Wanna See The SE Corner?
For the last two months I have posted many updates on the completion of the parlor in the 1894 Cross House.
But the south-east corner, the corner with the mantel and over-mantel, has been conspicuously absent from these many posts. This is because there were big holes in the SE corner, created to snake in wires so that the 1894 gas/electric sconces, which had been plastered over and long forgotten about, could be resurrected.
So, while I worked away at the other three corners the SE corner was…ignored. Also, I felt kinda overwhelmed at the task of repairing the big holes although I don’t understand why. I have repaired hundreds of such holes over the decades. The job is not hard. Yet for some reason every time I would look at the SE corner my mind would go numb.
Finally though, with the SW and NW and NE corners done I had to face up to my inexplicable procrastination and get the damn holes repaired.
And repairing the holes proved effortless. Gee. What was I so freaked out about? All I can say is that the human psyche is really strange.
As of today, the painting of the parlor is finished.
I now have to do some work on the base molding. And install electric outlets in the base.
Then I get to BRING IN ALL THE FURNITURE AND CURTAINS AND RUG AND PICTURES!!!!!!!!
NOTE: The parlor is now a bit…vibrant…but it will calm down after it is furnished. For example, the wall medallions, which are now highly visible, will recede after everything is in place.
