I know, I know, I can hear it now...
How many times can she reveal her entry hall?
And the answer is:
As many times as I have to...but,
I will say now - this is the last time for a long time!
You will remember that I said another room was being worked on to be revealed soon.
I said it's a room but it can hardly be called that.
Once you enter you take about 10 steps and you are in the furthest part of the Cottage
and you have already passed doors to two other rooms.
If you hold out your arms you can touch the walls on either side.
But, you couldn't touch the ceiling,
even if you happened to be a giant!
We dressed her in a new coat of white paint on the ceiling and woodwork,
washed down all the walls,
and removed the carpeting.
I wish I could say,
"When we removed the carpet, look what we found!"
I could say that, but the excitement wouldn't be as great because we already knew this floor was here.
I painted it twenty years ago, and had hopes to live with it again but...
...I had forgotten how damaged it was.
I will be the first to admit that I love chipping paint on furniture
but it just doesn't look as good on a floor.
So...this is what we did!
We ordered this Armstrong Vinyl tile flooring, commercial grade, on line from Home Depot (they don't stock it in their stores)
but we could pick it up at the store so there were no freight charges.
It comes in a gazillion colors.
Everything else is pretty much the same
except for a little re-arrangement of some pictures...
...and a couple of new rugs from Pier One.
And, of course, you have met the old married couple
who have just returned from their honeymoon.(here)
A peek from the parlor...
...from the guest bedroom
...what you first see as you enter...
... and looking in from the sitting room.
So there you have the final? reveal of the entry.
