Photos for the Loo and Us

We’re getting to the point in the renovation where we can actually start putting decorative items around.

I printed two photos of the house after the outside walls were removed and the sheathing exposed.

As I mentioned here I wanted to hang photos of the house during the demolition that show where the lumber for the rustic details of the conservatory bathroom come from.

I have a lot of fancy frames but the conservatory bathroom calls for something rustic.

I was hoping to find a matching pair of frames in my vast frame stash but unfortunately I have to settle for 2 similar 8 by 10 frames.

I think this will be a fun way to highlight the fact that the lumber in the conservatory bathroom came from the walls of the 1946 house.

Personally, I think there' way too much me in this picture.

As to “us” I also have a new photo of Charlie and me that is NOT going into the bathroom.  I found 2 frames in the frame pile: one a traditional 8 by 10 frame

The photo above and this one are the same size. This is about a 7-inch square opening.

and the other a square frame.

Let me know which one you like better before I cut the picture. (I guess that tells you which way I’m leaning.)

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.
