For LIFE – Moen!! (and a giveaway!)

I haven’t talked about my kitchen in a while… we had to backtrack a little.  My lovely counters had some flaws, so a tech came out to inspect and agree that they were flawed – and of course it was a problem they couldn’t fix in-home.  So a team came out and removed them, then I lived a few days without counters – more importantly, without a KITCHEN SINK! (try living without one of those!) – and they installed them back in yesterday.

So I’ve got to tell you all about my sink – I love it – it’s granite, black, and extra deep on one side.  I dived right in to using it and dyed some stuff in it today – and you couldn’t even tell – the dye just rinsed right out (phew!).  I love that it’s so deep.

But what I love most about my sink is my faucet – I never knew I’d be so giddy about a faucet!!

 It’s true love.  Do you know what that is??  THE most amazing faucet.  Moen sent the product to me to review, and I have nothing but praises to give it.  Their motto is “buy it for looks, buy it for life” and that’s so true – I love the looks, but even more I love the solid feel and that I know this is going to last forever.  I love the one-handle level for on and off and hot and cold – that was a must in choosing.

It is the Ascent Classic and you can read all about it HERE.  My favorite feature is the Reflex system, which is offered on several of Moen faucets.  It means the end of the faucet pulls out, and then can pull itself back in – seriously!  My old faucet had a sprayer on the side – which is bad enough, but on top of that, you’d need to feed the hose back in.  This is quite the opposite. 

More about Reflex System:

Easiest to Release

Compared to any other pulldown design, Reflex makes Moen pulldown faucets at least 40%
easier to unlatch and extend*.

Exceptional Range of Motion

Combined with an ultra-flexible hose, the spray wand swivels to offer a wide range of
motion and effortless, natural response.

Self-retracting Action

Only pulldown faucets with the Reflex System will retract to the docked position from
any distance without additional assistance.

 There is a toggle switch on the end that goes from regular stream to more of a light sprayer/rinse mode:

I feel like I’m basking in luxury any time I’m using my faucet. 

So, I know you are wishing you had one.  And look – tada!:

No, that is not the old leftover box from my faucet – it’s a box containing another Ascent Classic stainless one-handle faucetfor one of you – eek!!!  I will send it from my garage straight to you.  Moen is not a sponsor of the giveaway.

    I love the look of that faucet. It would be lovely in my kitchen. I also am loving some of the bathroom faucets on the moen site.

  2. says

    I’ve been following you since the braided barrette post in 2010. I used to make them when I was little and give them to my friends. :) What a great blog you’ve got!!! Thank you for your hard work!

    What a timely giveaway! We’re in the middle of building our own home…I just finished the wiring with my husband’s help. We’ll be needing a faucet soon. :) I’ve been planning on purchasing a Moen faucet very similar to this one. Winning would be that much sweeter! We’re also using Moen Eva faucets in our new bathrooms.

  4. says

    I love the design your own kitchen gadget … I am pretty sure I will waste a lot of my time dreaming using that nifty function. :D


  5. says

    that faucet looks awesome! moen has so many neat styles to choose from. we are building a house and have been looking at faucets. that would be great to win!!! thanks for the chance.

    I love the moen bathroom faucets most.. Although my kitchen faucet is broken and needs to be replaced, so at this point.. a kitchen faucet is on the top of my “love” list!

  8. says

    Thank you for sponsoring this giveaway. What fun! I have had a new sink in my garage for TWO years! I’ve been having to save up for the faucet and countertops to redo our kitchen. It’s in pretty sad shape. Love this faucet. :)

    I checked out the Moen site. Very neat! I liked the inspiration pictures – fun to drool over. :)

  9. says

    I like the Extensa in Glacier, it is similar to what I have now, except my current one is a Kohler and it leaks and will need to be replaced sometime this year. So I could really use a new faucet.

  10. says

    I follow and I like the styles of the faucets. they are a “clean and classy” look! Not too much going on, simple and functional with style.

  11. says

    Wow, way nice giveaway! I went to the Moen site and I love the Oil rubbed bronze ioDIGITAL™ vertical spa. Wouldn’t that be luxury! :)

  12. says

    Moen… oh moen… the household name of quality and style! I love this faucet! (and mine is leaking like crazy and now all my floor boards are warped so a new one is a must :) i love all their stuff but I am particularly leaning toward the oil rubbed bronze hand held shower head

  13. says

    I’d love that faucet- and I’m in love with Moen eco-friendly shower heads. The ones in our house are older and not water-wise at all. They’re next on the replacement list!

  14. says

    Everything on the Moen website looks pretty awesome, but I think I like the ioDIGITAL shower systems the best! I love how you can just press a button and hop in the shower. I especially like the spa systems though they all look very high tech and would take me a while to figure out how to use them. I imagine it would be super relaxing to unwind with a spa system like those at the end of the day

  15. says

    I just discovered your blog through a random google search and I really love the crafts you shared :) Now I am a follower!! By follower, you do mean twitter right? Or is there another way to show that I am following your blog?

  16. says

    I love the kitchen update! My Mom has a Reflex faucet, and I just love using it. I love Moen, and I’m glad they are making saftey equiptment look good.

    Thanks for the pics and the giveaway.

  17. says

    Love the Anabel faucet – stainless steel. I’m so in the mode right now – our kitchen faucet just broke. Great new faucet in your kitchen.

  18. says

    We just moved to a new house and are having to redo the kitchen- I’ve been dreaming of a moen faucet, but can’t afford them because they’re so awesome! Love your blog!

  19. says

    I love the Moen kitchen faucets! Really like the streamlined look of the sprayer being part of the faucet. I have been dreaming of a new kitchen faucet for some time…..would be soooo nice!
