grey bedroom inspiration

 I know I mentioned that we are working on our master bedroom. 
Unfortunately it is still not quite complete.
So, today I took some time to look for a little more design inspiration.

I happened upon this at Serena and Lily.

I really like these fabrics. 
 I especially love the upholstered bed and the chair.
 Hmm we'll just have to wait and see....

I still have not forgotten my first love from Restoration Hardware.

our latest updates

Here are a few of our weekend updates from last weekend's decorating marathon. 
I was so busy working away on our little cottage.  I ran out of time to post. 
So here goes....

Here is the Front Porch reveal. 
(It is my fav!) 


My brother Michael donated this fantastic pillow to the cause.

Remember the old brown pedestal table that I showed you in the before photos post???
I picked it up at one of my favorite flea markets on a recent junkin trip for only $18.
Well I painted it Stealth Jet by Behr in eggshell.  I love it!
I painted the floors an Ultra White by Behr also in eggshell.

Didn't it turn out great!
I actually had these West Elm chairs that were from my apartment living days.
I still have a few finishing touches to add, curtains,stenciled numbers,  etc. 
I will share those once I get them done! 

 For now I totally love the vibe it sets as you enter our home! 
Now to create that same modern cottage living style all through our home.

That's not all!

On Saturday my friend Cathy came over to help work on our bedroom. 
 It's not quit finished yet.  So, I will wait to post pics of this one. 
Thank you so much for all your help Cathy!

On Sunday my brother Michael showed up with paintin clothes and paint in hand!
He was ready to freshen up our dining room. 

Here is the Dining Room before.
I liked the blue, but it was just a little to dark for this room.

Here is the Dining Room after. 

Thanks Michael for all you did!
What do you think? 
Not too bad for one weekend.

Finally it's time to work on our fixer upper...

Busy weekend planned here at the Corson Cottage! 

It's time to tackle this bathroom eyesore...
As you can see I could hardly wait to get started.... I started sanding and
almost forgot to take my before shot to share with you.

Next we'll be moving on to the front porch....

So, it's only Friday for now let's start there!  Be back soon....

I was looking for a few pointers from an experienced blogger. 
So, I emailed Shelley from House of Smiths yesterday to ask for any words of wisdom.
 She was so kind to respond back and give a newbie a few pointers to the world of blogging!
Thanks Shelley!!!  She is so sweet!

vintage grain sacks

Thought I would share with you my newest creations.........

I made these pillows covered in vintage grain sacks and flour and
sugar sacks to sell at market days! 

Unfortunately not a lot of sales at market days...
but I left them at Dwellings hoping to sell them there.

I have to be honest it will not break my heart if they all don't sell! 
I am in love with them!!! 
And what a bargain I only paid $4.50 per sack a total deal!

I must has been a while since I busted out the sewing machine! 
I even surprised myself a little!
