I’m done! I’m done! All the refinishing is done done done! The never-ending job is done! Praise the Lord! Hallelujah!
Tucked into the right side is this thin strip of Lincrusta, which I did not even know was there. But, an observant reader, Jenine, realized that…
…the Lincrusta strip on the left side was missing. I searched the basement for it; no luck. But, I have quite a bit of Lincrusta in the basement so all is not lost!
The new project is refinishing the radiator. Stay tuned to this channel for breathless updates!
Y’all have been curious about what is behind the radiator. There are lovely oak panels. I would move the radiator but it really needs to be in this location.
Then I have to finish the ceiling and repair all the plaster.
The “oak” arch is edged in Lincrusta strips. Gorgeous!
But the strips were missing on the left side, the effects of old water damage from a bathroom above (now removed). I had the strip from the right side, and the bottom. But the left strip was long gone. Or…was it?
Gadzooks! Another trip into the basement revealed the long missing left strip!
And now all is well. Except, when the bottom strip came off last week I carefully put it away so as to not lose it. And, yep, now I can’t find it! But it will turn up.
You can see how the strips perfectly mate with the never-lost strips. OMG, I get ridiculously excited about reunions.
