The faucet was installed yesterday and boy I love it! I guess my style is “eclectic,” or just a mish-mash of things. I searched for faucets for weeks and was about to settle for a cheaper bridge faucet until I ran across the Jalco Steam Valve Original series.
THIS faucet is why I didn’t go with a farmhouse sink in the first place…because it was kind of pricey. I did find an excellent deal at Quality Bath, but it was more than I wanted to spend on a faucet that I probably won’t be able to take with me.
The handles were what sold me. John wanted two handles so he could control the temperature better, and I only wanted a pull-down with one stem. Speaking of pull-down faucets, this is another feature that I didn’t know of when I ordered it.
Instead of the hose retracting into the cabinet underneath and getting looped around the Windex bottle, the hose actually resides in the neck(?) of the faucet! Awesome!
A quick update on the rest of the kitchen…
The crown moulding along the top of the cabinets has been completely removed. On Sunday while John brought Demi to a friend’s house (a tired puppy is a great puppy), I was able to plan and build the boxes to place on top of the cabinets.
You can see the deck peeking out on the right of that picture, and you can see my “workshop patio.” The next house will have a workshop, because currently our garage is a painting station. Don’t worry John… I covered all the bike stuff with drop cloths!
Yes, I’ve started to paint the cabinets. I am testing out the spray gun and finding the right primer right now. Yesterday, I pulled out the primer I had purchased for this project a while back and found this…
Can you save this? I have no idea. So off to Lowe’s for me this morning to get some new primer along with some lumber to finish the boxes that I am adding to the cabinets.
And your weekly Demi pic…hanging out on the deck yesterday. I think she just goes outside to warm up because I keep my house so cold. #nevergonnachangethat
