This post has been 10 months in the making and I’m SO EXCITED that it’s finally here… it’s reveal day for our kitchen renovation!! As you may remember, our kitchen used to be dark, dingy, and very, very sad. But now? It is bright, fresh, and oh-so-inviting. Sarah from Room For Tuesday designed the most perfect space ever for us — seriously, I am totally wow-ed. I’m beyond obsessed with our kitchen remodel, so let’s dig into all of the details. Get a coffee and a snack… this is a long post!
Many thanks to our sponsor Delta in this kitchen renovation. All opinions are my own and always will be! Thanks for supporting the content that keeps Jojotastic going.
It’s no secret that I love living in a tech-savvy, well-connected home. In fact, one of the first things I did when I moved in was swap our thermostat to a smart one! So now that it’s time to put finishing touches on our kitchen, I can’t help but think of ways to incorporate technology into it. Thanks to my friends at Delta, our kitchen faucet features some amazing innovations that you’ve just gotta know about.
Many thanks to our sponsor Milgard Windows & Doors in this kitchen renovation. All opinions are my own and always will be! Thanks for supporting the content that keeps Jojotastic going.
Remember wayyy back, about 10 months ago, when I shared before photos of our kitchen and said the only thing that’s staying is our garden window? Welp, I changed my mind!! After seeing all of the new, materials going into the space, I knew a replacement was needed. It just looked so dated and sad. Thankfully, Milgard Windows & Doors reached out to partner… almost as though they were reading my mind. In one weekend, we swapped out the old one and installed a modern casement window with clean lines. I’m so happy we did!
Many thanks to our sponsor Polycor in this kitchen renovation. All opinions are my own and always will be! Thanks for supporting the content that keeps Jojotastic going.
I know I said we’re in the home stretch in my last post… but now we are REALLY there! Sarah from Room for Tuesday, our amazing designer, told us that once the countertops went in, the space would feel more finished. She was not joking. Right before I left for LA last week, our fabricators installed our gorgeous Polycor stone countertops and backsplashes. There are no words for how beautiful they look. I have been impatiently waiting to share this video and photos with you, so you know I’m stoked today!
I have wanted to share this post every spring since I started our vegetable garden. But every year I hold back because I know the photos aren’t the prettiest. I finally got over that fear and decided it was time. Gardening is like a meditation for me and such a big part of what I enjoy doing on the weekends. I just had to share with you. Plus, I get asked a lot about our garden when I share it on Instagram Stories, so it was definitely time to share how I plan my PNW vegetable garden, what I planted, and resources for Pacific Northwest gardeners.
Ok, I know it might feel like our kitchen renovation is dragging on… that’s probably because it actually IS. It’s April now and we started back in August. So yeah, 9 months… my bff joked that I could have had a baby in this time and she’s not wrong. Trust me, the joke is not lost on us! Anyways, I wanted to share yet another progress report with you guys… and thank you for your encouragement, kind words, and following during this ridiculous remodel journey! You know that I only keep it real with you, so the fact that you’ve been so incredibly supportive through this whole ordeal means the world to both me and Sean.
When I watch this video, it really does feel like we’re in the home stretch. If there is one piece of this massive kitchen-shaped puzzle that has been missing, it’s the sink. After 6 months of washing dishes either with the hose (it is currently 22 degrees in Seattle) or in the bathtub… our new farmhouse sink is positively a dream.
