my new table, sink & flea market treasures!

I have found the MOST beautiful table and chairs set at Kmart. That's right Kmart. It is part of the "Jaclyn Smith Collection" which sounds perfectly elegant, lol. But I do love it! It is mahogany and I love the color, almost cherry. And on sale...$199 down from $249. Luurve it!

It is 39"L x 39"W x 36"H and I am tickled pink with it! I have a LARGE dining room table that is way too big for my kitchen dining area and I will be moving it to the den area. This table is just what I want for now. (I have plans for a booth in this area in the future...) As soon as I get it in place I will post pics of how it really looks (along with pics of the table now in there - so you can see the difference.) 

Now, for the sinks!! Needed these for sooooooo long. Presently we have WHITE cast iron....I know, right?!?!?!? We also have hard water with lots of iron (which of couse we have a water softening system but still...) Now I have STAINLESS STEEL. Stainless, I might add...did I say stainless? You get the idea. Lowe's $229 plus tax, a real steel (pun intended.)

And, these are his 'n her sinks. He likes to stack and soak the dishes in the sink. He gets the large one, it's 9" deep. I like to have a sink free of everything for peeling and assorted odd jobs that I can use mine is the little one. It is small and 8" deep so he can't stack it with too much, right? Aaaah, we will see...and now the faucets. We presently have the chrome flat one, which I also hate. I really don't like the one handle for all water temperatures idea....I like being able to choose and adjust individually....

Look, more stainless steel! I only have three holes in my sink, so we're debating on whether or not we are going to use the sprayer. I am thinking through the counter on the left side so Mr. Wonderful can spray to his hearts content! If not, we may not use it. Still a good deal at $93 and we (when I say we, I mean me) are very happy with it. And one more tidbit to share with you is my flea market old wire shelf and DARLING little elephant planter....both for $8. I know, I rock.

I put some little terra cotta planters on some of the shelves....actually they are citronella candles that I plan on recycling with ivy and other plants. I want two or three little wicker or wooden baskets on the bottom shelves for gardening gear. Mr. Wonderful wanted to paint it but I like it just like it is. Do you like?

Hi friends,

A stainless steel sink is available in a variety of styles. They can be manufactured in a single, double or even triple bowl configuration and this provides the consumer with a range of options as to the sink they purchase for their kitchen. They also come in a few different shapes. The most common tends to be a square shape although rectangular and circular bowls are also available. Thanks a lot.....
