To be sure, this double sink was never the house's best feature, but it has now been transformed into the landscape of a silty delta since an inept workman came to mend - mend? - the furnace: he drew six buckets of water from it, thereby triggering the low-water cut-off device (and hence turning off the boiler completely) - something that we only discovered after he left (and yes, we did find him via Angie's List. Harrrrummpphh). And we only discovered, too, this staining of the sink. Not that it was an elegant shiny object to start off with - it was covered in dull paint stains from the previous family's artistic projects - but it didn't broadcast a message of Indefinable Problem before now.
