Hope your doing well,
I thought I would pop in and share some white painted furniture love and a few rain drops..
Yes :) it started to rain yesterday, so excited,, its something we have not seen in a few months now,, and it is still tinkering away on the tin roof as I type,.....
I had been feeling a little Blah on the home front.... You know that feeling after winter!!. I felt sluggish and,, well,, just plain old lazy..
We have been full on over the last few months , with road trips here and there and lots of lovely visitors,,,, But with that all over for a while,,,I was feeling lost! ( this empty nester thing is taking me a while to get used to)
And then with the heat of our Queensland summer coming on,and everything being so dry.. the cottage was feeling a bit musty, dusty and closed in....
"If you don't like something change it; If you can't change it, change the way you think about it ~ Mary Engelbreit.
That's it. Oh yes..
I needed a change in this old cottage, a bit of a freshen up, after all change is as good as a holiday , right?,,, Sooo I thought ,why not make this shabby old cottage become what I would want in a holiday home...
Change things around, mix it up a little... splash a bit of paint around , open up the windows and doors and let the sun shine in.....
And so it began... It only takes small changes to make a big difference.. like the scrolly shelf brackets we changed Here .
And now an old timber out door setting...
Sturdy and functional, but a little tired,,,,,,
Moving things around gives a feeling of "New".
We tend to spend a lot more time out on the front verandah.
I pulled together a few cushions , potted plants and candle lanterns I had scattered around the cottage, and for a small cost we have a fresh new place to relax and take in the view....
For a few more change it up ideas pop over to the beautiful hipbrownthings.blogspot.com.au
Lovely Rachael has some make do and style ideas you will love...
Thanks for the chat :)
I am off to the market to buy some potted herbs and a few vegetables to plant.
I have loads more shape shifting to be done in this shabby old cottage,,, I am sure to share.
Hope all is well in your world.
Until next adventure
