New Faucet

This is not really a craft, BUT it was done during nap time, and I need to post something! I miss my camera so much. (Sigh, Anyway!)

A few weeks ago we had a leaky faucet. More like, if you turn it on the kitchen will be soaked, faucet. After my handsome husband tried to fix it, and then my father-in-law, we had this.

Just getting the faucet off was tricky. We ended up getting an entire new faucet. It was a blessing in disguise, because this one is soooo much better. It has a pullout spray, and soap dispenser. I love it.
(I really want to change up behind the sink area, any ideas?)

I won't go into the troubles of the faucet, but I will tell you what we learned.

- New home builders are very cheap. Everything we encountered in this process was cheap and would have to be replaced eventually.

- Home repair, even plumbing can be done yourself. Try something first before calling a professional. It may be harder, but you will learn a ton, and next time it will be so much easier.

-Some people at Lowe's and Home Depot know what they are talking about.

-If you can not figure it out, ask your entire family to come over and help. It can't hurt to have lots of opinions.

That is the story of our new faucet. I can't help but look around the house now and wonder what else we can replace. Oh well, we are sticking to the "if it isn't broken don't fix it" motto.
