The Cross House
I painted the walls a greenish taupe, which is close to what the kitchen seems to have been painted originally. The frieze is a lighter color.
Between the two, I will reinstate the lost picture rail.
The colors are meant to be temporary, which means that I did not obsess over them! If I win the lottery, or marry very well, I will recreate the original wall paper to the stairhall, frieze paper, and ceiling paper.
The window trim has been tacked back onto the left window. The many layers of paint are gone and the trim is now bare wood and some of the 1894 faux oak graining still. And you know? It looks OK so I will leave it until I can find/afford a faux artist to recreate the 1894 finish.
I am ridiculously excited about getting this one wall all pretty! So very soon!
