I am going to start off with posting my previous house, the lake house. I call it lake house but it wasn't on the water, it was steps from beaches, marinas, and parks it was impossible not to be inspired by my surroundings. Thats why I refer to it as a cottage or lake house!I loved the area, it was relaxing and beautiful. The neighbours were pretty amazing, which was a big bonus! I loved living there and still miss it!
The previous owners had lived there for 60 years and had done very little updating...at all. It was dark, dirty, and in need of lots of love. I wanted to go nautical without being over the top, the house is very small so I tried to kept things simple.
**Also spot the new door it was free I might add! I will post about that adventure another time! Oh and the coffee table I made that also! We have so much to catch up on.
The mirror and the bookshelf are also from Ikea.
This little lake house stole my heart. So happy with how it turned out and how easy it was to do! Keep checking in for lots more to come of before and afters of each room!
