The actual color of the exterior is Lunar Green. I save Lowe's coupons, and this paint was free. That old wood feature along the bottom was made from pieces of tree stumps that my husband is currently leveling. I liked these scraps because they're pale and soft and shaped just right. I'm going for a true beachfront look here, and so far it's working. Above the window is a piece of driftwood, a nice scrap that I painted with a watered-down white. The flat thing on the door is a plastic shell. I normally use real materials, but this will fit once everything is done. There will be a patio on the right with French doors where you see that large opening. I haven't yet decided on the porch or the gable end. Lots of things to consider!
A little about the interior here: I like to use old scrapooking paper on the walls because it works so well. See that printing above the cabinet? It's the back of old Somerset Studios paper that I didn't like! I'll be putting things right over that printing, so it won't show for long. Sometimes I make little art works for hanging. One of my projects has a little cross-stitched quilt. This one will be some kind of beachy textile art. Fun stuff.
The cabinet is actually a re-painted and re-imagined piece that I've had for awhile. It had been painted black - not beachy at all - and now is a shabby chic white. There's not much in it yet, but you can see my seashell (real ones!) bookends and a few things stacked on top. I will be replacing the paper behind it --- look closely and you'll see that a patch job that I did made it less than perfect.
I've added two more sets of photos on "My World in Miniature". Click on that page link under the blog header, and scroll down till you find Little Creek Run Shelter and Sunset Cottage. Of course, if you've never seen my other little places, just start looking at the top and enjoy your visit!
