My Country Cottage Home Tour

Recently I wanted to practice my interior photography with lights on and using a flash...(I normally love natural light images...) So I cleaned up the main area in our home {real good} and now you can see the living room, dining room and kitchen; Country Cottage Style! My Country Cottage Home Tour (part of it, for now!)

The living room (above) features 2 free white slipcovered chairs, Entertainment Center drawers built by my hubby, end tables and coffee table built by my hubby, and shabby chic pillows made from vintage sheets. Some of my photography was framed by hubby and I (near the mirror). The chalkboard (below) was made by my hubby. Dream Garden Woodworks!

Most of the wood furniture was made by my hubby of Dream Garden Woodworks! He has almost completed his new shop where he will finally have a place to call his own.

I enjoy our little humble home! We've lived a lot of places but everything here is peaceful and I am content. My Country Cottage Home Tour moves into the Dining Room where a massive rustic hutch resides holding all my favorite dishes and vases. The oilcloth bunting was inspired this year from a Pinterest image.

The farmhouse style dining table was part of a rustic table my hubby pulled from a barn and repurposed...

When we moved here two years ago the kitchen cabinets matched the color of the floors. I knew I wanted them white and used my own chalk paint mix to paint (didn't even take a gallon!) (it's a small kitchen 🙂

    I so loved your “tour” of the patio and especially the inside of your country home. Loved all the white with dashes of color here and there. It was so clean and fresh. Of course the “real time” picture of Donny sitting at the table and the clothes over the chair was great too. We know living in real time isn’t perfect ….lol Love you guys so much. Thanks for your prayers and support. Words can’t explain how much you all mean to us. Just wish we lived closer so we could see you. Blessings to you
