About Me

My photo
God does have a sense of humor, after years of infertility, we adopted 2 beautiful babies, I later had the "surprise baby"! In the very spare time I have, I love to decorate, paint, and make all kinds of things. I do repurpose old furniture and custom paint furniture for clients. I work with all types of vintage items. I love to make our house a home. I like to see how others do it and share what I do also. Contact me at alittlecountryhouse@gmail.com if you are interested in any products I have posted or if you are local to Atlanta and want a furniture face lift! Love your old junk again!

Vintage Market Design from A Little Country House



I have been painting furniture for a year now, as a business. Now, A Little Country House has jumped off in the design area. Meet the" Vintage Market Design" side of A Little Country House.
My client Katie, is a very hip, boho chic, vintage kinda girl. She is a musician, hairdresser, wife, and mom of 2 precious little kids. She called me to do her master bath. Of course, we needed to do this bathroom on a very reasonable budget.  I think we nailed it for her. I think it is very "Katie". It feels like success, to have captured her personality in this project. We made great impact without breaking bank. Take a look around and let me know what ya think! I believe I created a little Anthropologie vibe here. We still have some lighting we are finishing up,  and a super cute curtain for her new window! I will post those later, but for now, enjoy!




Meet Katie. Totally Adorable Girl!

Here is where we begin....

Bye Bye!!!!!

See Ya later...This is coming back with a new look!!!
this window had no trim..it was just sheetrock wrapped
around the sides with a wood ledge...We trimmed it out..
so much better...

A new room, for 2 lovebirds....





Bring on the vintage, romantic, a little feminine touch...
cause after all, this is our get away from the kids..right?

A little Pop of color here and there!

more detail...







Cool Pendant light , the right finishing touch




 Simple and lovely






this is ceramic tile, we did in a big, subway pattern
it has a lot of grey and we used grey grout..it turned out very pretty
and looks more expensive than it is...


I'm sick of a toilet paper holder, so we used a cute
basket....just different..

new counter top and faucet...kinda looks like an old timey pump, but new...
fresh towels! cute tub now!

remember the niceties....





This was all done on a budget....No extreme spending, to turn this
bathroom around from frumpy to fabulous...
I can do this for you too.....

Fall Feels Good!

 We  are actually, feeling some cool weather here! Shocker! I love being from the south. I hate our humidity and hot as heck summers....although, I like summer, just not the 99 degree parts. I finally got a little fall decor going . Still no pumpkins yet. I will be headed to a pumpkin patch, field trip with my youngest, so we will get pumpkins then. I am also, very excited about chili, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, apple cobbler and the list goes on for all the Fall goodies we will make.....Loving some fall.  I have a sweet friend, who is a missionary in Thailand. She has a blog called, Sweet Journey, if you want to read it. She is an incredible woman of faith. This post is dedicated to her, for her sacrifice and love for Jesus. Sherry, enjoy these images of Fall!

Happy Fall Yall!
