Aren’t those fun?! I love this stuff, and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to “get together” with so many folks in this way every year. I’m looking forward to more e-partying next Tuesday and Thursday at Centsational Girl and Southern Hospitality and hope to see you there, too!

Ooh! And speaking of next Tuesday, my first episode for The Design Network will post that day, too- and I’m so excited to show you what has become of this kitchen:

I’m not sure exactly what time the episode will post, but you can sign up via email at TheDesignNetwork.com if you’d like to be notified when it does. We’re starting episode 2 at our place tomorrow morning, and first up on the agenda is this big ol’ sheetrocked wall:

The Lettered Cottage living room

I see wood planks in it’s (very near) future! 😀

    Can’t wait to see what you do with the planks! I would love to plank one of the walls in my bedroom but am scared to take the plunge. :)

    What a welcome to Autumn fun batch of projects! Love the blackboard runner in so many ways & for so many uses. Very potluck & wine tasting friendly year around! So delighted with post and looking forward to your Design Network Debut. Had hoped to see the 2 of you get picked up by HGTV. Always loved the interplay between The Room by Room twosome though they were not a couple. Reinforced the concept of a “couple” working well together with humor & patience to get a terrific finished result from a project shared. Thinking you two may still be working in that direction. Best to you both always!

      Thanks, Heather! 😀
      We’re excited to be working together with TDN, too! Kevin felt more comfortable behind the camera this time around, so he’s doing all the filming and editing of these episodes, along with our friend Billy. Billy did catch Kevin on camera a couple of times though- chipping in on the manual labor and helping me stage the space for the big reveal. 😀 It’s been a blast to work with family and friends and I’m so thankful for the experience!

    I’m thinking you painted the cabinets lighter and went with new wood floors. Granite was in nice shape so you probably kept that. Can’t wait to see it!

    I LOVED this post…well who am I kidding, I love all your posts:) BUT I really am loving this chalk art, and have been playing around with mine…beautiful fall decor. LOVED this Layla. AND cannot wait to see that kitchen re~do!!!

    Love the leaf garland-what an easy idea. BTW-I have not heard anything in awhile about the show in October at The Waters. Is it still on? If so, can you provide the details again. I really hope I can make it.
