Good summer morning to you Cottage Fix friends! It looks like another moppy drop cloth chair cover has made its way into our shabby little cottage with the pokey little rooms, creaky wooden floors, and fresh summer ivy sneaking up the the exterior of the sun porch. I’m in love with this super easy, super cheap look that adds effortless cottage style to our living room without a lot of fuss. When I say easy—buy a drop cloth, wash it, drape it over an overstuffed chair. I’m sayin’ easy!
And since Miss Paisley seems to take over any new seating I bring in, I’m thrilled to say it’s also dog friendly. The funny thing is this chair isn’t new at all, and I’m not sure why a drop cloth makes it so much more appealing to her. It’s really quite an old lady of a chair that I picked up at a yard sale about four years ago now. It lived in the family room until recently— and Paisley never jumped up on it, not once. I moved it into the living room, covered it with this pretty drop cloth, and she’s been on it ever since. She likes the new look I guess. Grin! And now she gets up on the drop cloth chair like this in the family room too. Dogs are so funny like that.Well, I’m off to pack up a picnic for the beach and it’s going to be a scorcher! That hot and muggy Virginia summer air settled in this past week and the cicadas are singing their song. It’s been all T–shirts and flip flops for me, light salad lunches, and ice cream at night. The garden is growing tall, weeds and all, with each sun filled day. I plucked a few daisies to cheer things up in here with there happy yellow centers, it’s way too hot for weeding though. We’re planning a day trip to the beach for a picnic lunch of Cuban sandwiches and watermelon and a cool dip into the salty waves. I’m looking forward to the therapeutics of the salt and sun.
And she’s out…
Have a lovely Sunday and thanks so much for visiting!
