  1. Hello Julie,
    I am new to your site, and just found it by following the home tour through Ann Sutton. I just have to say, you have a beautiful home and I love your decorating. Your new kitchen is amazing!

      Thank you, Vivian! I’m not sure how I missed your sweet comment back when you left it in September! Thanks so much for visiting and for your kind compliments! 🙂

  3. Now that you have had your farmers sink for awhile. What are your honest thoughts about it. Is it too big, use too much water?? Or just right!! Also, I would like your opinion on your pot filler over your stove? Is it worth the money?
    Thanks Kathy

      Hi Kathy,
      I love my farm sink! I adore the huge size. The only real down side to the big sink is that when I clean off food from plates to go in to the disposal it scatters all over the sink and I have to use my hands or the water sprayer to “chase” the debris down to the drain/disposal. I probably use a little more water with the sink, but my husband — who is always monitoring our water consumption — hasn’t complained. I have had to change my dish washing habits a little with just one basin and not having a split sink anymore, but I don’t miss my old sink at all. It was also good sized with a smaller sink that had the disposal. That little sink always bothered me because it really was only good for disposing of waste and that was about it, yet my family always seemed to want to put dirty dishes in there.

      As for the pot filler, it has been wonderful and worth our investment. Our kitchen is large and there is always a lot of walking — the pot filler has helped eliminate some of the walking. Now I can just fill pots right at the stove — it’s so nice! I will also add that the cost of our pot filler was pretty minimal because we discovered an existing water line exactly where we needed it. A plumber did have to add some plumbing off of that line to accommodate the pot filler, but we didn’t have to add a new line or anything like that which would have added significantly to the cost. Also, we found a fixture at a good deal (I think it was around $300 — if you’ve looked at all you know that the fixtures can be really expensive!) so all in all the filler didn’t bust our budget. I’m thrilled that we were able to add it and I use it quite a bit.

      I hope that helps! Good luck with any updates/renovations you might be planning!
