The cottage is finished but...

I still need to make furniture for it. Marisa is right. The little house needs custom furnishings. For now, I took photos with the vintage pieces. I'm still planning to use the kitchen and bath fixtures. (I love the olive green kitchen! :-) )

I'm usually happy with every project I work on but I am extra proud of this one because of how different it now looks from its humble origins.

 A rather boring bathroom at this point but at least there's a garden tub. ;-)
 I do like some things about the lavender bedroom set but I think it's a bit too regal for the cottage.
 I don't know whether I want a couple of wing chairs or a sofa in here. I would love a rocking chair.
The second floor looks a bit wonky in this photo but I don't think it really is. Of course, most everything in an old house usually is somewhat off kilter so I guess I don't mind if it is off. LOL.

Stay tuned for new furniture. It's back to work on Monday so the weekend is likely my best chance to finish things up. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! Oh, and a little side note: my hubby now has a blog about our home and garden. Newest addition will be chickens! Check out Hoosier Country Home to see the babies. :-)
