The Cross House
Recently I did a post about “discovering” the fabulous hardware of the Cross House. Although I had been aware of the hardware, and knew that it was incredible, I did not really understand just how incredible it was until recently.
However, from Day One, I was highly aware that the first floor of the house was blessed with amazing Lincrusta.
About a year ago I did a post about the Lincrusta.
Of course, my minds simultaneously reels at the thought of how many linear feet of Lincrusta needs to be refinished. But, to advance beauty? I will walk through fire, baby! Fire!!!!!
I have been using denatured alcohol to remove the old shellac in the Cross House, liberally applied, and gently rubbed with 0000 steel wool, an old toothbrush, and a dull scraper for the intransigent bits.
