I’m still in the process of putting finishing touches on the foyer, but I have before/after pics

Before: Victorian wallpaper, free-standing staircase, front bay removed

After (1): Staircase cleaned and retouched, new wall with closet, updated color scheme that carries into music room beyond.

After (2): You can glimpse the old wallpaper inside the closet.

I need to add pictures and things to soften it up. That’s the fun part.

I’m stymied on my repair to the highboy. I found cabriole legs that are almost the same, and sanded them into shape. And then discovered I have no black paint. The path to dollhouse repair is never smooth.
