Week of the Cottage!

Heard of it?  I’m so sorry if you are on cottage overload, but she is so happy with all the attention she is getting this week.  Between being featured in a magazine that you can buy at a store to having star bloggers post about it–she is sure to get a big head.  But she wasn’t always so pretty…

Crazy, huh?  Those bottom cabinets and the pine floors are original.  It is amazing what a little paint and polish will do.

Many thanks to the bloggers who have loved on the cottage this week:

Lori May Interiors

Shannon Berrey Design

The Lettered Cottage

Southern Hospitality

Thank you so much for your kindness!

See over there on the right sidebar?  You can click to see “The Best of the Cottage” where I share the best money-saving and cottage style tips from the whole house renovation we did.  If you want the whole cottage tour chock full of beforesie shots and (excruciatingly detailed) commentary, here is a self-guided walk through:


Living Room & Kitchen

Master Bedroom

Downstairs Living Room

Second Bedroom


That should give you enough reading material for the long weekend, ha.  Those posts are two years old, and it’s so interesting to me to see how the place has evolved since then.  Always tweaking…

Have a wonderful weekend, friends, and have fun!

    The before and after shots always amaze me. Doesn’t look like the same house, inside or out. Come stay with me for awhile and bring your budget tips (and Chris). We need a facelift over here.
