Cypress Cottage Back Bedroom Renovation — 7 Comments

  1. OH BW!! That place is going to be SO gorgeous – If I ever make it to see you, I am going to have to see your cottage LOVE IT!!!!!

    Just see it? You’ll have to stay in it and watch all the boats passing in the bayou; and hear the bridge horn every time it opens and closes for those boats!!!

  2. Fig tree looks healthy! Will you be taking time off from the cottage to do some canning? I’m watching my tree closely. They should be ripe in a few weeks, and I’ve got to get to them before the birds do. OH YEAH, before I forget…..the Cottage is looking good!

    As a matter of fact, I will be doing just that. I have to make regular fig preserves for my older sister and then I make mock strawberry and mock raspberry for my family. I will be posting these events! My cousin, Katy Bug, is supposed to come down and help me this summer. They always ripen around my birthday, and it gives me great joy to can for my family on my birthday! Oh, and I LOVE Katy Bug’s fig preserves with lemon rind. Yummy!

  3. You are more than welcome, Little Big Sis! I still can’t believe it took us three days to paint one room, but we did it right and it looks great. Can’t wait to see it with floor covering and window treatments!

    And, yes. Next time there will be a boat ride.

    Well, we started sanding Monday evening, and we finished painting Wednesday evening, right? I think we took Thursday off to go look for window treatments and flooring!

  4. I LOVE it. My mother’s dining room was that shade of green and I have always loved it.
    I want to come stay, too!

    Certain times of the day, it looks more gray. Other times, it looks a calm green. It’s called Delta Fog, which I think is a great name for this paint! I wonder if the manufacturer would pay me to advertise?

  5. Thanks for the comment. I love your blog. My husband and I were born in LA (Alexandria and Sulphur). I wanted to promote some good LA blogs and found yours!

    Thanks, Ellen and I hope I live up to your “good blog” standard!!!!

  6. This looks great!! Your cottage looks more cottag(ie), or more like a cottage…whatever…it looks very homie, and inviting!

    My sister and I had a similar experience recently..her house had that cottage cheese looking stuff on her ceilings…it took a couple of weeks but we were able to scrape it all off, and de-cottage cheese her house! The end of the job is always the best part…isn’t it?!

    Thanks, H! The end of each room/job is great, but when it’s all finished will be FANTASTIC!!! Thanks for coming by, Harmony!
