This is the top of the stairwell where I want to hang the quilt. I wish we had pictures before removing the wallpaper but it was literally falling off the walls already so we yanked it off before taking the “before” shots. All the walls are horsehair plaster on lathe.
This hall was rather painful to paint because there are 8, yes 8, doors off the hall, 5 rooms and three closets. It was tedious!
We bought lighting fixtures to suit the time period of the house from Rejuventation, http://www.rejuvenation.com/, I highly recommend them to anyone with an older house. They have a great selection and their products are very high quality. They also have great customer service.
This is a view of the completed “quilt wall.” The railing and balusters are not done yet. We are going to paint the railing a jet black and the balusters the same “Linen White” as the rest of the trim.
You can see the boxed in hole in the wall in this shot. My husband will work on the drawers in the barn over the summer.
Here is a view of the “quilt wall” end of the hall again. The window still needs to have the paint scraped off the glass. I also need to decide on a curtain.
