Front Living Room – Trim is Primed!

Today’s update from White Cottage Farm is super quick & well… not the prettiest. The farmhouse is an absolute war zone right now.. floors are papered, windows taped up, paint buckets & ladders everywhere, & there isn’t one spot that doesn’t have a mess going on. But guess what? I’ve dreamed of this day for […]

Card Catalog Coffee Table

It seems like my blog is a lot of “befores” lately & I’m not mad about it. Today’s “before” is a little different as it’s a piece of furniture that Jose built for us out of another piece of furniture that was a junkin’ find that I got from a local vintage dealer. It kind […]

Front Living Room- We Found Original Flooring & Brick!

In true Liz Marie fashion I am not finishing any room of our farmhouse & just ripping everything out & starting one project in a room & without finishing it, moving on to a new room. It wouldn’t be me without doing that would it? Jose laughed at me so hard today because he walked […]

New Porch Light – Basket Light

This morning I took a quick break from the inside of our house with all of the projects. Jose & I are actually trying to take things a little slower & not stress ourselves over projects. We have jobs, school, friends, family, & the last thing we want is our farmhouse which is our sanctuary […]

The Dining Room Is Painted!

Well… almost. You see, we thought it was done & then I looked closely through the camera today & in the direct sunlight & realized it needs some touchups on that bottom beadboard. My biggest advice when you are doing projects or decorating a room? Look at it through a camera lens because it will […]

DIY Sea Glass Bottles

I discovered a cool trick this week & I had to come here on the blog & share it with you guys. It was kind of a super random product that I tried out that I was actually shocked that worked. I was on Amazon one night browsing & I came across [this product] & HAD […]

Hotel Porch Sign

Last week our house was finally painted & it’s now looking more and more like our dream farmhouse. I was waiting for the house to be painted until I really started doing anything on the outside.. I don’t know why, but I just wasn’t that motivated. Well, this past weekend I took a few minutes […]

Piano Decor – Farmhouse Living Room

We have now been in the house for about a month. Wow! It feels like we have been here for no time at all yet it feels like we have been here forever. We are in full construction mode in the house & I have a feeling it’s going to be like that in parts […]

Dining Room Makeover – Shiplap Update

Hi guys! Today I thought we might be posting about our painted dining room today, but that darn shiplap in the dining room proved us wrong! It was actually harder than we thought. Let’s get something clear… Mr. LMB did most of the work & I just helped.. you know by standing on stools and […]

Barn Painting

This week at the shop was a fun week for many reasons. Our little store, The Found Cottage, is happily & sadly quite full with not much room for other artisans in our area right now, but this week we welcomed a new vendor who brought in her amazing happy paintings & she brightened our […]

Painting Our Farmhouse – Drama & Prep

A few weeks ago I blogged [here] that we were painting our farmhouse. Well, it’s not painted yet. Everyday I get questions about if our house is painted yet or what color we chose so I decided to come on here today & share what our house looks like today after some prep for the […]

Hanging Lead Glass Window

Almost a year ago I picked up one of my favorite junkin’ finds of all time. I paid a pretty little penny for it, but knew that I had to snatch up right then or I probably wouldn’t find one in that good of shape again & I was right. What was it? A beautiful […]
