Then Slam Dunk ..REALITY sets in and the Grand Lady is knee deep in five layers of wallpapers and a room that resembles a war zone. Saddly the truth about renovating an old house is that ..IT IS ALOT OF WORK !!!! ( Huff and Puff )
Vision , patience and the ability to look past the rubble into the ' eyes' of the old girl is a must . I mean doesn't every old gal deserve a facelift sometime in her life... Doesn 't the Grand Lady deserve to become a " Swan" in the fading days of her somewhat crusty centurian youth... YES MA"AM !!!
This is the curved plaster wall in my music room....Thank goodness it's intact.... I must admit I felt like a Cosmetic Surgeon peeling the layers of paper off the face of these walls. It was like peeling an onion. Sometimes you just sit in the mess and sometimes you cry for joy... Halleluia, bring on the plasterers !!!!! Infact Let's invite them all for afternoon tea !!!!
