The Sink Is Sunk

I spent most of last weekend getting my new kitchen sink and faucet hooked up. Aside from one incident where I had to remove and re-seat my toilet, I've never been much of a plumber. Still, I didn't think it would be too difficult set up the plumbing for the kitchen sink on my own. And since I discovered a previously-hidden outlet behind the old sink cabinet, I figured I might even be able to hook up a new garbage disposal. I bought all of the supplies from my local Home Depot.

For the faucet, I went with the Glacier Bay Lyndhurst 2-Handle Bridge Kitchen Faucet with Side Sprayer in Stainless Steel. I wanted something that looked different from the typical standard, and I liked the look of the Lyndhurst. It's artsy, yet feels very sturdy and, of course, I love the little sprayer. Here's hoping that the whole thing is sturdy enough to last a number of years. The sink itself is a standard, Kohler two bowl, four hole stainless steel sink.

I purchased an InSinkErator Badger 500 garbage disposal. It's a great little unit, but, if you're going to buy it and hook it up to an outlet, you're going to have to buy an extra cord to go along with it. Thankfully, the unit hooked up easily and I only had to do some minor maze work with the pipes in order to incorporate it into my setup. Here's the result:
