Today in Port Mouton - Rainy

Rainy, high of 20 (68f)

Well, it became so stinkin hot that I could only scrape in the early mornings. And now the rains have descended upon us, and promise to remain for the week. So we have abandoned the outside and are focusing on the inside.

The "Before" Pictures:

This shot looks from the kitchen into the main floor tiny bedroom (or office - but we are using it as a bedroom)

 Our bed will go into this space:

 The other end of that little bedroom - I think that I'd like some sort of shallow desk with cupboards over them. There is a build in closet to the right, but it doesn't fit all of our clothes. And I prefer clothes on shelves.

The kitchen! (that view looks over the "pond")

I intend to paint all of that woodwork out with white. Oh, yes I am! I've chosen Benjamin Moore Cloud White. It is a slightly warm white. I really want this place to look "cottagey" . Think Shabby Chic.

First up - removing wallpaper borders (you can see them above the kitchen counter, and continuing around the room).

I like rainy days in the summer. It makes you look inside and clean up all the mess you've left during the sunny days. :} That said, I'd rather not have a whole week of rain! Too much inside-ness and it just gets messier!
good luck.

I know about "all that painting"! We redid a cottage several years ago, and paint became my decorator's tool of choice. I painted, ceilings, walls, woodwork & cabinets, and the floors. It is a lot of work, but paint can last 20 years. :>) Show us pictures of your progress.

It really is proving to be a very rainy summer. It's going to be so cool to see the results of all your hard work. If you send me your address, I'll send you a card.
