Another Picture for the Conservatory

Now that the conservatory is painted I am excited to hang some art on the wall.

First piece was this peony print.  Next, my mother’s print of Notre Dame in Paris.

The openings from left to right: bathroom, closet closet.

The doorways will ultimately get trimmed.

We still have lots of renovation supplies to go through and/or put away but I’m not planning to do that until we’re finished.

This will do for now.

I think Mother painted the frame green which, oddly, looks fine in the green-painted conservatory.

Are you reticent to pound nails into newly painted walls?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. “Are you reticent to pound nails into newly painted walls?” Very much so. We’ve decided to install picture rail so the only holes we make are the ones holding up the trim. Then we can change things around, at will, without making more holes.

    1. What a good and decorative idea. My father (who was a union plasterer) used to fill small nails holes with toothpaste. Ha! Jo
