When it comes to home repair and home decorating, I usually do the projects with my mom. J enjoys the improvements we make and will help out if we ask, but it’s not really his thing. When we moved into our new house, one thing I knew we needed to replace was the faucet in the wet bar. It was broken and leaking and ugly. So it was definitely on the list of things to do. The kitchen faucet was also on that list because the sink is white and faucet was black. It didn’t work that well anyway.
J works in plumbing supply so the plan was to order the faucets that we wanted and then have a plumber friend come and install them. When the faucets arrived, J decided he wanted to try doing it himself! I will admit that I was a bit nervous but I was willing to let him try!
DIY Daddy Conquers the Wet Bar Faucet!
This is the wet bar sink and faucet before J started his work. The faucet was broken and the sink was dirty and gross. J ordered a new faucet and a new sink! Once he brought them home, he got to find out just how much fun it is to DIY it with a baby roaming around! W thought it was a ton of fun to try to help Daddy underneath the sink! J was also working ont he project when he got home from work so it took him two nights to complete but it was worth it!
Although we don’t use the wet bar often, the new faucet and sink look amazing! J did a wonderful job on this project! It made a huge difference in the wet bar area! Before the change, the area just looked kind of old and dingy. Now it has a fresh look and is actually functional for when we want to use it! I never thought I would have a wet bar area but I’m pleased to have one with this great faucet!
Plumbing is a DIY project that I haven’t been brave enough to try yet but J did and it was a success!
Have you ever changed a faucet on your own? Did you run into any challenges?
