The Faucet Is In

Although the kitchen renovation has been completed for a little over two weeks now, we unfortunately have not had any running water! Yesterday the faucet we ordered finally arrived. I have to say I will never be ordering anything through that company again. It would have been quicker to buy a faucet on eBay. Honestly!

Yesterday after work, I had my dad pick me up and drive to Lowe’s to pick up the new parts we would need to plumb the sink. I can’t say that I know anything about any of the items we purchased. Basically, lots of plastic tubing. At least that’s what it looks like to me. When we got home, I helped him install the faucet and then left him alone to replace the old plumbing with the new white plastic stuff, while I cooked dinner. It took about an hour or so because he also had to hook up the plumbing to the dishwasher. There were a few missing parts that we ended up needing, so he is coming back tomorrow to add those in. After going three weeks without a kitchen sink, another day or two wasn’t going to hurt us.

I love the modern, sleek look of our new faucet. Originally we thought that we only wanted a built in soap dispenser, but this style MOEN faucet did not come with one. In the end, now looking at the sink, I am glad that we didn’t purchase one. Sometimes less is more. I also love that the nose is detachable and comes out to spray the dishes clean. It reaches the whole perimeter of the sink!

Sooner than later,
