Tear the Roof off the Sucker


  1. Love that natural light! Really sets off the decor. (OK. Now just wait a minute before posting. Anything else you feel compelled to say, Ginnie? Oh! Yes!)

    Will you be salvaging the window trim? I really like it. But maybe it won't go with your mid-century furnishings.

  2. unfortunately, no. they are most likely covered in lead paint, and some are already trashed...

    i can get the same stuff at home depot and i probably will.

    i'm not really going for a mid-century look, it just so happens that i have mid-century things.

    glad you're enjoying it, gin-pin!

  3. The picture of the window from the inside is actually quite beautiful. Maybe one to frame when the house is done as a reminder of how far she (he? it?) has come.

  4. thanks! that's a good idea. i think my house is a she, because she acts like a bad girlfriend (aggravating, annoying, and expensive, but i still love her)
