It was a very bright porch with lovely views, but the 1970's decor just wasn't in keeping with our renovation goals.  So we began to turn the decorating clock back to the 1770's...

The carpet and paneling had to go.  To our delight, under the paneling was beautiful vintage Dutch clap boarding.


Removing the drop ceiling restored the original pitch to the room's ceiling line and made for a perfect backdrop for the harvested tongue and groove "beaded" board from the small outbuilding. Cutting the opening in the wall from the main Tea Room to the porch.
