Meet & Greet - Cottage & Vine

Meet Rene, with Cottage & Vine. Here is a picture of where she blogs. Cute, right? She is one talented lady! Cottage and Vine is one of my daily read's. I find so much inspiration from Rene's DIY's and decorating talents. She is an interior designer in Greensboro, North Carolina, but also offers Internet design consults where she creates amazing mood boards for you. Here is a picture of her own fabulous home.

Doesn't her home look straight out of  Cottage Living Magazine?!

Rene also has a knack for finding great vintage finds that she has for sale in her Etsy shop. You can also see if there are any new finds in her Etsy store on her blog. Here are two items I have been drooling over from her shop.

Lion Head Book Ends

Set of Reader's Digest Books

 It might sound silly, but her blog is so well laid out. I love how she has a column of "Categories," which makes it so easy to find past posts, DIY's, Before & Afters, ect.
Here is a picture of a cabinet that Rene spruced up. It is one of my favorite DIY's she has done. I love the color and the hardware!

To see the Before & After transformation of this cabinet and many other projects of Rene's go here.

If you live in N. Carolina  and  looking for someone with excellent design experience or just want a second opinion, contact Rene! Also don't forget to check out her etsy shop if you love unique vintage finds.
