Lake Cottage: Before and After

June 8, 2013


Erin Schrader

I’m not usually one to write Saturday posts however on this particular Saturday I don’t  have to work (fist pump) and am currently just wasting time until I am forced to get in the shower. To help pass the time I thought it would be fun to share with you our current before and after pictures of our little (itty bitty) lake cottage we purchased last fall. The same lake cottage that I was just sure would be done by the time Thanksgiving rolled around. Well, here we are nine months later and we are almost to the finish line.
There has been a lot of hard work (thanks to him), a lot of couch laying (thanks to me), and a lot of “what in the heck were we thinking” (thanks to both) of us in the process. I hope you can notice the transformation as we have changed out basically everything and it’s entirety.
I am not listing on here paint colors, where furnishings came from, etc but if there is something you want to know please just ask in the comments below and I will be sure to get back with you on that!
Let’s begin this little slide show of sorts.
