Originally antique white, the walls are somewhat the color of cooking oil now. The blue flowers on the wall border have wilted somewhat--as has the wall border. I have refinished the kitchen table, benches, and chairs several times over the years. Too often, as it turns out. I can still see the impressions from years of homework completed on that somewhat level table.
Our original theme of "home and hearth" is now "unknown-goo-ancient-drip-cracked-counter-kid-art-on-the-fridge-and-random-wall-hanging." It has a style all its own.
We like it. We made it this way. It is the heart of our home.
