Over the years, we have made some interesting discoveries during project demo. Frequently, we unearth old newspapers like this one yesterday from 1940. "4 grapefruit for $.17... lamb chops $.25/ lb" tells a story of the good old days! Have you ever made any great discoveries during a project?

Yes, when I bought my house and started stripping decades upon decades of painted over
wallpaper? Underneath the last layer were the words "this house was built May 27, 1927 by ____________". The builder of my home. Underneath that was written "This house was wallpapered by such-and-such in 1988." I wrote above it. "This house was completely renovated starting April 28, 2011 by Tamara L. Keegan". I almost want to frame it out and leave it as is.
Yesterday I scored a very nice French Provincial style desk. I stripped the top in prep for Dark Walnut (my fav) stain. What color should I try on the body and drawers? Any suggestions? Here's the color chart. http://cececaldwells.com/paint-color-chart/
I used insulation foam boards, cut into 15"x15" squares. Than I covered each with batting and fabric using duct tape. To hang on the wall I used double-sided velcro so they can be taken down to clean, or rearranged. It really made this drafty room so much warmer.
