Hidden Treasurers.....

On the July 4th holiday, we had nothing planned so we kinda worked a bit. I added tons of new products to my online shoppe and my husband, Russ, decided to remove the nasty carpeting on our back stairway leading from the kitchen to the two bedrooms above the kitchen and Keeping Room.

Once again he found a hidden treasure! Take a look at these steps which were painted in pumpkin colored paint!


Oh, the joy in the little things! He also knows that the bedroom floor has the same painted plank floors, but that's a task for another day.

He also discovered a hidden door behind drywall. A grand-daughter of a previous owner had once told us that our kitchen counters and cupboards were different than they are now and that behind our kitchen cupboards was once the original doorway leading up to those bedrooms above. Well, Russ found the door still behind drywall, but again....that's a task for another day. He already has it planned to frame it out and leave it exposed. That makes a total of four hidden doors that we have found. One opened up to our foyer and the two in the Keeping Room (which you can see in the pictures of the Keeping Room in the virtual tour of our house on our website) lead to the outside, but were covered over with stucco.

We'll post pictures of that hidden door when we get the time to uncover it!

Many Blessings,
Mary Jo
