Things In My (Momma's) House Thursday

After a long absence, I am back with more pictures to share of my Mom's house.

Going down the hall to the back staircase. The bathroom in the background was one that was used by the guests of their B&B. Did I mention that she ran a B&B? She did. :-P On top of her other creative talents, she could cook.

The little cupboard was made for my mom by my ex-husband one Christmas.

She loved copper. When I was a child, the copper tub was used for holding magazines. Now it holds a few stuffed toys for when children would come over.

The view of the top of the maid's staircase.

This room was originally the maid's room. They had it converted to their private bathroom. My mom bought the claw foot tub and matching sink and had them refinished. I think she stored them for 20 years before they were put to use here.

She refinished the floor, however, she used a water-based varnish which was not a good idea. The results are not ideal for a room that gets wet on a regular basis. She told me to not try this at home. That's my home make-over tip for the day. :o)

Come join MommySweetMom for Things In My House Thursday and share the things in your house!!

  4. I love the bathtub. It looks like the perfect place for a bubble bath to escape it all. Haha!
