The beginning

We purchased our home, me in NY and hubby here in VA finding a home. I saw pics of it but never laid eyes on it myself until we actually had purchased the house and walked in for the first time as a homeowner. Dan had been here pulling up horrible carpeting and cleaning up the floors.

This is the 2nd floor hallway looking at the attic drop down door. Notice the glowing green on the walls! That traveled down the stairs and thru the main hallway entrance downstairs. oh what fun. It was a Dow fabric grass wallpaper the first one they came out with back in the early 1970's or so. Painted after they grew tired of seeing the grass cloth I'm sure.

We close to lighten the wall colors just a bit so that they didn't stand out so much and let the light filter in.
