Exciting News - BH&G Feature!!!


It's been pretty exciting around our house lately! I'm still on cloud nine and
  truly couldn't be more grateful for the opportunity to have our little old house we
love featured in BH&G!  

Do you guys remember when I shared the details of the photo shoot two years ago, and
then BH&G's Refresh Magazine Spring 2015 feature of the exterior of our home and yard.
 And, also mentioned our interior would be in the Refresh Fall 2015 issue.
The dates, as well as which magazine our interior would be featured changed a few
 times over the past couple years, and I'm still bowled over that it ended up in the
October issue of Better Homes & Gardens!!
  
I'm happy to be able to share some of the photos with you, as not all the homes
 they feature are published in all areas, and ours happened to fall in that category.      



 As you know, if you're a regular reader, furniture gets rearranged,
walls repainted, and color schemes refreshed...often. It's fun to look back
and see how it's changed.


Wow, the entry is still the same!


My favorite thrifted chairs, after their makeovers, are still in my living room today.
(I'm not as bad as I thought!)


This hutch has had nine lives, and was one of my favorite makeovers. It's now
white and in my dining room.


My mostly neutral dining room, except for the addition of my bold buffet, and a peek at
 the nailhead ceiling.
This set of chairs is going on Craigslist any day, if you're local and interested let me know.


This free dresser I rescued from the street was the first time I was brave with a
bold paint color. I was so scared, ha!  



Hmmm...looking at this makes me wonder how my island would look if it were white?


My bedroom hasn't changed a bit, but I'm getting the itch.

BH&G did a great article that was a fun surprise when it popped up on my
Pinterest feed! :)
"The Cottage Makeover is All in the Details"
 with lots of before and after photos and links to the DIY tutorials,
 you can find it HERE.  

It starts with a diamond in the rough photo when we first purchased our home!


Thank you all so much for always stopping by, and for your endless enthusiasm and
encouragement for all my projects and decor!

xoxo,
Pam

Congratulations! I love your home, inside and out. I'm trying to channel your influence and be bolder in our very plain home Recently, I almost drove off the road while driving down a favorite street of beautiful older homes and thought I saw your lovely home! I promise I'm not stalking you!

Hi Pam,
I just saw your home photos in BG&H today and have to say nice job! I am an Interior Designer and have been struggling with my own home, since I really love a preppy cottage glam style that no one here in Wisconsin seems to "get". What really got me is how you solved my living room issues. I have the same awkward bay, and struggle with the furniture arrangement. Can I ask, how big is your room? I also have a chair rescued from my Grandmother's estate that looks just like yours in my basement, waiting for me to revamp it!
I am floored at how similar your house is to mine, structurally, and how you knocked the styling that I have been wanting, out of the park! Its like you read my mind, and showed me how to make it work. I can't thank you enough for the inspiration.
