I also thought I would show you a cool thing I did in my sewing room. This room was the largest bedroom in the house and the previous owner-Mr. Rooney-used it has his bedroom. It is on the south side of the house and gets lots of sunlight and is always toasty warm. I love it.
Here is a photo of it on the day we purchased the house, remember we also bought the contents of the house so it appeared just like this.
The wallpaper in the room was this: Old and dirty.
When we started removing it we found this underneath:
You can still see it in the closet as well as a third wallpaper:
There were a few spots where I was able to remove the Cherry Blossom wallpaper in larger
pieces and I saved them.
I framed them and hung it on the wall of the room.
It looks much better in person than in these photos.
There is a bit too much glare from the glass, but you get the picture.
It makes me feel so happy to preserve the past of this house. Hubby and I have a huge soft spot in our hearts for Mr. Rooney. It is more than a soft spot, we admire who he was and how he lived.
Here comes hubby, I must get going on the buttons so I can show the big reveal tomorrow.
