Restoring a Victorian Cottage

This is our Shabby Old House located in Eufaula AL. If you have seen the movie "Sweet Home Alabama," you have had a peek of Eufaula. As Reese Witherspoon comes driving back home she actually is driving on Eufaula Ave and the first house shown is just down the street from ours.
We discovered Eufaula while on a buying trip for our store, Lace and Lures. Drawn to the charm of the town and its wonderful oh so friendly people and the famous Lake Eufaula we started to have dreams of opening a Bed and Breakfast packaging it with Fishing guide work. We thought this was a great retirement plan. So now we are in the process of restoration. I will be taking you room by room but keep in mind it will always be a work in progress, slowly but surely becoming the Beautiful Victorian Lady she once was.
Here we go.
PS...go soft on me because you will be seeing lots of pink!

Oh my goodness. God is good. I wish I could live in a cottage like this.

I am a lover of white, so of course my vote is to keep it white! My guess though, is that you want to paint it pink.
