As we continue to filter and sort through all the former homeowners' belongings left behind, we have begun some demo in the bathroom. And this lovely find camouflaged itself among the water stains and peeling paint for who knows how long. I'm plenty happy to have morels under our elms but not at all pleased to see mushrooms growing in our walls.
While all the water-damaged materials are on their way out, the lathe on the opposite wall looks lovely and new. We'll save what we can and reuse it for other projects, like a partition wall veneer. Meanwhile, the studs are coming out and the bathroom will be taking over closets on both sides.
