My wonderful old house has a wonderful old attic! It's big enough to create another room with it's neat octagon shape. But for now it's just a storage room. My daughter needed pictures of the corner brackets that used to decorate the outside, she's nominating the house of the National Historic Register. So I went up there to photograph them and decided to look around at some other cool things up there.
These smaller ones were probably on the porch or bay window, I'm going to paint them and put them on the corners of the bay window this spring.
There are four old doors there, not sure if they are from downstairs where arches are now?
They have the original knobs and key holes!
My great aunt used to live in this house, so I know these stairs used to lead up to a trapdoor or possibly widow's walk or flat area on the roof. With the new shingles, we closed it up. It would make a really neat spot for a skylight if we ever decide to create a room up there!
I have one item for sale in my antique shop that came from the attic, I have no idea what it is or what it's for, but it would be neat as a wall hanging or just displayed on a shelf , they're about 7 inches in diameter and I have price of $8 on the pair-
What's in your attic?
