Sometimes just changing things around can feel like a brand new room!!!! I had this cute chippy bench sitting in my guest room closet with no place to call home.  I took it out today and move some things around in the master bedroom and I like it in front of the windows in my Master Bedroom.  Threw on some cute pillows and you got a cute cottage bench in the bedroom!!!

Next thing was taking this Guest Cottage sign and hanging it above one of the twin beds in my small guest room. I think I like it over the bed.  It was hanging on the bedroom door but I think I like that you see it as you enter the guest room.

Ok I wasn't done yet so I took this cute sign I bought on etsy from http://www.etsy.com/people/GraphicallySpeak about the Cottage Rules and hung it on the wall in my lake theme guest room.  I love all the cute sayings on this sign. I just went to Walmart and got an inexpensive frame that I spray painted white and framed this.  I think it came out cute and I really love the wording on this cutie!!!

Ok all of this started with me vacuuming rooms and cleaning this morning.  I got the bug to change up somethings.  Now with very little effort I feel like I have change in these rooms.

  3. Love your bench...so pretty! There is one like it in our local thrift shop and I would love to bring it home, but I don't have a place for it.
    The guest cottage sign looks perfect above the bed.
    Have a great Sunday.

  6. I love your guest room and kitchen changes! So many wonderfully creative and clever ideas! I think I've now caught the bug and am going to continue what I started last week - taking back my house from the clutter of others and decorating to my heart's content! Well, at least with what I already have. It's amazing how yo can move something from one room to another and create a whole new look -= and it's free! Thank you so much for sharing! Oh, love that garden edging along your kitchen ceiling line - so stinkin cute! Hugs, Leena

      It is fun to just change things up from room to room and you feel like you have a whole new design and like you said it is FREE!!!! Love that. I love that garden edging too. I saved that from the garbage. Can you believe someone threw out that treasure!!! I am not below garbage picking when I see cute stuff like that waiting to be reloved in my home!!!! I am going to jump over to your blog now. Thanks for coming by.

  7. I love everything about your home! My current style is Primitive, but WOW! White paint could change everything! I love love LOVE the garden gate headboard and I am searching for one in my local area. I also have the same sign over my twin guest bed, but the gate headboard is the perfect touch!

    1. Hi Tammy,
      Funny you should say you have Primitive. I had my whole house before we moved here 5 years ago in all Primitive. I loved the old primitive style too but this house was in a lake town and it just felt so cottage to me so white and cream here we are!!!!!! Thanks for coming by and your nice comments.
