I'm excited to show you the living room/dining room at Doc Holiday! It started off
as two rooms...
Here's a photo of the living room "before" with its not-so-lovely blue bamboo wallpaper (probably all the rage in the '70's) and the opening leading into the dining room.
After a lot of consideration Henry and I decided to remove the wall between the two rooms and open the space up.
We were super-excited to find wood walls behind all that bamboo wallpaper! And, once the low, stippled-sheetrock ceiling was removed, it was great to see that the wood ran all the way up to cover the vaulted ceiling! And there was a wood floor underneath the yucky carpet!
Blessing upon blessing!
|The carpenters removed some of the ceiling to allow for cleaning (you don't want to know) and access for the insulation foam to be applied.|
Finding something positive during the demolition phase was a new experience for me. Usually I live with a little black cloud of dread hanging over me during demo because usually the news is bad news. Expensive news. This time--good news. Thrilling!
I actually think the room looks more beautiful after demo than before. Even in its raw state, it's a beauty instead of a beast! Can't wait to show you more.
