A birthday gift fulfilled

My new sink was installed last night. My cast iron beauty was installed by a wonderful professional. It took him three hours, and I can only imagine that I would have been out a kitchen sink for at least a weekend if we had tried to do it ourselves. So. I have before and after photos for you.

I am seriously not hard on my sink. I'm generally careful and use only appropriate cleaners. And it was all scratched to hell in less than 10 months.

Holy crap! No sink!

*sigh*
