Wine Making/Seed Starting Room - Part 2

Soooooo....once I got that wall all painted, the Gman attached the shelving unit to the wall. Once the room is done, we'll use this for storage for the wine making equipment.

The other counter unit has been fixed to the wall. We'll use that for seed starting, as well as for working with beer and wine.

While I was painting, the Gman started work on the sink and counter station. See that drawer unit on the left? We've been toting that dayum thing around for years.

Oh! So that's where that license plate was! We have been looking for it for awhile now!! Amazing what you can find when you start cleaning and organizing!

One day, while we were at the local dump, we noticed a fellow with a good looking counter top in the back of his pick up. We asked him if he was dumping it. He said Yup, do you want it?

Uh...yes please! We got it home and the Gman cut it into pieces, which we will use for the "ends" of the sink station. Free is good!!!

We've also been toting around a box of white 6 x 6 inch tiles from Gman's Dad. We're finally going to use them to make a backsplash behind the sink station. We think we have enough tiles to do 3 rows high.

And....our sink. This sink was laying on the ground at our neighbours. The owners were going to take it to the dump along with a bunch of other stuff the previous owners left laying around outside. We asked them if we could have it! They didn't want anything for it, but in the end, we were able to give them a dozen eggs for it.

I'd say we got the better end of that deal! The sink has built in drainboard sides. This will work great in the new room!
