A house in Burlington, Vermont, is being remodeled with wood paneling and a vintage sign that reads “This Is What A Wood Paneled Home Looks Like.”

“It’s like a little piece of art from the 1800s, a little bit of history that we really want to see preserved,” she said.
The house in Burlington, Vermont was the first home of a woman in the state and the first house built by a woman to be declared historic.
The interior of the house has a traditional colonial feel, with a fireplace, oak furniture, wood paneled walls and a large, red “home” sign.
The sign also says “This is what a Wood Panel.
This is what you are thinking about.”
The house is being renovated to incorporate a variety of contemporary home decor elements including a new wood flooring, modern decor, vintage-inspired art and a modern “wood panel” sign that says “A wood panel” on the front.
The interior of “The house” is being repainted to match the exterior, according to the museum.
Museum of Art curator Jennifer Loughren said the work will also include the restoration of the original sign and its original decorative materials.
“The original sign was so beautiful, and the original artwork on the wall, it really is an example of the beauty of the old sign,” Loughron said.
She said the house is undergoing renovations to incorporate the work, including the repainting and the restoration.
Mum said she is grateful for the work.
“It’s so nice to see so many people and the city and people that love this place, and so many good things that have been happening for a long time,” she added.
“We are so lucky to be in a place like this, and I really love it.”
