The Acorn Cottage {Cabana Striped Awning}

Finally! After weeks of waiting, misplacing the previous frame, rescheduling, the fabric awning finally was installed at the rear doors yesterday by C. Bel Awnings. We chose a black and white cabana stripe which matches our umbrellas and pillows. I love the way it completes the look of the rear of the house. It looks like I will need a large doormat to go at the base of the back doors.

We are having a built-in shelving unit installed in the den, so I'll resume the "befores and afters" next week. Stay tuned......

Awnings, y'all!

The Acorn Cottage {Before and After: Kitchen}

The kitchen is a small room but received lots of TLC during the remodel. The appliances, backsplash, and countertops were changed, added, or replaced. The cabinets were in good condition, so we decided to keep them and had them repainted in glossy BM Chelsea Gray.

And the kitchen today:

The addition of updated accessories and linens helps to bring the kitchen into the 21st century.

I also love the character of the built-in hutch just outside the kitchen. It is perfect for glassware and storage of dishes and other important entertaining staples.

Kitchen, y'all!

The Acorn Cottage {Before and After: Guest Bedroom}

We also went light and bright in the guest bedroom, selecting the Pottery Barn Morgan bedding in white and green (my favorite color).

Here is the guest bedroom on May 11, 2018:

And here is the "after", September 22, 2018:

We used the antique full bed that was in the Nest on Perrier Street. Brass sconces are perfect as bedside lamps. I do have a love for sconces.

A vintage dresser is perfect for storage.

I'd also like Roman shades in this room, so I'll add this to my list of wants.

Guest Bedroom, y'all!
