A third generation family cottage before and after


This cute cottage had been in my clients family for a few generations. She wanted to update it for her family. The living room was very dark and cavelike. Painting the pine walls and floor opened everything up. We reused a good amount of her treasures, the wicker was painted and reupholstered.

    Great job! What fabric did you use for the pillows? Would love to get some. Wicked chairs turned out so pretty!

    The lighting doesn't do it justice, I can tell. I bet it's beautiful but because of the lighting in the photographs, I honestly thought the "after" was the before
