I love my husband. I REALLY love his design for our new kitchen.
First, we had to demolish our
existing crappy kitchen. I hated that beadboard paneling.
We took it down and the framing around the two windows.
I love the original door and transom window above it. We’re keeping those but hacked off the wood framing around it.
You know we’re always finding old gems when we start digging into the cracks and crannies of this old house.
Check this out…we found the ORIGINAL sash windows buried in the wall.
It still had the weights and ropes connected to it.
I did some research online and it said that sash windows were used in traditional Victorian homes, and the sashes would slide up and down to open and close the window…they were counterbalanced by lead weights on cords.
Very cool stuff. Very cool.
