Our kitchen faucet broke in February. I thought, how expensive can that be?
My greatest concern had to do with whether or not I needed to hire a plumber.
Not to worry, my wife solved that problem. She called our daughter, Robyn, about the issue.
Robyn's husband is a handyman, so I thought, good this will be cheap!
My daughter texted me: Send pics of your kitchen.
That should have been a clue that my world was about to turn upside down for a month.
I sent this pic to the left and the one just below. Little did I know that she and my wife were planning a kitchen remodel job.
My wife explained, "If we are going to get a new faucet, we might as well get a new sink."
Except, she wanted a black sink, which then required a new countertop. We compromised and my daughter helped me refinish our counter with a Rust-Oleum Countertop kit. A simple project that only lasted two full days. LOL
I will say the results were beautiful and gave "Your's Truly" a sense of accomplishment. My wife is in her work-clothes below, painting cupboards. (Notice that big smile.)

I planned to do the floors by myself. (If you know me at all, you might laugh at this point.)
He came to my rescue and we now have everything complete.
Actually, the faucet wasn't expensive at all. In fact, our remodel job turned out to be relatively cheap.
Here are a few pictures of our completely renewed kitchen below. Everything, including the light fixture, ended up being replaced. Oops, I have to admit, the ceiling fan is leftover from the old scheme.
