Busy, as usual. Lots of different projects going on. Greg has been working on getting all the old paint off the hanging rail and I have been painting and installing it. At the same time as those trims go on we can then proceed with 'frieze" stencilling in those areas like the North wall of the room. I should soon be ready in install the doorway trim , Portier rod and the arched fretwork panel that goes above it.
In fact there will be an upcoming piece on that project outlining how the trim work is done and the fretwork panel is constructed. At the same time I've been working on the wood valance construction and pier mirrior for the east wall which will be assembled on site from the componets I've made. The overmantle mirror will come in at the same time.
We also got lucky and located a drop arm extention for the chandelier we bought. Its a nice rope brass and exactly what we wanted. Should be coming in the mail in a couple of days. I am now selecting the ceiling medallion for the room and that will be painted up and ready for install soon. So, things are coming together, we are going 15 directions at once but then that's how restoration works.
