I have said before that our house is a builder’s basic house.  There was no added upgrades or really any molding to give it character.  All the character was added by yours truly.  I love my home with every ounce of my being and have slowly made changes to make it mine. All of our bathrooms have the basic Moen Chateau which is at the very bottom of the food chain of faucets.  But I did get a little creative with it and added some snarky faucet words to it.


I got the opportunity to receive the Boardwalk Spot Resist bath faucet.  I have another Moen Lindley Spot Resist faucet in my kitchen and I love it.  Literally it never gets spots on it.  I do wash it obviously but even dirt and grime are hard to see on it.  Love, Love, Love it! Anywho the only thing I was nervous about was the install process.  I had never done a plumbing project in my life.  It wasn’t without a little pain and frustration but I did it!  Can I tell you how backbreaking leaning under a cabinet is?  I give mad props to plumbers.  


It took me about an hour to uninstall my old faucet and about 2 hours to install the new one.  Now that I have had practice I am pretty sure I could do it in half that time.


So now I can check off attempting a plumbing project off my bucket list.  I saw, I DIYed, I conquered.  And can I tell you…removing the old faucet was disgusting!


The part that was the hardest was making sure everything was tight.  And doing that laying on the bottom of the vanity made it especially difficult.  But look at my shiny new faucet?  It looks much more modern now.  If you are looking for this faucet it is available at Lowes.

  1. Way to go! I have the Delta builder’s basic faucets — and I was just thinking about replacing one this morning!

    Great job! 🙂

  2. We picked out the same faucets when we built our house. I love them and they really are spot free.

  3. This is so funny to me. I just opened this in my email. . . yesterday my husband installed our new kitchen sink faucet. . . guess what kind it is? Yep, the Moen spot resistant in in the brushed stainless steel. I really like it. Thanks for sharing again.

  4. Am I the only one having problems with the Lindley soap dispenser? I love the faucet but the soap dispenser does not work properly. I have considered contacting Moen but haven’t done so yet.
