Gerard and I have finally manged to get our little cottage back to some normality, all the Christmas decor has been packed away ready for another year. It took awhile to get things packed away and rearrange the furniture but we are happy with the results. We painted the lounge before Christmas and shopped the cottage to find accessories to match. A cupboard was built in along with shelves giving extra storage and all the pipework from the work to the bathroom have now finally been boxed in. All in all it is pleasing to the eye and comfortable using things we already had so not costing a fortune.
I love the stag head handles adding to the hint of a Scottish theme.
I crocheted a table mat for the newly stained box we are using as a coffee table. The wine cooler holds a set of bulb lights which are battery operated so very handy when the power is off.
It is fresh, warm and cosy. We were amazed how little we needed to spend as we already had the wood, paint and as said previously we shopped our cottage for the accessories. We now intend to give our bedroom a little facelift to freshen it up and shopping the cottage once again is definately on the agenda.
Do you buy everything new when you decorate or do you shop your home for new ideas?
Thank you so much for your wonderful comments and your warm welcome back to blogging. Both Gerard and I have found the whole experience so very humbling and feel so blessed by this amazing community.
See you soon.
