a bright montreal retreat.
One of our lovely readers, Sarah, along with her boyfriend, have almost completed a renovation of a 1950′s cottage they purchased months ago in Montreal, Canada. When Sarah’s grandmother passed away, she left money that Sarah was sure she wanted to use as a down payment. When the couple toured this home so many details reminded her of her grandparent’s home that she knew it was the one.
Sarah describes, “We even got to meet the older lady whose home it had been for over 40 years. She agreed we needed to gut the kitchen immediately as she said she would have done it herself if she’d had the energy. With her blessing we got to work opening up the kitchen to the dining room/living room, removing carpet, refinishing the wood floors, removing two layers of wallpaper and painting over all the dusty rose. We’ve done all the work ourselves and are so happy with the outcome-a bright, cheery easy to use space.” Stay tuned to Sarah’s blog for upcoming details of the home’s before and afters!
