Looking at the staircase, I could just see this lady in this grand dress walking down this staircase. It took my breath away.
It turned out just great. It's another example of going with the flow. Each room has something that was a mistake that turned out so much better -- that gives the house so much character. Every place that that happened, I wound up loving it so much more than the original.
You could see what it could be. I could not believe they were going to tear it down, so I bought it not knowing what I was going to do with it.
When the porch was done, I started looking around for some (lions), but you can't buy the big ones up here, so I decided to put the baby ones on to see how they looked.
