500 posts and a little cottage renovation...

Hi, Reader..I am sure you are interested in all things Coastal Nest and every little aspect of my life on the coast...NOT..BUT..
 I thought I would show you what has gotten me all fired up..Not ONLY ..yes I said..
NOT ONLY have I written 500 posts of complete and utter nonsense on this blog, and you..my dear reader, have stuck with me (have you?? )
through thick and thin,   but...we got a cottage dropped in our laps this weekend.
literally..
We were flabbergasted when we got a phone call this last weekend about our good ol beach neighbor wanting to sell.

Steve and I kind of freaked out a little bit, no..ALOT.. and then decided, what the heck..
LETS GO FOR IT!
This (almost) darling little 2 bedroom cottage is ours.



As you can see, it has been through a little renovation, so its not as bad as the Coastal Nest Cottage was when we purchased her, but its still not up to snuff.


She will be up and ready for summer fun by mid May..
We are mostly pumped to start another project that we can work on together..and my creative juices are just a flowing!
That kitchen will get a re-do, all paint will be new, furnishings..dont get me started..
Its going to be a darling little place soon enough.
If your interested in renting for a summer weekend give me a shout out, or go here..

The best thing about it...
Its RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET from this little darling of Pacific Beach!
(oh, and by the way, COASTAL NEST COTTAGE will be a FEATURE in Cottages and Cabins..May issue) Lord have mercy!!
WOOOOOOOOT!

--all the best to you, my dear reader..thanks for stickin around..
More fun and adventures, coming up!
xxoo

I love how you decorated your first cottage...so I can't wait to see the new one! We live pretty close by in Gig Harbor, WA...I would love to rent the cottage at some point. Congrats on the magazine feature.
