Living Room Decorating

The Lettered Cottage Living Room Decor

I haven’t spent too much time decorating our living room yet because we hope to be doing some construction projects in there later this year. That said, the house was extra quiet this morning (Kevin had a date with his Dad), and I was in the mood to do a little jooshing. Or zhushing. Or […]

Cottage Style Stuff

Lettered Cottage Style Kitchen Sugarboo Art

It’s been a shuffle-y couple of months around here, but now that the wall paint is dry, we’ve started putting things back into place. There’s still a fireplace to paint (Simply White), and tile to (temporarily) cover up… …but things are definitely starting to feel more like us around here. I’ve had the shelf above […]

I’m helping my best friend put some finishing touches her son’s nautical-themed big boy bedroom right now, and gosh am I having fun scouring the internet for inspiration!

Lettered Cottage- Coffee Table

The first time I saw this coffee table in a Pottery Barn magazine, it was love at first sight. But priced at $599, I knew I had better start looking for something comparable (but priced waaay lower) at the local flea. Finally, after some intense searching, I spotted this antique childrens schoolhouse table for $125. […]

The “Antique Shop” pillow coordinates beautifully with Fallon’s “Flower Shop” and “Market” pillows. The base of this pillow is a buttery yellow-and-white polka […]

Dropcloth Drapes

I finally figured out how to get 96″ tall curtains, that look like the ones from Pottery Barn in the photo above, for less than $10.00 a panel. Use canvas painters dropcloths! I got mine at Lowes, and I LOVE them.They were $9.99 per dropcloth, and they each measure 6 feet wide by 9 feet […]
