The Boathouse transformation

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

G and I are making plans for summer with the arrival of spring. 
Boy, sometimes we have to remember to just be in the moment! 
Anyway, I started thinking of Lake Winnipesaukee and the Boathouse. 
I never did finish the post about the completion of the Boathouse makeover, so here it is... (Written previously)

If you happened to be following my blog this summer, you know that I caught the "boating bug". This is a result of spending lucky summer after summer on Lake Winnipesaukee. This summer as luck would have it, I had the new project of taking on this boathouse project at The Point on Six Mile Island
The property is Ma Spaulding's beautiful rental house on the lake with magnificent views.

This little boathouse cabin is detached from the main house and was used to store various items, including the fun necessities for lake pleasure: floats, boats, oars and life jackets.

The Boathouse Project "Before"

My mission was to transform this space on a budget using only paint, existing items, and some serious organization. The space had potential, but the rafters were cluttered, the wood walls were badly stained, and there was a great need for organization.

Oh-so-many paint layers and lake swims later, 
may I present: The Boathouse!

What do you think? 
My mission next summer's is to transform 
the interior of the main house...not a bad way to spend a vacation!
