I don't know if I've done it yet,
but my persistent nagging to my husband just may have paid off!
Yep, that's right.
I may have talked him into drywalling our living room and re-decorating!
So, since we have that huge garage sale coming up in September,
I am putting the pressure on!
All the items I marked hopefully will be for sale!
If you spy something you like,
you can email me at
wish me luck!

p.s. if this is the look you are after I also will have some antique wood duck decoys, a vintage goose decoy, and some other rustic accessories at the garage sale!
Sept. 11th & 12th!
Don't miss it!

Finally he gave in! I can't wait to see what you are going to do. Maybe paint the deer head pink. Wouldn't that just drive him nuts. I remember when I finally could get rid of this tapestry that my husband loved. The longer your married, they finally give in.

See you soon,

Before you get rid of that armoire-- which I soooo want but don't live anywhere near you-- you should check out this post especially since you mentioned that aqua color yesterday

It is soooo pretty and if I can find an armoire like it, I'm all over it!

I can't wait to see what you do with the room after you finish. I'm sure it's going to be awesome.

My son's room has a cabin theme. Your antler lamp would be perfect! Let me know if you'd be willing to ship it...

That is fun stuff, I'm a cowgirl at heart and wish I had a ranch...although I'd struggle with my inner shabby chic cottage antique heart versus the ranch look! ;) Do you remember Rachel Ashwell's book "The Shabby Chic Home" where she bought her Malibu cottage? It was all wood inside, very dark beams, etc., and she painted it all white. I think that might keep the cottage character of your place, (although probably more work than sheet rock- and lots and lots of white paint! :)

My Dad had pine paneled walls and he painted them. They look fabulous! Maybe you should try a coat of paint before you drywall. Looking forward to seeing your living room updates!! Love your blog!! I check it daily!!

I am sure you have already thought about this, but could you paint the walls (like you mentioned) and the furniture and get the sofa slipcovered?
I also love the color cottage white, by behr from home depot. my favorite white.
