Well, come on in, don’t be shy.
This is the front door with clear and etched glass. The owners have painted a lot of things grey and maroon and all I can say is their grey and maroon will be my yellow and black. To the hinge side of the door is the spring loaded door bell….precious. Check out the divided light storm door.
As you enter the house to the left is the den. You enter through french doors. They had built in cabinetry designed to fit around the window, which is really great, but not really my color, but I can deal with it.
The french doors that enter the parlor.
The dining room. This is my Mom’s future project. She said, “April, that wallpaper is not you at all” and I totally agree and therefore she gets to help tear it down. The small room you see in the back is a tiny office with a pocket door.
This is the pantry, with window and pocket door off the kitchen….I think I might utilize it more as a mud room, coat and backpack storage spot.
The upstairs bathroom…ahhhh, white cabinets….finally. These are keepers, but again with the wallpaper, buh-bye.

I love that some of you readers critique the period detailing. I know those cabinets aren’t keeping with the period of the home and we will have to remedy that someday. Yes, I’m a tad bit disappointed that the cabinets, especially in the kitchen, weren’t white, but sigh, it’s the nicest kitchen I’ve ever owned, so I won’t complain too much.
I also agree with the banister, I need to take a closer look at it when we get in to see when that was changed.
Clay has already started scribbling little sketches of an addition. My mom has called a couple times telling me how we’re going to take down all the wallpaper and what rooms need to be added to the main level. Big plans, people, big plans.
