Back in 2009 I noticed this weather worn cottage on Wolfe Island, CA (Thousand Islands) and wondered how it would be with a little TLC.  Well, somebody thought the same and fixed it up in the most charming way. 

I came across it while checking out vrbo.  The homeowner has covered the walls in an on-trend and classic horizontal planking and added cheerful touches throughout, like this bright green door on the upstairs landing.

Rag rugs on the painted floors are charming.

A cozy living room for conversation and watching the boats go by.

If you've never been to the Thousand Islands, be sure to add it to your bucket list!
