I am Wendy, the creator and sole editor of A Coastal Cottage. I started this blog to document my journey in remodeling my home that I purchased in January 2014. I am a soon-to-be single/divorced mom living in sunny Sarasota, Florida – known for its beautiful beaches. I am a big DIYer and love to do things on a very small budget…I always love a challenge. That, and I am a frugal person; I don’t like to spend big.
I am originally from Knoxville, Tennessee, so that is where the touch of farmhouse comes into play in my home. I grew up going along with my mother to many antiques shows and flea markets, always on the hunt for old goodies.
I still have a long ways to go on remodeling my home and this will not be a quick fix for me as I am dealing with a divorce and all of the financial adjustments that come with that. Please stick around by subscribing to my blog. I hope to be an inspiration to many who are like myself and can’t afford expensive remodels. I also enjoy sharing my shopping trips with my followers. Who doesn’t love a great find at a great price?! One day I hope to have a working relationship with the TJX company as I am a huge supporter. For now, I will continue as I have and hope to keep you intrigued and inspired!
