Our 1930s Keeping Room. . .going, going, gone. . .
We've lived in this 1930s farm manager's home for seven years!
It sure doesn't seem like it.
It's already time to re-plaster and paint.
There are cracks and dings and just general use blemishes.
Since we teach classes in open hearth cooking in this room,
we decided to "back-date" it.
While most people up-date their homes,
we'll be returning our keeping room to the 19th century
with primitive furniture and accessories.
So take a quick look--
the next time you see this room,
it will look entirely different.
I'll keep you posted. . .
I've already unpacked my collection of redware.
The Scottish sideboard will go into storage for a while.
There's four primitive cabinets replacing it.
