Cottage Fix something old, something new

Hola Cottage Fix friends! Hope you’re doing well during this busy time of year with all the hustle and bustle. I’m so excited for Thanksgiving and Christmas I can hardly stand it. I mostly keep finding myself fantasizing about the food and drifting into a happy daze; smoked turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn casserole, and a tall glass of wine are a few of the traditional favorites at our family get together. And for some reason I always seem […]

pink

Good morning Cottage Fix friends! How’s things? We’re in the midst of crazy town here, always are this time of year I guess. With school back in full swing and both kiddos participating in after-school activities it can be hard to keep up with everyone’s schedules. Just call me momager. Wink! I worked on this pale pink chair all last week and it’s finally finished. There was a lot of carting it in and out to the garage and waiting […]

and something pink…

Why hello there Cottage Fix crew! I’m blogging in today with another chalk paint project, this time in a lovely shade of pale pink. It’s the softest quietest shade of pink called Antoinette by Annie Sloan. I also used this color on my heirloom dresser last year and loved how it turned out. So I was sort of dying to try something in this shade of pink for downstairs. This little piano stool was the lucky winner! Grin.Just like most of […]

chippy, shabby, chippy, shabby blue paint trunk

Hola Cottage Fix friends! I hope your summer is truck, truckin’ along good. We’re quite busy here with just the regular day-to-day kind of stuff. I always try to wrangle together a beach day when we can fit one in, usually on the weekend. Along with much of the East Coast, we’re in the midst of a nightmare heatwave and I’m about done with it. The afternoons are almost unbearable as the temperatures soar and the air gets thick and […]

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, […]

architectural salvage and fluffy white bedding

Salutations! I’m blogging in today to share with you what I’ve been getting together in our bedroom, something I’ve had up my sleeve for some time. Nothing says fresh to me like a cloud of fluffy white bedding floating atop crisp white sheets. This shenanigan of mine all started with a Simply Shabby Chic duvet cover and shams I found at Target for 75% off. What could I do? I really had no choice! That bad boy was in my […]

How to get that easy breezy cottage look on a tiny budget; 5 ways

You don’t need to break the bank to add a few simple elements into your space to give it an easy breezy cottage look and a welcoming feel. And you won’t wind up eating Raman noodles and can soup for months to afford the look; although I must confess I’ve been there, done that for a darling […]

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 […]
