Old Doors from Southern Accents | The Lettered Cottage

Hi! Remember those old doors I blogged about a couple of weeks ago? They came from a house called Cliff Side Manor that was built in 1884 in Fayetteville, TN… …and they used to be the “walls” of a very deep doorway…sort of like this: A fire consumed the house in 2004, but our doors and whatever […]

Dining Room Update – DIY Twine Chandelier Chain Cover

DIY Chandelier Chain Cover-Up | The Lettered Cottage

Remember that twine-covered chandelier pole we ordered through our (interior designer) neighbor, Cindy, last year? The one we added to the chandelier in our sunroom? Well, that one normally costs $49.50 through Aidan Gray, and even though we were able to order ours for $20 from Cindy, we were determined to come up with an even less expensive DIY […]

Hallway/Laundry Area Makeover – Before and After

Barnlight Electric Light | The Lettered Cottage

You may remember when I blogged about our hallway before… Almost every single bit of it was tan. The trim, the walls, the ceiling, the cabinetry…even the glass part of the light fixture was a light tan color. So when the folks at Dutch Boy asked if they could come shoot a video for their new campaign […]

Adoption Update – Yesterdays

Built To Blossom T-shirt at BlogThreads.com and TheLetteredCottage.net

“Oh, I believe…in yesterday.” -Paul McCartney *** Our adoption adventure officially began in December of 2012, (note: I’m calling it an adoption “adventure” vs. an adoption “process” to help keep my focus on the Wonder vs. the wait lately. ) and we’ve done a lot of Looking, Leaning, and Listening throughout the past 641 yesterdays. It was right […]

Sunroom Update – Hiding The Litter Box

The Lettered Cottage | Cat Room To Hide Litter Box

Raise your hand if your dog likes to get into your cat’s food bowl and/or litter box? Ours sure does. We’ve had that gate in front of “Kit-Cat’s closet” for the past year, but I’ve been determined to figure something else out. Something a little less…..baby-gate-in-front-of-a-cracked-door. That closet also houses our tools, craft supplies, random “stuff”, vacuum cleaner, […]
