Don't you love how you feel when you put on your best outfit and you know you look good? Appearance isn't the most important thing but looking our best certainly can help our sense of well-being....so Jane Coslick and I decided early on that The Coral Cottage should be painted.
Here is a "Before" picture of the little cottage as it was when we bought it--a cement structure that looked a little tired:
And here she is with a fresh coat of paint thanks to Horton Remodeling. Note the coral colored front door. Just wait until we finish with the trim and shutters!
I would be a little nervous about how bright the colors are if I had not already seen some of Jane's other projects. Jane has been involved with many Tybee cottage renovations and she is a genius with color schemes. She kindly allowed me to share some of the pictures from her website--if you want to see more just click on the names of each cottage. Here are a few of her other projects:
|Fish Camp Before
|Fish Camp After
|Key Lime Parrot Before
|Key Lime Parrot After
|Key Lime Closeup
|Amazing Grace Before
|Amazing Grace After
These cottages certainly are looking good and I can't wait to see The Coral Cottage when she is finished--in the meantime I think she already is feeling better :) What do you think? Does your appearance ever impact how you feel?
