One broken tile around the fireplace. I can match it with a vintage replacement. Update: I got the replacement tile, and found out it's Batchelder. Cost of one matching vintage tile: $25!

Here's the kitchen window where the stained glass panel will replace the mirrored cabinet. A farm sink will sit directly below, keeping the same placement as the original kitchen.

This stained glass panel will replace the center mirrored cabinet in the original kitchen window. It's the perfect size, and will let more light in, besides adding a decorative, period touch!

This Mission-style table will become the 2nd bathroom vanity with a drop-in oval sink. The low shelf is a perfect place to store towels.

This is where the fountain will be placed in the new frontyard, which will be framed by a low white stucco wall. The grass has now been sprayed with something to help it die quickly for full removal. Decomposed granite paths will surround the new fountain.

We are stealing 12" from the 2nd bedroom to add to the closet corridor (one closet for each bedroom, and the linen closet has been relocated). This is creating two walk-in closets for both bedrooms, and you'd never know they weren't there when the house was built.

The original bathroom becomes the ensuite master bath, by relocating the door. The joists were showing too much wear, so, of course, we replaced the rotted parts with strong new wood.

LIttle sketch of the bathroom wall from the previous photo. We are keeping everything as it was! And yet -- everything will be brand new. New pedestal sink, same style as the old. Tile pattern copying 1920's bathroom patterns, original built-ins and medicine chest, with reproduction light fixture from -- Rejuvenation!

After deciding to bite the bullet and move the kitchen sink to a more central location, we removed the existing windows (which I will repurpose in the garage!)

Once we close up that slice of gap beneath the stained glass it will look as though these three windows have always lived together in this house...

The new stained glass panel -- from Salvare Goods in Silver Lake -- is from the same time period (1920's) as the house, and its addition is one that gives a lot of bang for the buck!

The new stained glass panel -- from Salvare Goods in Silver Lake -- is from the same time period (1920's) as the house. The open frame at the bottom will be closed and the kitchen sink will live just below the stained glass panel.

This is the spot where we will have to create a return for the ceiling cove, so that the kitchen becomes distinct from the dining room.

The ceiling detail ends just on the right, and that's about where the kitchen cabinets will begin. Can't wait to see that farm sink go in!

A Before and After of the inset closet pull on my pocket door. A beautiful Eastlake piece I decided to polish, against the usual advice --- (you don't want to lose the patina, and very shiny brass will not look vintage anymore). But here it brought out the keyhole design the makers put in the center!

Here's how I create the casing for the oven hood extractor, to match the plaster walls of the rest of the house. A finishing piece of molding will create a little shelf around the edge.
