Dirt Road Adventures – Ready To Decorate

Y’all what a week it has been. We have been at our beach cottage working all week but I’m so ready to get all my Christmas Decor in place.

Happy Sunday Friends!

The bedroom at the beach cottage is almost finished.

We have a new window!

A new closet with a great barn door! I love the barn door hardware from Delaney Hardware.

New paint and new floors have been added!

Beach Cottage Remodel Update

And my favorite part, new bedding and decor. I’ll share that reveal soon.

I had lunch with some friends at The Cameron Art Museum. My lunch was delicious.

We went thrifting for new bedroom decor and I found some great pieces!

I didn’t find exactly what I needed but I’ll have better luck next time.

In Case you Missed it

Last week on the blog I shared my Boll and Branch Sheets before and after! Rudy has changed so much and the sheets still look great and get more comfortable with every wash. See more information here.

I was so excited to share how to make these Faux Galvanized Containers. I can’t wait to add my Christmas Decor to them. See all the instructions here.
