this.
In fact, we have IKEA’s Domsjo sink in our current kitchen:
Here ’tis, in our current kitchen:
That sink looks good, doesn’t it?
Does it look even bettah, now that I’ve shared that it costs a mere $312.98?
I thought so.
I’m sure G.O. thought so, when he saw the price tag!
One might think we’d spring for this again, but sadly, we won’t.
Those grooves on the back are kind of impossible to clean,
+ we’ve had some chipping issues, too.

So, as is true of most everything, it’s time for a plan B.
This stainless farm sink might be plan B . . .
. . . but it doesn’t really make me as happy as it should.
This does, though:
Yes, we’re back to that pale blue awesomeness.
Check out this Plan B contender:
We already have our very own vintage sink (FREE!)
It’s currently languishing downstairs in our cellar hide-a-way:
I KNOW!! It’s kind of scary, isn’t it?
But, if you can get past the squalor,
it’s really a cool sink, + it’s in good shape, too!
I think there’s a problem with its size, though.
The sink comes in at a whopping 66″ long.
Since we’ll have a mere 96″ of counter space for it,
you do the math (I used a calculator!)
There just won’t be a lot of counter space leftover.
G.O. will not be pleased.

Let’s not discount the fact that it would make me deliriously happy!
Should I go for it?
