When it was undergoing construction, we found this hand-painted wallpaper underneath one of the walls:
Today I'd like to share with you the details we kept from the original construction. We kept the original arched book nook and entryway cubby. Here's a before and (semi) after pic that highlights both of these well. This is like one of those seeing eye comics where you have to say what's changed:
We also loved this neat little hallway lamp. We cleaned it up and re installed it in the hallway, where it originally hung:
We are also reusing the old radiators (just freshened them up with paint). You can see it to below kitty:
A bonus of the new windows is a big beautiful cat sitting perch, or what normal people would call a windowsill. We had a piece of carerra marble, which we loved but unfortunately couldn't use in the bathroom cut to fit. And someone loves it.
