So the doorway to the sunroom from the kitchen has always kind of bothered me… it never seemed to fit in for an 1850 farmhouse.DSC_0295

(Sorry these pictures were taken at night– not the best I know!)


Out of curiosity more than anything else, David started prying the wood boards off to see what was underneath, taking care to not destroy the boards in case we needed to reattach them.



Much to our happiness, we discovered a good old fashioned, normal door frame tucked inside!



There was good brick on either side too apparently…DSC_0300


Taking the rest down should be pretty easy at this point.


I think it’ll make me feel better not having the cutesy wood archway there– a traditional door frame is much more my taste!  We’ll post pictures once it’s all done and tidied up.
