It’s Sunday…so it must be time for The Cottage of the Week here at The Cottage Market. It’s a little moment in time where we can sit back…put our feet up…enjoy a cup of something yummy and enjoy some beautiful decor. I am very excited that we are going to be knocking on the door of… Mom 4 Real
I am so happy to share this fabulous
Cottage of the Week with you today and introduce Jessica to those of you that might not know her all ready!
Jessica is simply a doll! Her blogging mission is to show other women that you don’t have to have a big budget or break the bank to make huge changes in your home. WOW is she right…she has taken her home and totally made it her own by using paint and a lot of imagination!
She shares that many a samples have been used along with chalkboard paint and wine corks to make old furniture into works of art. So let’s take a peek at this loving home that Jessica shares with her husband Matt and her two adorable children Cameron and Mary-Kate.
Another thing Jessica loves to do is to keep it simple!!!
Meet the whole family!
Now that is a happy bunch!
When you walk in…you immediately smile! You are welcomed with a cheery hand painted parquet floor.
The living room is comfy cozy.
If you are ooooing and ahhhing at the coffee table…you have to know that Jessica made this cork top and you can to with her DIY.
Jess wanted to spruce up the living room a bit more for Summer so she created that barn door look that she has been wanting so badly! Check out her chest redo…she rocked it.
The mantle is a focal point in the room and changes with the seasons. I love it!
Here’s a sneak peek at the Valentine’s Day Mantle…Jessica had some extra inspiration after re-reading The Notebook.
This is a perfect space for the family to enjoy each other.
Now we are off to the Kitchen…a very happy one indeed. Aqua is the accent to the wonderful white cabinets and it sure looks fabulous with the open shelving.
There’s a new sink in the kitchen and Jessica share’s the DIY!
You can also get the How To for these wonderful faux granite countertops…yes…they are faux and Jessica did it all with paint…awesome right!
You will find craftiness everywhere you look…check out this Frosted Polka Dot Mason Jar Vase…how adorable and perfect does this look!
The Breakfast Nook is so comfy cozy…it use to be a crafting space but Jessica decided to take it back and how adorable does it look!
There are so many sweet touches that make a house a home.
The Dining Room is fresh and fun!
A picture perfect place to share a meal.

Jessica completely upcycled an old vintage dresser and made an AMAZING ART center… her daughter will be creating here forever and a day! You have to go see the before and get the diy…all I can say is WOW!!!!
