Sink with a story

One of my favorite features of the Magnolia House is the extra large kitchen sink. The beast had lived most of its life in a farmhouse back in Massachusetts. Oddly, that is also where I grew up, so I was instantly attracted. It was difficult to ship, it needed repair, it needed to be resurfaced, it was a piece of work. And I bought it on ebay, and only barely got it in the last 15 seconds. But, it was the perfect fit to go with the cabinets which only came in so many sizes, and it had a backsplash and legs which sold me. The sink was fabulous in the end, and even when full of dishes, it always looked good.
