I had every intention of being a good blogger! My plans to write wonderful ideas and share all of the things I was up to on a regular basis were put to rest when life happened. You know, that one thing.
Kurt and I have decided to put our house up for sale. We have been busy painting, scrubbing, drywalling the basement, adding another bathroom, and did I mention painting?! I am exhausted to say the least, but it is all ready for showings, and we cannot wait to get the ball rolling. Here are just a few shots of the house, broken up into a few blog posts. There is a lot to show!
The house was built in 1910 by I.N.R. Beatty. He owned the first lumber store in town, and this was his starter home.
The railings, trim, stained glass windows, front door, and wood floors are all original to the house. We had floors restored about five years ago, and I had not realized until they were refinished how beautifully amazing the borders were.
I found the medallion on the ceiling at a garage sale. It was originally white and is made out of foam. I painted it to match the finish on the original chandelier. Most people assumed it is quite heavy and made of tin. That is the wrap of the foyer, living room, and dining room!
