What'd you end up with?
I had a major kitchen plumbing crisis, added a few extras while we were at it, and ended up with: all new kitchen plumbing, faucet, sink, disposal, and granite countertops. Not all for $1k, of course...but that's where the $ went. Thrilled with the new kitchen space, but still wish I had a 50"-er, especially now that my 37" LCD just died. Hmph.
