The Cross House
I have good news.
And more good news!
This post offers a two for one!
- You get to finally meet the Bo mystery light!
- You get to see — drum roll, please — the painted-at-last stairhall niche!
Yes! Can you even believe it!
Last year I began the restoration of the stairhall niche. This entailed tediously stripping off the old, brown shellac on acres of wood. Then stripping the many layers of paint off the huge radiator. Then repairing all the damaged plaster, and putting in a new ceiling. But, before a ceiling could be installed, the “snake” (a meandering AC duct) had to be manhandled into submission.
Golly. So much work for so small a space. But…what a space!
So, wanna see?
Scroll way down…
The rest of the two-story stair hall still looks like a bomb went off in it but at least the niche, and the north wall of the upper landing, are looking’ good.
Small moves, Ellie. Small moves.
