Kitchen Sink Score

Back when I posted about my new appliances, I also posted pics of what I was planning for the kitchen remodel. That plan included a big 'ol fatty farmhouse sink like this one...

Now, I don't know why no one spoke up and told me just how flippin expensive they are. Seriously, I knew they were pricey, but dang! Since our kitchen remodel is all about how far we can stretch a dollar, I realized that my farmhouse sink was not going to happen. Sigh.

Anyway, earlier this week I was at Home Depot picking up some spray paint, trim nails and plywood - you know, the usual - when I came across (ok, perhaps I stalk it) the clearance section. There, on the floor, was one lonely kitchen sink marked down from $280 to $145. My interest was peaked - but was it single basin? Yes! Undermount? Yes! Stainless? Yes! 32x18x9? Yes, yes and yes! Into the cart it went and when I got home I went right to Google to make sure it was actually a good deal (and Home Depot didn't fool me with their inflated prices). The best deal I could find online was $245. So I'm feeling pretty good about my new sink. Here is the stock photo of it...
Mine is still in the box and I'm pretty sure you don't want to see a picture of the box. Of course, you are reading a post about a kitchen sink that's not even installed yet, so perhaps you do. It IS a thrilling subject.

So now, instead of the kitchen looking something like this...

it will look more like this...

and I get the satisfaction of throwing my current sink - a plastic, scratched up, stained, double basin disaster - into the dumpster.
(It actually doesn't look too bad in this picture...hmmm, maybe I could sell it....)

Hey I saw your dumpster rocker transformation a while back and I was wondering what the name of the fabric you used is? If you know and could pass that along my email is andyh405@hotmail.com. Thanks! Love it!

If you still have your sink you could use it as a planter in the back yard. I saw it on a show once.
