New Doorway Trim

Finally got around to adding the trim to the doorway we decided to take a reciprocating saw to a few months ago…

Isn’t it funny what a little trim will do? What a tedious, “un-fun” way to totally finish off the look of a room.

Here are some more shots of the trim, and beadboard, we added to the space to give it more cottage appeal:

I’ve been slowly piecing together frames for the picture ledge. Now I just need to get the four black and white prints ordered.

I thought I’d see what the room looked like with my flea-market bench under the window. I still haven’t purchased the fabric to make curtains yet, so excuse the naked window…

Just for fun, I threw some accessories together to make my table look a little prettier for these pictures…

    I love everything about your little cottage. Who would have thought a screen door would add so much character! Love it!

    Everything is looking so beautiful! Would you mind letting me know where you got your blinds? I've been looking for some like that & have been having trouble finding any I like! Thanks :)

    Layla, I just love watching your home transform.
    I passed an award on to you over at my blog. Come by and pick it up when you have a chance.

    Wow Layla – it all looks so crisp and beautiful (and so not trampled on by kiddoes – can you tell I’m in a “crazy with my kids” phase?)

    You really do have an amazing ability to transform. It is very inspiring.

    I hope you feel better soon.
