Room with a View

When I was working on the washer in the laundry room last week, I was reminded of how much things have changed in there since we bought the house. It's light and airy like a sun room now.

When we bought the house, the laundry room was really cute ......on the outside.
But the 2 windows were pretty small, so inside, it was a dark cave.
One day while weeding the flower bed outside of it, and tearing out tons of ivy, we knew we had a problem when the siding started coming off with it. It had a major case of dry rot and we ended up replacing the two window walls. It "opened" the opportunity to add more windows and light to the space. I've always loved old houses with corner windows.

I prayed....(we had just married off a daughter and the funds were low), went to a salvage yard and found 5 matching old windows, the basic size I needed, (That was a miracle!) and trimmed them down to fit. It was a PAIN but each and every one of the 45 panes had to be cleaned and re-glazed.

It was sooooo worth it.
