Although living in an old brownstone comes with the headaches of a decaying building, it also offers charming details like...
Molding and wainscotting
(Horribly stuck) pocket doors
Tin tile (or is it molding meant to look like tin?) ceiling. And the fireplace is defunct but we'll have a mantel for hanging Christmas stockings this year!
Reveling in built-in and open shelving
I wanted this kitchen cart ($25 on craigslist, doesn't get better than that!) so bad that after a failed attempt to fit it in a car, I walked it over a mile home.
Then there are more recent additions, like a wall of forest wallpaper
After my previous bedroom, which was a huge all purpose sort of room, I'm loving this cozy little cavelike bedroom that's only for sleeping.
The bathroom is a work in progress and the tub needs cleaning so bad I haven't showered there in over a week.
In fact the whole place needs cleaning and I'm procrastinating right now...
