Hello! I feel like I haven't shared anything fun with ya'll in a while. I have been kind of in a funk mood the last two days. I have a huge pile of furniture and accessories to paint {yes a very good thing} and most of it is not going in the shop or custom pieces but pieces I am taking with me to Junk Salvation Nov 4-5th.  I kept looking the the huge pile and wasn't sure where to start, so I didn't . But I went to my Wednesday morning Bible study and I left with encouragement and motivation to start on my "pile".
That is what is going on with me, I did paint my first coat on five pieces today. Yippie for me!

I do have a fun guest post for you today.



TodayĆ­s guest post is from Susi, a writer for Arcadian Lighting, a must-shop resource for beautiful†light fixtures and lamps online. Visit their website and cool blog for more information. Enjoy!

Classic cottage chic means a palette of white, creams, tans and white washed pastels. This bedroom has those in spades. Love the button tufted bench at the foot of the bed. Tons of style!

Tiny but chic, this cottage bedroom is colorful and charming. White washed woods against brighter pops of color and bold patterns feel fresh. Love the upholstered poofs next to the bed.

Pale knotty pine paneling looks chic in this cottage bedroom by Sarah Richardson. Palest blue on the bed and bedside table add subtle shades of color while a red and white pillow adds punch.

White painted furniture and lighting is always chic in a cottage bedroom. Love the faux-bamboo four poster bed in white. Cheery yellow stripes and blue stools add pops of color. Pretty lamps adorn the nightstands, but the white chandelier above the bed is the light fixture that steals the show here.

Bolder accents, like red and blue, are great ways to add color to a chic cottage space. Love the red against the pale blue and white striped floor. A grain sack runner on the dresser ties in more red.

Tons of white is a trademark of chic cottage style. Using black accents grounds the space and adds contrast. Ticking stripes are a perfect pattern for cottage rooms. Love the unusual wall sconce above the bed.
