Was there really a time when a pastel pink kitchen sink was the envy of every housewife?  I doubt it.  This beauty was the centerpiece of a u-shaped kitchen that was ready for some updating.


The project began with removing the dropped ceiling panels and adding recessed lighting in a new, higher, drywalled ceiling.


The black wrought iron cabinet hinges, panelled doors and scallop trim gave the cabinetry a dated look.  After investigating many options, the homeowners decided on cabinet refacing as the most efficient means of updating.



We made a visit to the granite supplier together, armed with a sample of the new cabinet stain.  Once the granite slab was selected we gave the homeowners several paint color choices.  The rust tone in the stone is close to the cabinet color so we selected paint colors that would bring out the gray tones in the granite.




The finished result is beautiful.  The garden window lets in plenty of light and is framed by a gentle arch above.  The deep gray wall color offsets the warm tones of the wood and the granite.

A hutch was built in opposite the sink for additional storage.  It even contains a concealed charging station for the family cell phones.  Notice the small arch above the open area.

Completing the space is another arch that leads into the dining area.  This room was painted a lighter version of the gray tone in the kitchen.

What happened to the pink sink?  It is offered for sale on Craig’s List and will find a home with someone who sees it as the perfect, quirky addition to their own kitchen remodel.
