Happy Easter Friends! I’m so glad you took a break from all the Easter Festivities to stop by today.
Do you have annual Easter Traditions?
We almost always spend Easter at the Beach.
Some years we freeze and some we get to soak up the sun.
Regardless, it’s always the start of our beach season.
This year we have been basking in our newly remodeled cottage. We are still amazed at how different everything looks.
If you missed the Tiny Beach Cottage Makeover Before and After, you can still see it here.
Adventures at the End of the Dirt Road
This is a look back at all my adventures this past week.
We’ve been at the beach cottage since Wednesday and I’ve enjoyed a little thrifting and dining out when we first arrived.
Once the crowds rolled in, we stick a little closer to home.
Do you remember the projects I shared last Sunday? Well, I finished a few of the trending projects and wanted to give you an update.
First, is the basket and cloche trend which I’m using at the beach cottage. I found this cute wooden sea turtle while out Thrifting with the Gals and he looks perfect under the cloche.
I finished the $1.00 Thrift Store lamp makeover using the paper napkins that I shared with you last Sunday. If you love the blue and white distressed porcelain vase trend, you will love how this lamp turned out. See all the details here.
It was so sweet of Mary at Life at Bella Terra to feature this project on her weekly, Saturday Meanderings.
I’ll be sharing a few more DIY Trending Projects this week, so stay tuned.
In Case You Missed It!
I love a great before and after, especially when it’s a thrifted or flea market flip. Earlier in the week, I shared The 9 Best Repurposed or Up Cycled Ideas yet!
