My blog is focused on what I saw, heard about, or encountered during my day. I ZOOM IN on things I find particularly interesting, beautiful, or humorous. My interests overlap and mesh in the fields of interior design, rehab, photography, architecture, color, and anything painted. Throw in salvage, bargain hunting, recycling and that summarizes what you are likely to find on this page.
This is the room I saw when I entered this house for the first time. Paneling in a faux stone pattern covered the walls. It was hideous and one of the first things to go. I thought nothing could look worse, but I was wrong. Under the paneling I found red flocked wallpaper! (I have removed a lot of wallpaper since that day and never have I come across anything harder to remove than that paper.) It came off in the tinest of pieces over a very long period of time. Once some layers were removed it was apparent that a fireplace had been a part of this room.
