  • Half Note Cottage – Sneak Peek

    I can’t even tell you how hard Jessica has been working on her “Half Note” cottage to try and get as much done as possible before Eric comes home on Wednesday. I’ll post a full reveal of the Kitchen this week, but until then, here’s a sneak peek at some of the elements she’s been implementing over there…

    A $10 TV stand, primed and painted white, then lightly distressed…

    Bedding that she’s had in a storage box, for over a year…

    An itty bitty lamp, cute as can be…

    A $15, cottage-style coffee table from the Salvation Army…

    Which now, looks like this, after sanding down the top, and applying some Provencial-colored stain (from Lowes) to the top. The legs got a coat of white paint, and some distressing…

    She also purchased two Pottery Barn striped pillow covers on Ebay for just $19. They were delivered with the original price tags still on them…they sold in stores for $33 EACH! Boy did she score! The couch came from the Salvation Army for $20. The creamy-white slipcover used to be mine. The throw pillow inserts that came with the sofa just happened to fit perfectly inside her new Pottery Barn pillow covers, which was great. She also picked up two $5 navy blue throw pillows from Walmart…

    My white table and chairs have a new home in the Half Note kitchen…

    Remember this jewelry box, priced at $59, on PotteryBarn.com?

    And remember when I blogged about this one, at TJ Maxx, for just $12.99?

    Well, Jessica scored the brown version of it at TJ Maxx the other day for just 5 bucks on clearance! (The white one was marked down too!)

    It’s all coming together, little by little.

    Stay tuned for the Kitchen reveal this week!
