not only was it smack in the middle of the hallway and living room - but in every room along the perimeter of every wall
anyway the ones in the living room were removed yesterday - time for those babies to go.............................
you know those stories you read about where people find all kinds of hidden treasures under walls and such?
I'm sooooo excited to show you what we found that I can barely contain myself
are you ready?
lovely, isn't it?
it's definitely very old - and yet in such pristine condition - so it has to have some value, no?
and this - a handle from a tool?
and one red package that looks suspiciously like an old Du Maurier package..............which was being used as a shim ( you'll find more people today are smoking du mauri ori ori ay - have had that jingle in my head all day - I can even still remember the girl smoking them in the commercials - 70's I think )
I'm not going to get rich but those panelled heaters are Gone Gone Gone ...................
They took up more space than you can believe - all different angles and heights - a friend of mine said it looked like a 60's ski lodge lmho
We're going to make new ones out of MDF - uniform ones -
Oh I wish I had been blogging 2 houses ago when John and I made radiator covers
Anyway - here we are - box free in the living room
The floors have been patched
and there's light at the end of the hallway
here's the before of that particular view
Did I show you all the fridge niche?
Sorry - really can't remember - here it is - with it's " backside" in the mud room - which means it takes up
zero space in the actual kitchen
Did I show you the microwave niche?
Here it is with it's " back side " on the other wall in the mudroom which means it takes up zero space in the kitchen
I was going to make a " butt " niche - so that when someone stood in the kitchen they wouldn't be taking up any space at all either but you can overdo niches - so I won't bother with that particular one.
(All in all it's just another niche in the wall........................)
Now excuse me - I have a couple of more walls to knock holes into - I'm sure there's money somewhere in this place !!!
Have to tell you - some of your comments make me laugh my head off - some make me giggle - ALL make me smile on days when there's sometimes very little to smile about - THANK YOU so much.
There's been a few moments in the last month where I've seriously considered shutting down my little blog because I'm not doing my bit - but as long as some of you are interested in what's going on here - I'll keep documenting it :)
Enjoy your weekend everyone
( weekend? what's a weekend? it's sounds sort of familiar but I can't quite put my finger on it - does it have something to do with 2 days off? )
