It appears after months of searching, surfing, and planning, we might have the Key West Cottage almost "finished". I tortured Chris by taking him to Ikea this weekend to get his opinion on the two biggest purchases for the cottage; the bed and the couch. We came to a decision pretty easily.
So: here are the plans. Some pics I used for inspiration can be found here.
Out front we'll put the two refurbished directors chairs. I'll probably pick up a used (white) table from somewhere to put between.
The first room in the cottage is the kitchen/dining area. I plan to use a seagrass type rug like this one under the dining set we have (which is pending some white paint).
Then to the left will be the dresser I'll paint turquoise; similar to this one
with a mirror over it; probably painted gray or, if I use the bamboo one we have, which is pale yellow, i'll see if that color works before painting
And the TV on top of this (also pending fresh paint)
If we use lamps, i have one like this.
I have two rugs similar to this to flank the bed
