Ode to the Farmhouse Sink ( 10 comments ) My in-laws have this cool little cottage at an old woodsy camp about half an hour outside of Baltimore. The camp started as a summer church camp sometime during the 1800s and has evolved into a kind of odd little town where Baltimore residents have homes away from home (well, cottages anyway). Unfortunately, we haven't gotten a chance to photograph the interior yet, as my mother-in-law's just finished decorating, but my favorite part of the cottage is the kitchen. The countertops are vintage copper and the sink is an enormous old stone farmhouse sink, reclaimed from, yes, an actual farmhouse. The look is perfect for the cottage, and has given me a new appreciation for farmhouse sinks everywhere. They work in more environments than you'd guess - they're not just for country kitchens. Like these: Just look at this sink - it's so rough compared to the pretty dishes and pristine white ceiling - but amazing because of it's rough edges. grey kitchen   This enormous sink is postively majestic - but also rustic. Elegance & Decay   In the midst of a fabulous kitchen with an open, modern layout, a farmhouse sink surrounded by butcher block countertops add a down-home feel that spells family. by JMA I love how the sharp angles of this sink give it a modern look, while the faucets keep it country. by Buttrick Wong Architects Clean and white, this sink is just beautiful. Cottage Kitchen by Valerie Pedersen   This sink's position is perfect - right under a window and nestled between two long counters. Kitchen Pretty blue cabinets and counters are a perfect match for this sin

Is it normal for a white farmhouse sink to crack or spider as it is used? I bought a double sink that is hard to keep white and the spider cracks reminds me of my grandmothers sink. I ordered it from a catalog almost 5 yrs ago. I think it is too late for them to do something about it. What do you say?
