Second youngest sister Carol might be coming out for a visit tomorrow so I've been trying to get some of the cleaning finished.
So I thought I would get rid of the "New Orleans" house:
|When I got it, I thought it had possibilities but I found it had doors/stairs leading to nowhere and windows on the outside that had solid walls behind them...|
|Some of the extra wallpaper, etc., that came with it...|
|The beautiful 'wrought iron' that came with it.|
|Thought I might be able to salvage this piece of flooring but the heat that was required to 'unglue' it warped it too badly for it to be saved..|
|Couldn't save this flooring either.|
|Did manage to save all this trim from the outside of the second floor.|
|One of the things I loved about this house was the storage drawer under this rom|
|There were a lot of doors and stairs leading to nowhere.|
|Incredible amount of doors and trim that I was able to salvage as I took the piece apart!!|
|The base of the stairs on the bottom right.|
This is one of those "LITTLE" projects that took forever. Well, not exactly forever but almost three hours!
BUT, on the other hand, I did manage to salvage a whole pile of great trims,doors and other pieces from it. (And it will take me even more time to clean them up to use them - BUT since these things aren't readily available here, it's probably worth the time and effort.)
On the OTHER hand, I could have thrown the whole thing in a garbage bag and taken it out to the bin. two minutes!
YES, I think it was worth it. VBG
