1923 – February 26th, 2009

When we began our renovation project last year, we made it clear to our contractor that we were working on a renovation, not a restoration.

Our house was built in 1923 and, while I appreciate the classic touches like these cabinet pulls, I dream of a house that is classic on the outside but modern on the inside.

Oh, and the paint on the cabinet pulls needs to go. The people who lived here before us didn’t consider removing hardward when they painted so we have a layer of paint on almost every knob and hinge in our downstairs rooms. I know replacing the hardware would freshen up the space and it seems like a small thing, but we have so much we need to do that I’ll just add it to our list. Ahh the joys pof buying an old house…
