How to clean a cast iron sink

How to clean a cast iron sink

Several months ago (as part of our kitchen remodel), we decided to pour our own concrete countertops.  You can find part 1, part 2 and part 3 here.

If you're new here, welcome! You can follow me on Instagram (greywoodmama) for more behind the scenes stories of our remodeling projects!

If you've been following me on this journey, you know that this remodel process is taking WAY longer than expected. But, I'm ok with it - we are learning SO much!

Grab your coffee and settle in for this one.

I wish I had great news for you. I wish I was showing you pictures of the beautiful, finished product.  I wish for a lot of things.

But friends, I have nothing.

At least a couple times a day, I get the question ‘So, how’s the kitchen coming along?’

Subway tile. Enough said.

Now that the concrete countertops are done and out of the way, our kitchen is finally starting to come together. If you haven’t read the DIY Concrete Countertop series and you have no idea what I’m talking about, find the posts here:

We did it. We made our own concrete countertops.

This was one of the biggest decisions we’ve had to make as a married couple (okay maybe not that big, but it was important). And because of this large decision, our kitchen project kept getting delayed.

I’m so excited to share part 2 of the DIY pour in place concrete countertop series, the concrete pour and finish!  (If you haven’t already, read Part 1 - Setting the forms.)

We finally have countertops!  And they are not just any countertops - concrete countertops!

We have spent countless hours researching our countertop options and as some of you know, we went back and forth between wood and concrete for quite some time.

Well, we finally settled on pour in place concrete and I am SO glad we did.
