Hanging Loose Ends

I received a small original watercolor as a gift.

I’m walking from the pool house toward the main house where my office is.

I was given a painting of the grounds of the house where I work featuring me walking into the picture.

The painting might look nice on the wallpaper above the piano.

We decided to hang the picture in the dining room over the piano.

Peel back the paper.

I eyeballed the middle of the wall and then cut a small v-shaped flap in the wallpaper.

The space is a little tricky due to the header notching the wall at the top.

Then I nailed in a picture hanging hook and hung the picture on it.

The dining room is bright in daylight.

The colors in the picture complement the denim wallpaper and brighten the space.

Do you have a compact system for listening to music?

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.
