Every once in a while I'll see a set of photos that are just too pretty to only share via Pinterest, so I'll bookmark them to put in a post when I have a few minutes. And this cottage makeover by Trina and her husband, Mike, at their farmhouse in Oregon is definitely one of those things that needed to be here on the blog! They started by adding wood beams to give the space character, added a built-in hearth and fireplace in the kitchen area (which is complete with electric logs for those cold winter nights), and used a dove gray porch paint on the wood floors to give the mismatched finishes a uniformed look. Designer Heather Bullard came in at the end and styled everything for Cottage Living, which is where these photos were published. Gorgeous, right?
