Even when windows look this badly cracked there is a good chance they can be restored with some hard work and patience. The old wood will always be more superior. Good for the weekend warriors or contact people w restoration expertise!

Here’s a nice before and after from some sash we restored this fall at a home near Lake Harriet in Minneapolis.

SO TIRED of tripping over the runner in my upstairs hall, I finally bought some two-sided carpet tape. No idea if this stuff works for any length of time, but I’ll soon find out. For now, the rug is straight. Swipe to see photos.

THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING. First – background. I am LAMP TRAMP. No light fixture is too big, too small, or too weird to join the collection. I buy lamps compulsively. Hide them FOR MONTHS in basement, attic & behind furniture until I think it’s safe to come out. Lamps are strategically bunched in groups on tables & floor, enabling new acquisitions to HIDE IN PLAIN SIGHT within PREEXISTING CLUSTERS. Usually Mike doesn’t notice new lamps but when he does, I say it’s been here for months which is NO LIE. Then – this thing arrives. I see immediately – NO MERE LAMP. It’s a winged neo-Victorian creature sprouting out of an Oompa Loompa’s diver helmet attached to a projectile festooned with faux gems & Swarovski crystals & is prenamed “Imagination.” Hiding Imagination will be IMMORAL & INFEASIBLE. I thus come clean. Mike’s not mad b/c Imagination is TOO COOL for petty conflict. Imagination then goes on 2 month traveling road show, occupying every flat space in the house before finally landing in our t.v. room. Then – a thought. What if THE WHOLE ROOM was Imagination??? What if . . . STEAMPUNK!!! The mind reels. Squirrel! I drag Mike away from kitchen remodel & share vision of STEAMPUNK BEAST ART LIGHT spanning ALL WALLS, weaving in & out of art, ship lanterns, fire extinguishers, fans, junk from his machine shop, etc. & so on. Mike says YEAH! Zooms down to basement for scavenger hunt. Within a day half the west wall is covered with a complex lighting system formed from interlocking pipes, faucets, gauges, gadgets & other odds & ends. Then suddenly he stops. Goes back to kitchen stuff. ??? That was a year plus ago. But here’s the deal. We’ve been slowly collecting parts &, I’ve been told, we will be breaking ground on phase II this winter. I think he loves me! Pic of existing west wall creation to follow, soon. #steampunk #steampunkart #steampunklamp #steampunkinterior #interiordesign #color #lamps #thebeigeblues #emotionalinteriors #oldhouse #oldhouselove #artfulliving #artfulhome #drama #dramarama #victorianaesthetic #victorianhouse #queenannevictorian #queenanne

When a house wears the colors of autumn this well, it doesn’t need any seasonal decoration. 🍂 #autumn #fall #newengland #kennebunkport #maine #oldhouse #oldhouselove #colonial #exterior #frontdoor #americana #leaves #picketfence #gate #stonewall #dappledlight #curbappeal

Just occasionally I fantasise about wallpaper, but then I look at my lumpy old daub walls and feel better. #wattleanddaub #oldhouselove #15thcenturyarchitecture #medievalhouse #timberframed

Пока шла домой, заметила, что дом покрасили. И сразу он стал очень даже симпатичным, а раньше я его совсем не выделяла. Каждый раз я радуюсь, когда старые дома ремонтируют :) #кострома #осень #прогулки #дома #старыедома #вовремядождя #kostroma #kostroma_city #house #oldhouselove #oldhouse

It’s been a good day for getting organized. 🧚🏻‍♀️ #aplaceforeverythingandeverythinginitsplace #color #oldhouse #oldhouselove

Un avant goût de notre nouveau projet 🤩. Cette belle et ancienne maison au cœur de notre village m’a toujours impressionné et intimidé.
C’est avec gratitude et respect que nous l’habiterons et la restaurerons dès le 1er mars 2019.
Nous sentons dès l’entrée que cette maison chaleureuse a abrité une merveilleuse famille de génération en génération.
Je suis toujours aussi intimidée mais très heureuse. 🤩
Je vous partagerai les étapes de sa revalorisation et de nos beaux projets ... ça vous dit... 😊?
Je dois être encore patiente quelques mois! Xx

Côté de la maison 🏠.
