6 Day Kitchen Reno // Resources

JULIA AND GARRETT’S KITCHEN

The #6daykitchenreno is done, which means that I get to share my favorite part of every renovation with you guys today, the ‘before and afters’. But before I get to that, I’ll share all sources with you. And if you want to know more about the #6daykitchen, you can read up here: intro, design, construction, and reveal.

Like all of our renovations, I mixed high and low finishes in this kitchen. We splurged on the sconce, appliances, countertops, and tile (due to the sheer quantity). But we were able to offset some of those costs by buying budget hardware, stock cabinets (which we painted ourselves), and an inexpensive sink. I invariably forget a resource or two, so let me know in the comment section if you want to know where anything else came from.

Now about those ‘before and afters’. This renovation yielded some pretty great ones, if I do say so myself. In a matter of 7 days, we took this space from dark and demo’d (which the homeowners did before we arrived) to bright and beautiful. Have a look:

Better, right?!

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this renovation. Any materials you love or would have picked differently?

p.s. I’m obsessing over this stack of textiles.  I’d love them all in any (or all) of the farmhouse bedrooms.

p.p.s. Did you guys see Studio McGee’s Windsong house reveal this week? It had me at the copper gutter on the eve (and then the front deck and then the great room and then the kitchen island and…)

p.p.p.s. A few of my favorite kitchens this week on Pinterest: 1, 2, and 3. Plus, a reader recently sent me this photo as inspiration for our staircase, and oh my goodness I love it! Thanks, Geraldine!

  1. Wow! Love everything, but I have my eye on that tile for a future renovation. How did instillation go?

  2. I’ve been looking for a white undermount (not apron front!) sink. Where did you find yours and how do you like it?

  3. FelicityinPortland says:

    Which type of cabinet did you use from GS cabinets? Finish? And also where is the countertop from?

    Great work.

    • We used the basic white shaker style cabinets and then did a light sand and painted them (GS’s white color is an off-white, cream tone). Countertops are from Pius – they are a white Quartz with a little bit of gray marbling.

  4. Could you give more details on the countertops? Brand/color? Those look like exactly what I’m looking for. Thanks!

    • The countertops were from Pius in Seattle. They are Quartz and I don’t have the exact product, but they are about 95% white with a little bit of gray marbling int them.

  5. Christine says:

    Can you share the information for the kitchen faucet?

  6. lori boccato says:

    Can you add resources for the sink and faucet? Love them both!

  7. The link for #4, the faucet is missing. Also, where’d you get your white undermount sink??

  8. Kristen Sprague says:

    Looking to hear what type of paint you used on the cabinets…ie Alkyd? Oil? Latex (guessing no) Thanks!

  9. Love your style and doing it with kids… Amazing

  10. I’m in the middle of planning for a kitchen remodel. I love the Delta faucet in Champagne Bronze but I’m wondering if you used the matching strainer or just went with a regular strainer? It’s totally random but every little detail seems to matter in kitchen remodels. This is my first, so I’d love to hear from a kitchen remodel pro!

  11. Looks amazing! Quick question (a little late to the post!) just ordered the faucet and hardware linked and noticed they are slightly different colors. Did you notice that? The pictures don’t appear to have a difference of color was just wondering. Thanks!!

    I love the Ford sconce and you said you did your kitchen in 6 days but the sconce says 2-4 to order. How did you get past that?

    • Planing ahead! While the renovation took us 7 days, there were a couple months of planning ahead of time. Nothing too serious, but I ran through inspiration and layout with Julia and Garrett and we tried to have ALL the finishes onsite (well the stuff we knew wasn’t at Home Depot) the day we started. Of course that didn’t happen, so anything not onsite (mainly tiles and flooring) we had to use precious time to run around and buy. If I had one recommendation for a quick remodel, it would be: plan, plan, plan!!!!!
