Day One at the Cottage

Hi everyone!
Well, I got into Nashville yesterday afternoon, and Gina
and her cute red-headed daughter, Bre, picked me up at the airport,
we got back to their home after 6 P.M. and had dinner with the others and talked a long while,
planned out a few things, and went to bed.

Here's what happened today.
Biscuits and chocolate gravy.

Dozens of painted 2X4s in the sun.

Lisa and ChaCha (I helped when I wasn't taking pictures) hanging the 2X4 moulding
around the top of the walls.

Angie and I had a lot of fun doing this. NOT.

And then moulding got added around the windows.

The tearing of the muslin for curtains.

Hardware for some Ikea nightstands.

Building of the Ikea nightstands.

Gina glazes the painted Ikea nightstands.

I know I am a tease.
No pictures of the rooms.
You'll get to see those on Sunday.
Two more days of painting, sewing, building and then the reveal of the rooms!

I am pooped to bed!
Later, taters!



  1. I love the pictures! I don't even remember you taking any pictures. It has been such a delight to "play" with you this week! Lisa~

  2. Ooh, can't wait to see what the room looks like!

  3. So far, so good, Leslie! Looking forward to seeing more!

  4. I love the ceiling molding, so cottage-y! I've been thinking of doing that in my guest room. Those look like 1x4s, which is what I'll use. Can't wait to see the room finished.

  5. Fun, fun...can't wait to see those nightstands!

  6. Tired but looks like the fun just started!

  12. You can't expect people to focus on hard work when we're looking at pictures of chocolate sauce on biscuits. It's a rule.
