Secrets of an old house....


I live in a very old house....and sometimes, I make the decision
that little "cosmetic fixes" are the best means to the end.
For instance
In this picture, there was a seam line between the lower
wall and the wallpaper - a chair rail wouldn't work.....
So -- hot glue gun and vintage lace to the rescue!


This will work until the day when we have a cash surplus and can
indeed redo the walls in an HGTV kind of way (insert "sure, when pigs fly" here)
until then,
 vintage lace it is.


works for me....

I like it, that kind of thing creates the unique-ness of houses.

I don't mean to be negative here, but HGTV's focus recently seems to be "conform conform conform". Personally, I am much more impressed with homes that reflect the owner's own flair. That is why the blogosphere is so valuable. I can find much more true inspiration in creativity here than on HGTV. THEY should be coming to YOU, Kari.

Cheryl...I so agree. I do love individuality in homes. Has to express who we are-- not the current "rules" or trends...but our very own personality.
