My Cozy Cottage in central Florida has a lovely little garage with a tin roof.
It was a messy place I hadn't had a chance to pay much attention to since my focus was on the house. But then I had a vision it could be a special artist space and showcase area.
It began with discarding lots of old wood, broken tools etc left over from the previous owners years ago. I had some electric work done in order to hang some chandeliers and the vision began to take form.....
It was a thrill to open the doors for a weekend sale! I invited some other wonderful shabby chic vendors to join me and it was bliss!
Cupcakes and lemonade were served all weekend long and the weather cooperated perfectly!!
I am a blessed and lucky girl to have my friend Julie who grasped my vision from the start and worked so very hard with me... I call her "The Power Tool Queen" and I learned so much about drills and staple guns etc! No matter what I said, her response was "We'll make it work!" And we DID!!
I have decided to make this little nook a
"Meet the Artist" venue where I will create, and also feature other artist's works. I will open the doors occasionally for private appointments and host The Cottage Chic Sale twice a year!
It's a wonderful feeling to have a special vision and see it come to fruition... sending you all love and light! xoxo
