Plum Cottage Living
Merry Christmas! Hope everyone is having a great day.
Our little cottage is a little over 700 sq. ft. It is a challenge to make things work, especially if you have too much of any one thing, which we do and that is books.
We have been curbside shopping for our whole married life (40 years) and if we see something that might work for us we load it up. One of these days, I'll have to go around and take pictures of different things we've found, that we are living with.
Our living room is roughly 16 1/2' x 9 1/2'. I am sitting at one end to take the long view picture. You can see the little library/office/my craft space to the left through the arch. This space is about 6'x8', pictured below.
The bookcase,desk unit at the back left of picture, the bookcase on top of handmade piece on the right, were both found pieces. We will get rid of the bookcase on the right eventually, but for now it works.
I had gotten out Christmas issues of magazines to look at, and put this 2005 issue of Cottagle Living in the end of this little table. I thought it was great when I saw what it said in the picture. I know our 'style' isn't for everyone, but it works for us.
Last week DH found this little table in a curbside pile. It's finish needed to be refurbished and it needed a glass top. It is hand made and when I first saw it I loved it. It goes so well with our little cottage. DH used a finish reviver formula on it and cut a glass top for it.
Here is the top.

Thanks for viewing our humble little cottage.
