Happy Monday, friends!!
This week is Spring Break for us, but we are staying home. Cy’s taking a few days off to complete some projects around the house.
We will definitely be finishing our laundry room this week, and I am working on sharing the progress through a video series. YAY!
Do you remember the post where I told you I was looking for a concrete sink for our laundry room? I shared inspiration photos like the one below…
I wrote that post in October, but I had been looking for months before that to find a concrete sink that we could use. I did most of my searching on Craigslist, but I couldn’t find a sink that was in good shape. Most were cracked or covered in paint.
We were about to give up when I found the perfect sink last Sunday. It had been listed only 7 hours earlier, and I knew that it wouldn’t last long, so I was salivating to purchase it asap. Only problem was that it was in Asheville, North Carolina! :(
I looked up the location on google maps, and realized that it was 4 1/2 hours away, so I asked Cy if I could drive there and back in one day to get it? At first, he thought I was crazy, but then when he looked at the sink, he knew it was a great buy. Plus, now that Jonathan is homeschooled, it made Cy feel better to know that Jonathan would be going with me.
We contacted the seller, sealed the deal, and decided to get the sink the next day.
So last Monday, I picked up Sania from school at noon, and the three of us drove down to North Carolina to get our concrete sink! After we got our sink, we at dinner in Asheville and then drove back home. We got home at about 12:30 am.
I shared the adventure on my insta-stories, and thought I saved the videos to my phone, but I didn’t. :(
But here is a shot of the sink in our garage.
This thing is a BEAST! It is around 300 pounds, and very difficult to move around, but I LOVE it!
Yesterday, we painted the base and sanded down some of the galvanized trim, and here is a sneak peek of it in our laundry room….
We still have to install the window trim, paint the baseboard, and of course, add the plumbing and faucet, but we are getting soooooo close!
It is exactly what I was envisioning for this space, and I am thrilled we got it! It was definitely worth the done day trip to North Carolina.
I’m having a lot of fun putting our laundry room together, and I look forward to sharing it all with you soon.
Until then, have a blessed day, friends!!
