Town and Country Living, Friday Feature

As a single mother of two, Jennifer from Town and Country Living,  bought a Victorian cottage, circa 1875. Later she remarried and decided to stay in her beloved, well worn home. With wide baseboards framing painted floors, ample sunlight washes in through two-over-two windows, some with wavy glass. No floor is perfectly level and the need for small props under furniture feet is a necessity. It sounds perfectly delightful!

living room

In the living room, she used landscape burlap to create window treatments, using sticks as curtain rods. This room features Aunt Marion’s blanket chest made over with Annie Sloan chalk paint and the clock has been made over too!

crafting closet

With not much closet space, an Ikea cabinet was made over and serves nicely as a crafting space.

Adding to the charm of the old house, the stair case is narrow and twisted.

buffet

In the dining room, this beautiful buffet is dressed for Christmas. It’s gorgeous!

Another peek into the dining room, I love the bamboo floor mat!

Christmas kitchen

A spacious built-in, beadboard cupboard graces the kitchen. Boxwood wreaths dress it up for the holidays.

The other side of the kitchen is decorated simply with greens and red ribbon and looks so pretty!

claw foot tub

Two claw foot tubs are in this home and this one is all set and full of bubbles for you to slip into and relax! Click on the picture to be taken to post to see how this tub was transformed.

Go on over to Town and Country Living and visit Jennifer. You’ll find lots of furniture makeovers and beautiful tablescapes to inspire you in her lovely Victorian cottage.

Merry Christmas!

Tomorrow I hope to be baking Christmas cookies and have decided to make an old recipe I haven’t made for years! Wish me luck!

 

Thanks for visiting! Debra (((xx)))

    What a wonderful old house. There is just nothing today that can compare to the nooks and crannies and character an older home has….I love it. I even love the green tile in the kitchen. xo Diana

    Love it! I see so much of my former home in this one and most especially the beadboard kitchen cabinets. Only mine were not painted…they were stained and varnished. So much charm. Hope that the cookies came out well!
