Progress in the receiving hall......


Renovation is moving along on the house at a slow but steady pace.
 Right now we are working on the receiving hall aka the foyer.
This is how it looked when we bought the house.




The wallpaper has been stripped and we are repairing the cracks in the plaster walls and painting the woodwork and lincrusta wallpaper. 
Next the parquet floor tiles will be removed and the fir floor underneath will be sanded and sealed.




Happy Wednesday my friends!

Oh my gosh Des it looks so much brighter with just the paper down. Love that wood design wainscotting on the bottom of the wall. So beautiful. That foyer is probably the size of my living room lol! Love this house and love that you are showing us the progress. Bravo to both of you.
Hugs,
