Many years ago my mom put a really cool deep white sink with a black undercoating in our beach house laundry room. I loved it! Ever since then I’ve had my eye out for an opportunity to use a sink like it.

I think trough style wall hung sinks are so fun in a laundry room or bathroom, don’t you?

One fun little tip I learned in our English Tudor was that you can “powder coat” things such as the underside of wall hung sinks, tubs, and even heat registers, appliances, outdoor furniture or millions of other things to give them a fresh new solid coating to restore it or even just to change the color to suit your decor.

There are so many colors available you can really get creative!

Even though these sinks may have been new to begin with, they were probably powder coated to be those pretty shades on the undersides.

We took all of our 1930s house boiler wall heat registers to be powder coated when we first moved into that house. They were covered with layers and layers of grime and old paint and I thought they might be beyond hope of being salvaged before we took them in to a local powder coating or auto body type shop. After a brand new powder coat, they were like new (almost better than new)!

A trough sink is definitely on my house goals and dreams list, I can’t imagine a more charming addition to a bathroom or laundry room!

Happy Monday!

O ne of the things I’m most excited about as I plan out our remodel is the fun of getting new appliances! I haven’t bought new appliances in a long time, I just used what we already had when we remodeled our last kitchen so I didn’t even look into what was available out there. Now I’m definitely starting to research and think about what we would want and it’s pretty fun to see all the new innovations!

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (my first time in Vegas!). CES is a huge innovation conference. I was invited to attend with Samsung (along with The Everyday Man and Joe’s Daily) as one of their brand ambassadors, so it was really neat to be able to see their brand new appliances first hand.

Today I thought I’d introduce you to two of Samsung’s new appliances I was especially excited about, the Family Hub refrigerator and the AddWash washing machine. I was pretty impressed at how far appliances have come since the last time I was appliance shopping. I love how these appliances could help make family life easier and more efficient.

First of all, this is the awesome Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator. The busier our family has become and the more my business has grown, the more we are learning to use technology to keep ourselves sane and organized. While I still love my command center magnetic chalkboard on the wall and enjoy using paper notebooks and calendars, for coordinating our busy life I do use electronic calendars to color code schedules, set reminders and keep everything organized.

So as a mom and business owner, imagine my delight when I saw this refrigerator. It features an electronic family organizing center right there on the fridge where everyone in the family can see it! Check out our video below for some of the highlights. It offers so many features that could be real time (and money!) savers while helping keep the family connected and organized.

 

I also love that it has a FlexZone where you can decide if you want it to be a freezer or a fridge at any given time, that’s brilliant. If you’re interested in seeing more about the Family Hub, check out Samsung’s promo video about it here, it’s definitely worth watching!

Next up was the AddWash washing machine. I shared about it a couple of months ago, but this time I actually got to see it in action! For those of you front loader fans, this machine takes laundry efficiency up a notch by solving one of the main limitations with previous front loaders. Samsung has added an extra door to the front design to finally make it possible to add in that stray sock you dropped, a bath towel that needs to get into your wash load, or even to add more delicate laundry later in the cycle.

 

Check out our video above!

Hope you enjoyed our sneak peek! I can’t wait to share more plans for our upcoming kitchen remodel, including cabinet colors, counter and layout ideas!

I am thrilled to be a brand ambassador for Samsung Home Appliances and this post was created as a part of my partnership. My experiences and opinions are my own.
