Two years ago my husband and I moved into an old Victorian style house built in 1910. Many of the rooms had already been updated when we bought the house, others still needed a little work. Here are a couple of photos we took as we made our first walk-through of the home.
We fell in love with the house on our very first visit, but we have slowly been making some changes that fit our style a little more. There are still some finishing touches we need to make on the bedroom so don't look at the photos too closely!
We found some old doors in the rafters of the garage. All they needed was a good scrubbing, a coat of paint, and some new door knobs.
I found this adorable two-tiered table at a thrift store. It had some serious water damage on the top tier, but it wasn't anything some sand paper, stain-blocking primer, and a coat of paint couldn't fix. Sorry I don't have any before pictures on that piece. The chairs were a cheap find at an antique store, visit this link for details.
Check out that amazing quilt, it was made by my great-great aunt. My grandma gave it to me the day we moved into our home.
This is a tea cup from my great-grandma's china and a couple of doilies given to me by my grandma.
Don't you just love this little jewelry box? I found it at an antique store for 3 dollars!
My mom painted this china for me because I fell in love with this china and couldn't afford it.
The new room makes me feel like a granny, and I LOVE it!
