Our new old kitchen is not what dreams are made of, but it is a space that works hard for us. It provides a space for us to cook for our weekly small group, prepare family meals, and my endless smoothie making to keep me on this healing journey. Slowly but surely it is getting a little sprucing till we are financially and emotionally ready to handle a kitchen reno. For now I still need to tackle painting the other wall of cabinets, but this view makes me happy. It makes me especially happy since I finally found something to bring this old sink back to life. During our first phase of renovations this vintage sink became beaten, spotted, and stained. It honestly made my heart hurt every time I looked at it. It was one of the treasures of this old house. I tried everything. Nothing wanted to work. Finally I got hold of bar keepers friend in powder form and it made the sink like new! I used to use the liquid form for our glass top stove from a couple houses back. Now to finish up the rest of the sprucing so I can finally share the small kitchen facelift.
