The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

My Photo
Location: Crow Mountain, Arkansas, United States

Synopsis: This is a cautionary tale. A seriously disturbed couple find the charming, old ruin of a Queen Anne Victorian in Russellville, Arkansas, and buy it for $1.00. They tore the roof off, cut it in half, and had it moved to some land they owned sixteen miles away because they didn't know any better. Since then, they have hired and fired contractors, had all of their tools stolen, re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, and essentially rebuilt the entire house. Their only problem is that after four years it still isn't finished. Now they are tired, broke, and wonder what in the hell it is they've done to themselves. And, it's haunted.

The Kitchen: The End is Always Near

My wife was thoroughly disgusted with the sorry ass “finished” pictures of our kitchen, so she took some better ones. Here they are:

Just a little more paint and this damn room will finally be finished…

love the floor, beadboard, adventurous color (very regal and fitting the Queen), and the rounded doorway.

Thanks everyone!

N&S, I think the paint is American Standard. It is waterbased laytex but I don't remember the color's name. I think we may have used it all, but I'll see if I can find the bucket.
