Prep sinks on my mind today.  We are waiting for the cabinet maker to deliver the base for our prep sink area, then the stone concrete finisher will come in to create the integrated sink and counter I've designed. 

Everything is coming together –slowly– but surely!

I'm dreaming of stone countertops and sink...probably from all the Cote Sud's I read! I keep telling Brent that it's "just concrete" I don't see why we couldn't do it ourselves! LOL!!

Tiffany! Hi! Good to hear from you. I know what you mean. -Wish it was that simple and I would be doing it right now instead of waiting for the expert to show up!
A renovation is certainly an exercise in patience...Particularly living through one. :) LeAnn

Lovely picture! My grandmother had a sink like this in Greece. It always felt very special whenever I used it even as a little girl.
Happy one year anniversary LeAnn!
