Sunday Walk: Open House...

I saw the open house sign and I had to go since.....




I love this house. Remember. (click)





Original Fireplaces....check....





original windows and staircases.....check.




original built-ins.....check.



original butler's pantry.....check.....


but....
What the heck did they do to this KITCHEN....... YIKES........
OK......It doesn't looks so bad in this picture, but in the space it did not fit this house, and was poorly finished.

And they did it to the bathrooms too.

What material was used for the butler's pantry counter?

I'm sure this is because of my current project, but the first thought I had was what a job it would be to strip all that woodwork. Can you imagine, though?

(Totally agree--that kitchen does *not* belong in that house!)
