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.
