Kitchen cabinets – substitute for pierced tin! Martha used roof flashing and put the design upon it by hammering with a screwdriver and a nail. Then wood strips were added over the flashing and all covering an ordinary cabinet door.

The finished floor. The unique paint pattern on the bottom portion of the wall was done with a sponge.

This post adds some additional  samples of Martha’s Early American decorative touch.  In the Summer 2013 issue of Life in Galway, which is already at the printers, will feature an article on Martha’s work at in the renovation of the historic Clarissa Putnam house. There will be 1,000 copies printed and they will be available over the Memorial Day weekend. An early release will take place at the 11 AM morning worship service of the Bible Baptist Church of Galway this Sunday (May 19th).  We’d be delighted to have you as our guest. Location: 2095 East Street, Galway, NY.
