Happy Monday & Coastal Living Giveaway






In Australia it is still winter, so the cover of the latest issue of Coastal Living is making me crave summer right now. This issue is jam packed with coastal influences and I am loving the article " Before's & After's". Can you believe the transformations of some of these beachy homes? How ever do they do it? If you would like to win a copy of this inspirational magazine please leave a comment today. I will post anywhere in the world. Good luck.

  39. Amazing transformations! Is this mag available here? I've looked in newsagents, but haven't been able to find it.

    ReplyDelete
  40. The transformations are amazing. When we first bought our house 18 months ago I had to really convince my husband that it was worth it. All through renovations I kept pestering him with pictures of designs I wanted and the 'vision' of what I had in mind. It's a completely different home now and we just love it. It's amazing what you can achieve if you stick at.

  67. Oh cool, picture 4, a few months back I pulled a bar chair out of someones trash like the one on the left. It was natural wood, unpainted, so I decided to paint it white and then distress it a little. Now I need to find a few more, but this is the first time I have seen them online, wonder what type of chair it is, what they are called, when they were made...does anyone know?

  68. I am a follower, so I found out about your give-a-way in time. Love your cottage and allowing me to come along on your life's adventure. Blessings, Janet
