Last week I showed you some fun things we did during our ‘Weekend in the Country’ time… here’s where we were headed from Hayward, WI…

Isn’t it beautiful?

The library in ‘Our House’ has changed a lot over the past 17 years that we’ve lived here. In fact, when it first started out, it was the dining room for the previous owners.
Here’s a little look at how it was and how it is now:
First, it was just a super plain box of a room… basically everything has changed inside the walls of the original room. click here to read the rest of the story…
I showed you this ‘before’ picture once, or a peek at it, when I told you about the chandelier we replaced with this lovely antique one.
