We moved into our 1927 Craftsman bungalow just seven months ago. My husband and I had always wanted to live in an older home with character, so finding this place was alotof fun. We found that the woodwork had been painted in a lot of the older homes that we looked at and the oak flooring had been replaced or covered over. This place is a little gem, we think! I have wanted to decorate in a cottage style for so long and none of my homes have given themselves to that style. Until now!!! We painted all of the walls a butter yellow and started from there. Here are a few pictures of my living room. I continually waffle between wanting to paint all of my wood furniture white and loving the dark furniture. Do you ever do that? I have a lovely old wood dresser that I have put in the living room. It was given to my parents back in the 1969 after our house burnt down. It was painted a dark brown, I told my folks if they ever wanted to get rid of it I would love to have it. I have always loved old furniture, so after they gave it to me I stripped it and I have so enjoyed it ever since. We are wanting to replace all of the cabinets in the kitchen, so a kitchen re-do will be coming up soon!!
May your day be a blessed one!
