A New Kitchen Faucet

In March 2014 (wow!  almost four years!!) after our second miscarriage we took a trip to Home Depot and decided it was time to update our kitchen faucet.  I know, a weird thing to do, but it was sort of like we just needed to do something.  So a new kitchen faucet it is.

Also, this is in our house in Ohio.

We had inherited this standard builder grade model.

With these awesome nasty connecting tubes.

And this wonderful hot mess.

I needed some help so Paul came to the rescue!

We had a hard time getting the faucet loose so we ended up cutting the pipes.  That looks so gross!

This was the connector at the bottom.  Blech!

Just after we pulled the faucet up.  Pretty gross!

Here she is all completely installed!

It was fairly easy to install.  I had installed three other faucets, bathroom faucets, prior so I’d had some experience. Also, other people who gave me advice about changing out the kitchen faucet made it seem like it was going to be the hardest thing to do.  But it wasn’t.  I’m so glad we updated our faucet and can’t wait to get back to it!
