my favorite find to date! A $50 dual drain board farmhouse sink.


I updated my kitchen on a tight budget and all by myself. I had been searching for an old dual drainboard sink and couldn't believe the prices on-line. Thank goodness for our local salvage yard. Since finding this one, I have had 2 more given to me. I plan to use one for a laundry room and the other for an outdoor kitchen.

I fell in love with one of them and at $50 how could I resist. About a week later I went to visit my Uncle on his farm and bragged about my old sink with drain boards and he said "You mean like the one outside by the chicken coop?" The 3rd one came to me from a friend whose parents were tearing down an old house. They knew I'd want it and saved it from the land fill. Goes to show that you should talk to family and friends first! P.S. I just found another on craigs list for $20! Posted: 4:41 pm on May 7th
