Q: What’s almost as fun as owning and decorating your own cottage?
A: Having a friend who owns a cottage and asks for advice!
* * *
I got a text from my Sabrina asking for colour advice – she has cottage on Prince Edward Island and is working hard at making it a lovely cottage-chic getaway. It is steps away from a sandy beach and she’s using it as inspiration for their home away from home.
Sabrina already painted and reupholstered some great chairs for her kitchen and sent a text asking for my thoughts on painting the maple table. It was the yellowish maple that looked fine but would be even better with some colour. (please, don’t be jealous of my mad illustrator skills)
Here is the before:
See, how fun are those chairs?!
My first thought was white,
but then my imagination wandered to several more options… black or dark charcoal… maybe too intense for a summer home;
a lighter shade of blue to mellow the chairs;
sabrina mentioned she had a can of yellow;
then I thought it’d be bold to go even greener;
and finally purple!
And here is the winner…
Such a great ending to a fun project! Thanks Sabrina. -xomeg
