just another mopsy, flopsy drop cloth cover

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, […]

Cottage Fix floppy drop cloth chaircover

Happy Weekend Cottage Fix friends. I’m blogging in today with my latest attempt at sprucing up our family room. Aside from a newish sofa, it’s sort of the land of the leftovers. It’s furnished with two overstuffed mismatched chairs: one from a yard sale and then this one here is a hand me down. I brought home this drop cloth to create a floppy casual chair cover, I’m planning on a second drop cloth for the other chair to tie […]

cozy new French-ish chair

Good morning Cottage Fix friends! Another day, another Cottage Fix chair. It’s a French-ish sort of chair upholstered in a textured flax fabric and it makes me smile. Yes, it’s a real charmer that’s for sure. Funny enough, it’s the one and only piece of upholstered furniture in the house. That would be mostly because of the kiddos, Miss Paisley, and my love of a good Pinot Noir. I haven’t decided if it will be for sitting in or just […]

vintage mirrors and bright pink peonies

Salutations! I’ve been at it again, shuffling things around, up to shenanigans, or what Honey likes to call “up to no good!” He’ll be happy to know that this collection of vintage mirrors was created with the ones I had already acquired on another day when I was knee deep in some other shenanigans. I just brought them all together to hang out and get to know one another here on the big blank wall in our living room—the big […]

the JAXX beanbag for serious lounging

Salutations Cottage Fix friends! I’m slowly claiming back the cottage inch by inch and room by room. And with each space I get cleared out, I feel just a bit lighter. The bathroom remodel has been put on hold for a spell due to the longest, coldest winter ever, and I’ve been cleaning out the spaces where we were storing our tools and supplies. We seem to have accumulated several small to largish piles in way too many rooms and […]

a casual cottage sun porch with a vintage rocker

Happy Weekend Cottage Fix Friends! I’m blogging in today with a vintage wicker rocking chair update and some cozy comfort on our sun porch. Do you remember that sweet little rocker I found this past summer at Class and Trash? The one that is incredibly tiny and in need of a seat cushion and a good scrub. I always seem to be bring home things that need to be cleaned — I wonder what that means? So I brought her […]

cottage fix breaks the rules!

Design rules that is, let’s not get too crazy! I’m shaking things up left and right here today at Cottage Fix. Oh joy! Who says that a chair is just for sitting? Not me! So when Modani Modern Furniture posted 5 Design Rules to Break, my first thought was “huh, I wonder what rules I’m breakin’ around here.” I then began to look around our little cottage, with its old wooden floors, shabby furniture, wicker, and lace, for rules that I regularly […]

accessories and road kill

I’m sure you’ve been losing sleep wondering where those bright blue accessories from the sun porch have disappeared to — I know I have.  Painting the sun porch white has created sort of a ricochet effect throughout our little cottage and everything is all mixed up and turned around!  It happens! Well, there they are.  I decided to use the wicker chairs in the dining room all dolled up with the bright blue floral pillows. I mixed in a couple […]
