Sorry For Being Absent.....

Well, my husband is back home from his Uncle's funeral. He is coping much better. He is just glad to know he is not in anymore pain. And I want to thank you all for your prayers and comments. They were so needed this past week. Thanks girls. But onto a happier note... I was browsing craigslist and boy did I find something good! I have been wanting a dry sink for the longest. And there she was in all her dusty glory. She was calling out to me "Take me home, get me out of this garage!" So, I asked my husband who was in Florida for the funeral at the time. He was reluctant to say yes. But I dropped "I'll make brownies!" line. And he caved. So, with three kids and a van I was on a mission to retrieve this beauty. I dropped by the owners house and they loaded into my van. As I was driving I was thinking "How the heck am I gonna get this into the house?". But my seven year old son and I managed to lug it in the house. It had wheels on the bottom so it helped too. But here are the pictures. I am planning on either re staining it or painting it completely. And I want to put new hardware on it. What do you think?

Gen,

You make me laugh. I didn't know all it took to get male cooperation was making brownies.

And, that is a great dry sink. I have been looking for one....forever and still don't own one. I'd say that was a great trade-off: brownies for a dry sink.

Yup,Theresa. A way to a man's heart is defiantly past his mouth! LOL. I actually got the dry sink from a craig's list. I was combing the ads and happened upon it. Got it for a steal too, 50 bucks! So, try on craig's list. You might have more luck there. Thanks for reading my blog!
~*Hugs*~ Gen

I love it as it is but if it were mine, I'd paint it barn red and then stain it with dark walnut. But that's just me......
Did the 7 year old require brownies as well? :)

Lmao, Linda. No, brownies required for my 7 year old. When Mamma says "jump to it", you better. I have trained them well. LOL. They are used to going on "adventures" with me anyway so they know they have to help.
I was thinking about either restaining the dry sink a darker stain or just paint it black and prim it up. But everytime I mention it to the hubs he gives me the side eye. Maybe I got to put some thing in my brownies to get him to like my opinion of painting it black?
