cottage fix loves prairie rose!

Hola Cottage Fix crew! I’m blogging in today with this gorgeous prairie rose fabric I ordered on super sale. It’s from the Rachel Ashwell online shop. There are so many beautiful fabrics on discount right now in their sale section, unfortunately prairie rose went back to regular price. I was lucky enough to snag up enough for pillows while it was still cheap. This is one of my all time favorite fabrics, and when I saw it on sale I […]

Aubusson blue painted hutch

Salutations! How about this lovely shade of Aubusson blue, one of my favorite shades of blue I think. It’s a deep rich blue with just a hint of green. I went back and forth about painting this old vintage hutch of mine. But after I finished dousing the dining room walls in this soft taupe, I thought a shot of color would liven it up. One of my go to furniture painting tricks is to take my Annie Sloan chalk […]

decorating mojo… raspberry floral and taupe

Hola Cottage Fix friends!! Long time no see. Well, it’s about time I got back to it I think. It was a long winter for me with a relentless bout of family illnesses (just one after another) and snow (not a fan!). And then the illnesses trickled right on into Spring with Paisley our sweet Schnauzer pup. I’d like to forecast smooth sailing from here on out—fingers crossed. The past couple of days have been all sunshine, wellness, and good […]

stripping the dining room table

Salutations! For the past year or so I’ve been milling over the idea of purchasing a new natural wood table (when I say new, of course I mean an old rustic beauty that’s new to me). One that has history and would warm up our dining room. One with a natural wood tone and a weathered patina worn proudly like a scar that accompanies a manly man’s tale. Something with a bit of soul and character with the warmth of […]

vintage mantel

Salutations! So what kinds of goodies do you like to look for when you’re out treasure hunting? Is it that perfect weathered patina, or something that you can revive with paint? Do you like to head out with a list and a plan, or casually look? I’m a browser, it drives my honey bonkers! Grin. Sometimes trying to figure out what to do with old pieces is like cracking a code of sorts. To paint or not to paint? Distress […]

silvery sage painted chest

Hola Cottage Fix Crew! Long time no see. It’s been a crazy end of summer around here and even though I’ve been working on a couple of DIY projects, i haven’t had an opportunity to share them with you. So I’m very excited to get back into the swing of things! And today it’s all silvery sage paint with some farmhouse inspired styling. I wanted to give this old vintage chest a freshen up, and I’ve also been trying to […]

French Linen dining table

Salutations! I’m blogging in today with yet another table painting saga to share with you. It feels good to get this off my chest. Indeed, I can’t keep all this table makeover drama to myself. And I can’t tell you how many times the thought “why didn’t I just leave it blue!!” went through the ol’ noggin. But what’s done is done, so now it’s time to figure out a way to get a color that works and makes me […]

vintage bathroom cabinet that Honey redid- love!

Hey guys! Look at what my honey did! I’m so in love, with the bathroom cabinet too! Wink. This is the little cabinet that we took down when we redid the kiddos bathroom a couple years back. I’m fairly certain it’s original to the house since the wall behind it had never been painted. The cabinet was painted yellow and partially covered in the same yellow bird wallpaper that covered most of the old bathroom, including the ceiling. I actually […]
