Here’s some pictures as proof.
I love our step-up door to the attic-master bedroom. So many things in this old house are charming. The brass hinge that had been painted over is one. I posted earlier this year about cleaning this old hinge. You can read that post, here.
Here is what the hinge looked like when we bought the place. I didn’t even know it was something special until a friend pointed it out. And even then, didn’t discover it was brass until I started stripping the paint off.
And, in all its glory!
We installed the trim last weekend. I will be caulking and painted it over the next few days. So, this space isn’t quite done.
This is a catch-up post. This part of the barnyard was completed last fall. It pens the chickens to a sideyard beside the barn, so we don’t have to deal with them on our back steps. They had to get their wings clipped anyway. Fence is a little short.
And this rosebush was in the perfect spot already to grow up and over tthe fence to add its charm to the old barn.
The stairs up to the attic/master bedroom have been railed for months, but I realized I never posted pictures.
When we bought the place, the stairs up to the attic led to a hole in the floor, like this. No railings. Just a big drop.
The bar top was installed this weekend. What used to be a wall is now a table. Do you remember the wall that separated the kitchen from the dining room? See pictures in this post. This is how we’ve been using it for the last few months…with the counter, but no extending bar.
I’ve been looking for the perfect re-used corbels to use under the bar, but for now it has small wood supports.
