The sky is falling...


5 Days and counting 'till the ceiling comes down. Chandelier we bought at an estate sale in an old historic downtown Georgian mansion. We had them throw in a scary-yellow/green-plasticlike-linen covered cool shaped wingback chair in the deal. Although in retrospect, I think they were happy when we took it off their hands. The wingback is the next thing in line to go to the upholsterers when this ceiling comes down. Its going to be black crocodile leather w/silver nailheads. Actually, I planned to send ALL pending reupholstering projects to the shop the end of the week. Sending them at the same time while we tear out the ceiling. That way we don't have to store them for the 2 month blitz.
P.S. No, this is not a log cabin. That is called shiplap and it is 6 inch wooden planks, typical construction material behind plaster or cheesecloth in this era home.
