Ew. Ew. Ew.

Lots of kitchen posts to come (hint: trip to Ikea), but before that, let's take a quick peek at the upstairs bathroom.  In particular?  The walls. 

Apparently our row house walls (outside the kitchen, where they added drywall) are all plaster lathe and horsehair, as evidenced by  THE.  HORSE.   HAIR.   IN.  THE.  WALLS.


  1. Yes! My mother's ENTIRE HOUSE (old Victorian farmhouse) was plaster and lathe with horsehair. This is how you know you have a historic home. Embrace it.

  2. I know the horse hair seems gross (and is a huge problem is one is allergic) but it has amazing powers of sound baffling and insulation. Love your paster +horsehair!


Your comments give me a thrill. Thank you.
