Memories of an old Reno

We used to live in Niagara Falls, Ontario. This is the house we lived in for ten years. It was your typical 1950's box. No charm or character. Over the years we made alot changes. We replaced all the windows and doors and added alot of antique looking fixtures. This is a picture of my son Sam sitting on the porch that I painted with all heritage colours. I love this picture. He was only five years old here.

The front hall closet never had a door so I sewed a curtain out of pretty yellow material. We replaced the front door with this leaded window door.
Alot of work went into this bathroom. My husband tiled the floor and installed this great vanity with a granite top. This was a great find from HomeSense.
We had a beautiful view from the master bedroom to the backyard. Here you see more shots of the deck.

My husband build this great deck off the back of the home. We used it all the time it became another living space for us. In the dining room we removed a window and replaced it with a french door to access the deck.
This harvest table and chairs was a great find for me. I came across it just before we were to install the french door.
We are off tomorrow to take our son Sam to Disney Land. He has been waiting a long time for this trip. It should be so much fun!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! Pamela


  1. Thanks for the tour. I love the curtain you sewed for the front hall - very welcoming. Sweet photo of your son with his head in his hands.

    Have a blast in Disney Land.

  2. I love the house! It looked fantastic..Amazing view off the deck! Have fun at the greatest place on earth! ~lulu

  3. I love the brick on the front of the house. the bathroom vanity is fabulous. Your yard would compare with any yard around here! what a cozy little home. I do hope you find your dream home here too. Sending heaps of fun your way.
