Beach Cottage Makeover ~ Old Fridge Gets the BC Treatment
Tue 7th, Sep, 2010
Well, here we have it, the gross fridge makeover…getting some beach decor in this old cottage.
And yep this is truly as exciting as my life gets.
I spend my weekends brandishing chalkboard paint, or for that matter any kind of paint, around looking for my next victim to get this place full of beach decor and ready for some sweet coastal living!
It’s funny. While I was re-vamping this Miss Beach Cottage had a girlfriend over for a sleepover.
I liked her quite a lot cos I heard her say to my lovely daughter in that beautiful girlie way, that can only come from that age, brimming with enthusiasm, ‘ooooh your house is so pretty!’
I love your nautical cottage look…my mum loves beach decor too!
Score number one. You can stay sweetie.
Next she said my roast chicken was scrumptious.
Score number two. I’m beginning to quite like having you around.
Next she turned her eye to the fridge.
She found it rather strange from what I heard that I was taking before photos of an old fridge. An ugly old fridge.
But once she saw it finished she ooohed at the transformation.
Score. You can come back.
So, this lovely Beach Cottager’s is it. Who was I kidding yesterday with that post, that I might have done anything other than zap it with chalkboard paint…chalkboard paint is my go to for beach decor…
Personally, I am patting my back, long and hard, having saved a few cubic feet of earth from a grotty old fridge.
Mr Beach Cottage reserved judgement, there were definitely eyebrows involved here.
He thinks Tuesday’s are his new lucky day.
I may have to re-think that.
I think chalkboard paint, old vintage things, the odd nautical stripe, white and of course some flowers all add up to beautiful beach decor…don’t you?
Catch ya later beach decor chicks…I am outta here.
