Our Former Cottage: Coastal Cottage in Maine

Our coastal cottage in Maine is fairly small, but the perfect size for us. And best of all, it’s 3/4 mile from our favorite beach in Southern Maine! It’s been great fun collecting ‘treasures’ from tag sales around the area to transform into cottage furniture.

Below you will find all the links leading you to the full article I wrote about my experiences traveling around Maine visiting some amazing places, as well as re-doing furniture and creating fun accessories for the cottage.

Part of decorating is being inspired. I’m inspired by many things, but for sure one of those things is getting out and taking notice of places and scenery around me. That’s why on this page I have the posts separated into 2 categories… Projects and Places.

At the top of this page are the post featuring projects I’ve worked on for at the cottage. But after all the projects, I have the posts from places around the east coast that I’ve visited and I’ve drawn from for decorating inspiration.
