Hopefully we will soon be seeing some progress on the restoration. For now, I am going to start featuring a room of my house each week, show the before pictures, and then show you the plans I have for it.
Here are some of the pictures we have of what the front hall looked like years ago:
I love the doors!
Sadly, by the time we found the house, vandals had busted out every piece of glass in the house, and had destroyed the staircase. This is what we found:
We found a lot of pieces of the handrail scattered all over the property, and are going to do our best to repair it. We are going to have to find another newel post. We are going to have to either find stained glass windows to replace the three in the stairwell, or have some made. I am not going to go back to the original dark colors…I want something a little brighter and more cheerful!
Here is my Pinterest board that I have been putting together with ideas for my front hall:
Let me know what you think about my ideas!
