Adorable Retro Kitchen & my new sink!

Steve and I are making some great progress on our kitchen.
I got a new sink and faucet put in!

Old sink:
Standard shallow stainless steel junker that I can't fit a pot or pan in



Here is the new sink.
 I wanted an apron front... but just couldn't bring myself to spend $500.00 + on it.
 So I got this awesome white single basin sink off craigslist for $20.00!
Then i bought a new industrial faucet off Overstock.com.



I also got all of the cabinet knobs and drawer pulls this week too!

Brushed nickel cup pulls for the drawers

Vintage glass knobs for the cupboards

Before we can install them, I have to sand and paint the cupboards white.

Any volunteers?!

Here are some cute retro kitchen inspiration pics I found




This one is my favorite

I like the bright colors with all the white.
There are so many cute little cupboards too!


And I would love to have this oven.


Ahhhh... it's all just time and money, right!?

LOVE LOVE LOVE the new sink! What a freakin deal you got!!!!

I can't wait to see what you do with the kitchen. The kitchen is next on our list. We first have to finish the back yard, which is turning into a monster project!

Wow, that's an awesome deal you got for the sink. That's a cute choice for the knobs and handles. You can never go wrong with retro. Those retro kitchens are the cutest. I love all the bold and stunning colors in them!

You made good purchases! I like your white single basin sink and the new industrial faucet! With these additions, your kitchen now looks brand new. By the way, if you really want to achieve the look of those retro kitchens, you really have to invest time, effort, and money. I think that will be a breeze if your mind’s set into reaching your goals. Good luck!
