Cottage – before & after

This little cottage became the cover for my book – Your Home Matters.  As promised in the book here are more photos before & after:))))

Outside photos first:

Front of cottage – not much curb appeal!

Looking better – yes that’s the bath tub from the house!



Now lets take a look at the inside…

Front porch – before (we had to get rid of all of that junk)

Porch – after – This quickly became my favorite places to enjoy my coffee!

Living room before – more junk that needed to be removed before we could even start!

Living room after – we added a split system for heat & air (on the wall).

Kitchen – before – this was the cleanest room in the house!

We created a nice little eating area.

A closer look at the pantry which I covered with paisley material.

Another angle of the eating area.

I loved the open shelving!

After bedroom

After bedroom – a little area off the master bedroom that we used for a guest room and office.

I saved the best for last!
Bathroom – before.

Close up so you could see what we were dealing with! There was a little vine growing out of the funnel that caught the leak from the toilet tank!

Our son Errol – Can you find Len?

Bathroom – after

A new toilet!!!

We kept the original sink – after a good SCRUB!

I hope you enjoyed your before and after tour of our little beach shack/cottage transformation!
