Our New Old House

1918 Bungalow

Stupid kitchen trim.

Will the wonders of my kitchen ever cease?  Maybe.  I worry I’ll start to miss the disgusting walls and the gag-me-with-a-spoon froo froo trim.    And then I start pulling it down and the act of destruction solidifies my rage over the tragedy that is the decorating job done to this poor old classic house.  Case in point:

Behold! My kitchen. It sucks. But not for much longer. Here you see the stupid trim (as I’ve taken to calling it these days) on the left and the area where I pulled the stupid trim down on the right.

Some fascinating wallpaper choices. Just fascinating.

Is that strange golden grainy stuff on the wood sap that has oozed out of the wood?

Anyway, trim is coming down and a new drywall ceiling will be going up very soon.

    I’m amazed at the projects you take on! Great work! I loved reading your posts about the woman who used to live in your house. It makes me want to find out the history behind our own house.

    I feel your pain….. We had 2 layers of nasty borders in our kitchen. After I took down the first one, I discovered a vegetable themed border with illustrations of eggplants, tomatoes, asparagus, etc. I took pictures of each vegetable and then printed them out and framed them. We now have them hanging in our kitchen just to save a little piece of the old kitchen!
