Coastal Cottage Kitchen Makeover

After a couple of months of renovating, we are happy to say that our coastal cottage kitchen makeover is complete!  If you recall, we were going for a bright and earthy vibe as described in our our coastal cottage kitchen design plans. We’ll be sharing the entire completed kitchen next week, so stay tuned! In the meantime, here’s a little sneak peek:

Guys, check out that gorgeous faucet (insert many heart eyes here)! We were beyond excited to again partner with Delta Faucet Canada for this makeover. If you recall, last year we incorporated beautiful new fixtures from their Ashlyn Collection in our Beach Themed Bathroom makeover at the cottage.

This time around we selected this stunning single handle pull-down faucet in a Venetian Bronze finish from the Cassidy Collection.  This faucet gives our new coastal cottage kitchen that little farmhouse vibe which we were hoping for. We love the contrast of the dark finish next to the white counters and modern stainless steel apron sink. Moreover, the faucet has Touch2O technology – just touch any part of the faucet to turn it on and off! So cool and perfect when your hands are covered in sugar.

Materials Needed for DIY Sugar Scrub:

How to Make Lavender Sugar Scrub:

  1. Mix the raw cane sugar together with the pure virgin olive oil until it is well blended.
  2. Add 3-4 drops of lavender oil to the mixture and blend together.
  3. Pour into the resealable container.

When you’re ready to use the scrub, simply add a spoonful into your palm and massage into your hands, then rinse away.

And with our new faucet’s Touch2O Technology a simple touch anywhere on the spout or handle will start and stop the flow of water. Less mess! Washing your hands shouldn’t involve making a mess of your faucet. This added feature really comes in handy whenever you’re working in the kitchen- I’m kind of excited about washing the dishes now :).

Once you’re done using the sugar scrub, be sure the seal the container tightly. There’s no need for a hand moisturizer after using this hydrating DIY sugar scrub.

We hope you enjoyed this sneak peek into our coastal kitchen makeover! For more project ideas using lavender be sure to explore our easy lavender sachets sewing project, lavender and driftwood wreath and these dried lavender jewelry pendants.
