After almost a month, y'all probably gave up on me, but I'm back. It's been a crazy few weeks with the cottage remodel and the new puppies.
This is still very much a work-in-progress, but we're making headway!
Sea grass has replaced old carpet in 3 bedrooms, 2 hallways and a den.
Granite counter tops have been installed in the kitchen, as well as new pendant lights over the sink. There is also new recessed lighting in the ceiling. Previously, the kitchen was lit with several old track lights. Cabinets will be painted soon. New stainless appliances are in place and ready to roll!
Here's a glimpse at the guest room with its new french doors out to the pool.
The dining room received three new windows and a new door, too. This room also goes out to the pool. The wonderful table is one of my few genuine antiques. I'm crazy about the scalloped edge and the barley twist legs. Somebody told me it's called a gingerbread table. Can anybody give me any info about it?
My pine hutch fits just perfectly on this wall.
That's all for today!
I just realized that I never shared the names of the new puppies. Here they are:
I have an 80 year-old cottage, which apparently had a rain barrel/water cistern at one time. The bracket is still intact, and it casts an interesting shadow in the corner of the house, about mid-morning, each day.
