|Stripping the cast iron mantle that will house a gas burning insert|
|Colonnades were added back into their original location|
So the plan is as follows: we are continuing with the ebonized woodwork in the dining room.
|1/4 inch Oak forms the background to the wainscot and trim boards are being routed to duplicate the door trim|
We are installing a wood wainscot.
|This gold upholstery (30 yards of it) will make up the primary wall fill|
The walls will be upholstered from above the wainscot, with a Aesthetic Rose gold upholstery fabric.
Above the top plate rail will be a stenciled frieze and the ceiling will be stenciled and new medallion installed.
Hey seven weeks is breeze, right? Well of course not. the ceiling was replaced in this room at some point and they TEXTURED IT! so you might say well "just rip it down and redo it" , right? Well, no because there is 30 inches of blown in insulation in the attic, and you guessed it , it would all fall down if we tore down that drywall.
The good news is that with the wooden wainscot and the upholstered walls we don't have as much wall prep to do.
We will keep you posted!
