    WOW! Lori, does she have the inside of the outhouse wallpapered in florals. It’s a long story, my great aunt wallpapered hers making for a chic little PortaJane. Gorgeous view of country charm and nice treatment…Jules…Favor

  • Thank you Jules!!! I’ll have to check the inside next time!!

  • Thanks!!! Not sure who would want a pic of an outhouse but it did look pretty!
