Good Morning Sweet Tea Friends
I wanted to share our new flooring and updates at the cottage. Mr. Cottage has been working so very hard.
While I was away with my girlfriends he supervised the installers and worked on the baseboard mouldings.
To avoid the cost of a professional door installer he also is hanging the doors himself and adding crown mouldings around the doors.
This is what all of the doors looked like previously and I am loving the bright new doors (they will still need painting but it all takes time).
My sweet sister-in-law Stephanie gifted me with the pretty mirrored cabinet. I just love it!
She said she didn't have room for it anymore and she knew how I adored Shabby Chic furniture. You can see the reflection of the couch in it!
Sorry about Hubby's tools but he gets upset if I move them when he's working.
Sweet Stephanie also gave me this beautiful flowered painting.
I'm still deciding where to put things and everything is still in disarray but much more liveable now that we have flooring and not cement floors and also doors on most doors.
Hubby even installed the dishwasher himself to avoid extra costs but of course I was his right hand man throughout. We thought we better replace the dishwasher in case the old one had problems and we had a flood. We don't have a new stove yet - it's hard to put the black one back on the new floors. No cooking for me! Lol!
We painted the oak kitchen cabinets a couple of years ago and added beadboard to brighten the kitchen.
The rest of the flooring will go into the family room. There's still lots to complete but I am being patient.
I brought this little lamp all the way home from
La Quinta for my sideboard.
Now that the reno tour is over, let's have a little tea, shall we?
Both teacups are Royal Albert.
The teapot is a Sadler.
Thank you so much for stopping by my sweet friends.
Hope your daffodils are in bloom too!
