Breathing Life Into Old House, Continued Part 2


I previously posted renovations on my 113-year-old house this is a continuation of that post. When I left off at the last post we had just installed the carpet and were beginning to work on window treatments.
Dining room windows
Because we're on a budget I was able to spend less by going with period Drapes and curtains and blinds. You can find up a lot of these outdated drapes and lace curtains at thrift stores and secondhand shops.
Add furniture, my mother oil paintings and it's home. Still a lot of work to do this all began in the first week of June and what you see is what has been accomplished up to this point.
