1950's to 2012

My big projects lately are taking place at the summer cottage in the mountains of NC.  I have been chalk painting 1950's (yucky) furniture, trying to bring this home into the 2012 realm of cottage chic.
Here is a peek into this sweet home and one of the furniture projects that I did this weekend.
 The bed and another tall dresser will also see some chalk paint soon.

Getting better!
Walls are going a creamy white next weekend!

Linking to Furniture Feature Friday: miss mustard seed


  1. It looks so cheery there! Especially after you painted the dresser. I can't wait to see the new wall color! What fun!

  2. WAY better! I love the shade of blue you selected and the distressing and white accents are perfect!

  3. Love that bowl on the dresser. It is fabric or handmade paper? Did you make it? Please tell us more!!

    I make handmade papers from plants, so of course I am interested. Some examples on my site.
