What you won't find in this old house is a great room. One of those soaring two story open kitchen, dining, living areas. You'll find a great room in almost any of the self respecting MacMansions of today, but not here.
But what you will find is a good sized room for an old house that seems to get the job done.
There is an assortment of all kinds of furniture from just about every room in our former house.
I even rescued those two white chairs from the basement. I had totally forgotten about them, but it feels like all the pieces are getting along and playing nice in the new living room.
Every once in a while something turns out the way you planned. This London Shade turned out to be everything I was hoping it would.
Although the picture sure didn't. I have soooo much respect for all you great blogger photographers. Please tell me it will get better if I work at it, please!
Now is a good time for the more sensitive readers to STOP.
For those who are up for a few graphic before pictures, carry on.....
There it is all that wallpapered loveliness. Although we had to rip off the 1970's paneling to find it.
Aren't the old window casings about the coolest thing about old houses?
Well, we may not have one of those amazing Great Rooms so we just call it our
"Pretty Good Room".
Do you have a great room in your house?
