look at what i found today...

this is a shot of our mudroom. that is the spiral staircase that leads up to our playroom. i have been really excited to do this room because it already has a ton of charm... like the original wood floors (that i cant wait to paint) and the whole opposite wall and side wall are windows and now i find this!



i just started ripping the bead board away when i spotted a glimpse of this brick. cant wait to get it all off and the glue off and new trim on. couldn't be more perfect.

and now i realize (duh) that this is what used to be the outside of the house so it is also in our (future) nursery/ sunroom... it just keeps getting better.

Just stumbled on your blog through Made by Girl. Lovely post!

I am dying to know, are you painting your woodwork? I have been fussing about mine for two years, should I shouldn't I paint it?

Lovely house!

Beautiful! Chris text Adam a few days ago and asked about our crazy lives NYC so I feel at liberty to ask now - (I'm serious when I say this, but not stalker serious because that's gross) I want a tour of this casa more than you sister wants Dunkin' Doughnuts! Which, by the way Ann, are so wonderful out here -cravings were totally justified.
