• The Cottage Next Door – Let the Re-do Begin!


    Over the next 6 weeks, my friend, Jessica, will be re-painting the inside of the small, yellow cottage next door to our Lettered Cottage. I will give her lots of design guidance along the way. If the weather is nice, maybe I’ll leave my Office window open, so that if she has a question, or needs motivation, we can converse back and forth. :-)

    When her “other half” (Eric) returns home in six weeks, he’ll begin working on the outside. Scraping, painting, landscaping….the whole kit-and-kaboodle.

    Here’s Jessica’s game plan-

    Week 1: Living Room

    Front Door

    Living Room BEFORE Living Room BEFORE 2

    Week 2: Kitchen

    Week 3: Den

    Week 4: Master Bedroom

    Week 5: Bathroom

    Week 6: Office

    She will purchase everything for the house from yard sales, Salvation Army’s, flea markets and Ikea. So the whole place will be decorated on an extremely low budget. She’s buying a 5 gallon bucket of primer and a 5 gallon bucket of paint (on sale this week at Home Depot), which she’ll use to paint every room the same color, to save money and create the illusion of more space.

    Stay tuned for updated photos each week, which will showcase Jessica’s progress. It’s going to be quite the charming little transformation!

    I think this cottage needs a name….any ideas? :-)
