not knitting but still using color

Elliott and I spent the greater part of this past weekend painting a couple of rooms in the cottage we are renting. We will be moving in a few weeks so it will probably be rather quiet on the blog front. I'll give you the partial tour:

Here's the front side - it's a 1916 Sears kit house. A petite cape cod style with room extensions off on the side like a miniature farmhouse.

And here is the back and the main entrance with the little garden:

And a view of the front yard:

An action shot of Elliott painting:

Both the living room and dining room were this rather drab dark beige color:

This is much better:

How much yarn can I fit inside???

Oh it's so cute!! The outside reminds me of my grandparents house! Same blue shutters and white siding. I'm sure once you get it all painted it will be awesome!

I love the cottage, and the colors are just so fabulous. Great light in there, too! I wish our little cape cod got so much light (alas, we're in the city and have houses on all sides, stealing our sunshine!).

The house is beautiful. It reminds us of the cottage we used to stay in at Bert Lake. Hope the move goes smoothly. Let us know you new address.
Love, Mom

What a fabulous little cottage! I have to say I am a fan of drab beige, but i do admire people who can do color.
