Another lovely spot at the Edison estate in Ft. Myers, FL. When they moved Edison's original Florida lab up to Ford's museum up north, they replaced it with a small office for Mr. and a pretty garden space for Mrs.
We visited Thomas Edison and Henry Ford's summer estates in Fort Myers, Florida just before New Year's. 100 years ago they were spending parts of their cold winter months in the warm Florida sunshine. I liked the pool and thought the diving board looked pretty against the blue, blue sky.
Before: old accoustic tile ceiling, water-stained paneling, horrific beeblie-bob plastic chandelier. Chandelier gone to Goodwill and replaced with a nice ceiling fan. Accoustic tile ripped out and replaced with bead board.
Paneling primed (got to get in those groves) and painted.
Cats dig drop cloths.
End product: cheerful yellow walls with clean white ceiling. Lots of texture with the bead board and paneling.
