Our Project - 8 (she-shed, girls' get-a-way, cottage)

The porch floor

Next I painted the porch floor. We used the same paint as inside, but we added some sand to it. 

Next step - more staining on the outside!

Our Project - 7 (she-shed, girls' get-a-way, cottage)


My dad and sister worked on the siding while I was painting the floors inside!

I just love the way it looks!

They did such a great job!

Reminds me of the log cabin look (or Lincoln Logs)!

Here are some more "before" pictures. 

The loft floor. 

And the ladder.

After we painted the floor!

And the "after" picture of the ladder.

The "after" of the loft!

One more of the "after" floor!

Next step - siding!

Our Project - 5 (she-shed, girls' get-a-way, cottage)

So most of the book pages were back on the floor. They were stuck to each other, but not the ceiling....

Next we took wallpaper paste and put that behind all of the pages. The next day the pages that had stayed up with the adhesive fell down and we had to put them back up.

On the third or fourth try, we ended up fixing the pages with mod podge and then coating the top with the mod podge as well. We also staples the edges. It took many attempts, but we finally got them up there!

Our Project - 9 (she-shed, girls' get-a-way, cottage)

We finally finished all the interior painting and touching up and now we have also finished staining the outside.


The sunset...Summer coming to a close and the daylight getting shorter. (We finished staining in the dark.)


Up next - moving!

Our Project - 4 (she-shed, girls' get-a-way, cottage)

Book Pages!

We decided we would take old pages and cover the ceiling with them!

First we sprayed adhesive and then put up the book pages. 

I just loved the way it turned out! Isn't it fun?

The next morning, this is what I found...

Not good...

Next - figuring out what to do.....
