This last week Rog and I went to check on the demo progress on one
of our homes. I love this part! This is when we can
peel away the layers and take a good look at we get to work with.
Almost always we find treasures.
Well, treasures to some of us:)
Check out this ceiling that was covered up by
sheet rock and insulation. Bummer we won't be able
to keep it since we are adding a second story:(
But we're going to salvage the wood and use it
somewhere else in the house:)
Wish I had a before pic of this fireplace:(
When the guys were doing the demo, they pulled off the brick
and tore out the hearth and underneath it all
they found bags of.....
What in the world? They had been walled over, sheet rocked over,
and bricked over for who knows how long!!
The guys were like coooool!!!!
I was like- is grandmas china in there? old silver?? vintage jewelry???
anyyyything I would want????
Ugh no. Just stupid guns.
We only kept the one below. Because it was from
like 1903 and it just looked cool:)
While I was bummed to know there wasn't bags of the
green stuff (aka cold hard cash) in the hearth,
I did however find this fabulous wallpaper
in the bathroom that is fun to look at:)
Since this bathroom is going to be a goner, I'm gonna
have the guys save me a square of it so I can frame it:)
Sure could have used those bags of money that weren't in the
hearth for my trip on Sunday...
I'm going to see my sister for TWO WEEKS in Sydney, Australia
with my mama!!!
I can't WAIT!!
So I'm lettin you know that this girl here ain't gonna be doin no bloggin
till I get back, ok??
