I’m Lovin’ It – The Cottage Chick

It’s been a while since I shared another blog on I’m Lovin’ It but when I had the chance to meet Denise, The Cottage Chick in person at Blissdom I just knew I needed to share her site with you!

Denise and her family live in a 100 year old farmhouse (my dream!) that they are renovating.

Having many years with no money to fix up her house, Denise had to adapt to a less-than-rich lifestyle.  She discovered ways to get very creative with decorating!

I’m seriously in love with that Pottery Barn mantle!

Cottage style decorating allowed her to  take something and make it beautiful for pennies!  With a can of paint, a glue gun, and some sandpaper you can do wonders in your home!

She has so many resourceful posts like

“My hope is that you will find this blog a source of inspiration and starting point to spark creativity in your own home”

~Denise, The Creative Chick

Go be inspired!
