The Acorn Cottage {Copper Awning}

Church bells ring!!! Finally, the copper awning produced by C. Bel Awnings of New Orleans was installed onto the cottage yesterday. I like bells and whistles, and the awning gives the cottage that "wow" factor I had imagined. After several days of rain, thunder, and lightning, the installers were finally able to get the mammoth piece installed, and I can honestly say that I love it.

Also installed yesterday were the French Quarter gas lantern by Bevolo. Though it is not functional yet (the plumber needs to do his thing) at least the lantern is in its proper place. The shutters as well as glass door were installed too. I'll show you more in a future post.

For now, let's take in the beauty of the copper awning.

Copper Awning, y'all!


  1. You need to start flipping houses. and get an HGTV show.

  2. Wowsers, Ron. That awning is magnificent. Everything is looking great. Barbara @ Fair Meadow Place

  3. Good afternoon, Ron! That copper awning really makes a statement! It is gorgeous! I bet The Acorn Cottage is the envy of your neighborhood! Have a good evening! Cheers! xoxo!

  4. I have been fascinated by all that you and J have done to turn this into your home! So fascinated that I looked at the real estate listing and was able to take a virtual tour of the home before you started creating your special magic in it. Can you add those photos and house plan here? We all love a good before and after! Thank you so much for sharing, you have inspired me to get up and create a little magic in my own home!

  5. fabulous! and not seen alot ! great choice!

  6. Oh- I love it, Ron. We had copper awnings on two of our houses that had aged to the verdi green over the years. Just fantastic. Can't wait to see more and more and more....We finally got internet here and I need to visit some of your older posts and play catch up.
    When I was going through my books (purging many, storing some and keeping some to display and look at---of course, YOUR book is right close to my favorite chair.
    Happy week to you- xo Diana

  7. Wow Ron I can’t tell you enough how much I love the copper awning. The house really has new character. The lantern was the perfect choice and I love the soft blue you chose for the shutters. The previous owner won’t recognize it if he coms by! With that new front landscaping it’s going to be over the top fantastic!

  8. The exterior piece de resistance - the gas light or the copper awning - cannot choose one over the other!

  9. Stunning, stunning!!!! What beautiful curb appeal.
