I've often heard children say, "There's nothing to do today". I beg to differ. I'd like to inspire you to do something. Anything. Read. Bake. Hike. Fish. Plant. Sail. Climb. Play. Reach. Move. Laugh. Dream; and take time to sit with me on The Old Granite Step.

A vintage dresser makes a lovely sink base.

When you visualize what you have in mind, it's 

not always easy to make it work.  I've thought about how to replace this old 70's sink for the last several years.  In order to make it a bit better looking until we removed it, I switched out the knobs and gave the cabinet a new coat of paint.  It wasn't much better, but it gave me a bit of a reprieve.  
At a wonderful auction in Maine last summer, you know the one....light summer breeze, outdoor seating, a good cup of coffee and great finds; we paid a mere $15 for the old dresser.  Did I want it to be perfect?  Not in the least.  A 200 year old house is deserving of something with character.  The turned legs caught my eye.
It was exactly what I was looking for.  Simplicity at it's best.
