About This Space

My dream finally came true when we were able to purchase an Outer Banks beach cottage. The only problem was the owners were in their eighties and the house was "decorated" accordingly, kind of a nursing home vibe. It was a total overhaul on a very limited budget. I put this living room together by scouring craigslist, ebay, etsy, consignment shops, craft stores, and exploring any other low budget ideas I could think of. I wanted a coastal feel for not much money, but as far away from the "beach packages" which furnished every vacation rental we've had for the past 20 years!
