With all the supports in place it went fast…
Then I got to do the honors and cut out the final pieces of support on the sink hole with Kev supporting from below.
Out she goes!
The moment of truth as we dropped in the sink revealed….
It fit perfect!
What you don’t see here in the photos is the next hour while we ran around the house screaming like crazy people trying to fix the caulk that turned into an almost disaster.
So here’s the long story….The sink had been caulked into the countertop we removed it from with nice thick gooey white caulk. So we assumed that’s what we would do without missing a beat. The clamps that held it in place didn’t fit our bigger countertop but we thought it would work fine.
Errrr. Hindsight is twenty twenty right?
We should have used a clear caulk and gotten longer clamps.
What we ended up doing was running around with nail polish remover and toothbrushes and rags and peanut butter frantically trying to clean the white WHITE caulk out of the grooves of the countertop. Because our laminate fake wood countertop has grooves in it…who knew?!?
Peanut butter? It got the caulk off of the good toothbrush so we could keep going.
A pile of wood and bricks and coming up on 24 hours later we are holding our breath and hoping it all goes well.
So far so good, and think it looks pretty darn good if I say so myself!
Have you done any projects that you messed up or nearly messed up recently?
Maybe we can prevent some future almost disasters!
