Cottage Fix crates and candlelight

Hello there Cottage Fix friends. It feels like it’s been raining here for days now, which is just about true.

There are really only two, a daybed and a media cabinet – both vintage pieces. Since we rarely have company and the kids have overtaken this room, I thought this petite daybed would work nicely.
