That’s how my new faucet looks :)

I’ll apologize in advance for the low light pictures, it is very difficult to capture this room in particular in anything other than perfect weather conditions.

Anyway…back to the faucet situation. Our old faucet has been getting steadily worse between the leaking sprayer and the broken gasket at the base causing the whole unit to rock back and forth. So finally, I decided to look around online to see what I could find. Here’s a reminder of our old faucet.

I stuck with the brushed nickel finish we had before…despite really really wanting ORB, our sink is still stainless steel, and I thought it would look “off.” I was excited to try the pull out sprayer style in a single hole, and this one happened to come with the cover plate (to cover any holes from a previous faucet) and a soap pump!

I love it! It works a lot better and adds some character to an otherwise unimpressive area [the sink]. The best part was that I got it for $84 including shipping-not bad considering every single hole faucet at the big box stores is at least $100. Now I can’t wait to upgrade my counters (concrete, hopefully) and put in a nice undermount sink!

What do you think? What kind of faucet do you have? Do you like it?

    I LOVE it! I love those long neck faucets, especially when cooking for my family. Coming from an Italian family, homemade spaghetti sauce (or gravy if your east coast Italian) is a must; so when I make it, I make BIG batches. I miss my kitchen faucet that’s similar to yours, it makes cleaning my huge 12 qt. stock pot so much easier. Unfortunately, we are leasing this house in Mass., can’t wait to move back home to Oregon where my faucet like yours waits for me. :)
