Cozy Beach Cottage Update

Hello, friends!
Time for a little beach cottage renovation update....

You remember this cottage...

It's right next door to our cottage...

and our good friends bought it last fall.

Lots of work has been done- 
you can read about it in the last update.

The interior was gutted and everything is new, inside and out.

and now all of the finish details are in the works.
I'll just show you a few of the interior things we've been working on.

There's the newly tiled fireplace 

and the sliding barn doors

custom made by a local craftsman and so awesome!

Here is a detail of the mantel

and here are the doors, ready to hang.

They look great, don't they?

I love the V-groove paneling over the fireplace and in the panels of the sliding doors.

That door hardware is massive and it will tie so many things together- 
the new TV over the fireplace, the ceiling fan 
and the chandeliers-
Look how cute this one is, with it's new bead board ceiling. 

Bead board was added to the ceilings in the bedrooms 
and V-groove paneling was added on some interior walls, too.  
It's so coastal and nautical and the texture it adds is fantastic.
Did I mention that I love V-groove paneling?

Here's a peek at the kitchen in progress.
Can you spot the V-groove?

More on the kitchen soon.  
It's nearly finished!

And now for one of my most favorite parts of the entire project...
The back of the cottage got a new entry and deck. 

There's room for a bench and some flower pots and it's going to be great.

But the best part is the new window box!
I've dreamed of a window box there for years.
Dreams do come true!

And that's Just*Grand!

  1. What a great update!

    I am new here - saw your link at Savvy Southern Style. Where are you located? Obviously not on the same coast as me because of that snow I see.

  2. I see a very positive trend going on . . . and right next door to you!
    And I love what I see . . . oh my . . . what a sumner it will be for your friends . . .
    And you too . . . Just*Grand!

  3. How great! What a wonderful job they are doing on that little cottage. Love all the beadboard and details.

  4. Wow! It seems like the workers are really doing a great job in revamping your house. Everything is practically done except for the kitchen, which by the looks of it, will be finished too shortly. Well, I hope that its internal structure (such as piping and electrical structure), were constructed as beautifully as its exteriors. Thanks for sharing this, Erin! Have a great day!
