Market Street Living Room Remodel & Restoration "Before / After"

Before / During / After
This is an 1800's home in Central PA. The entire space was re-done: new wiring, recessed lights, heat, windows (restored the 100 year old leaded glass front picture window), blown in cellulose insulation, fireplace and stone, stairs, (original oak paneling on the one wall was left and sanded and sprayed with satin black enamel), floors have never been finished and were covered with a 1950's blue thick shag carpet, I sanded the cherry, put a pre-stain treatment w 2 coats of General Finished Warm Cherry Stain and topped it with 3 coats of General Finishes latex floor finish, plaster walls all kept and repaired to perfection. All colors and design and furniture chosen by me. All work done by me ... no sub-contractors used at all.
Stay tuned I will continue to upload other finished areas of this home both exterior and interior as well as the ongoing work on the second, third and fourth floors. Thank you

    Wonderful job, as I have just finished sanding and sealing a floor, not as big as yours, I know the work that has gone into it. Well done, please keep posting because you and people like you keep me going on my small project :)

    I LOVE the window! The floors look great also! I'm with using anything you can that's already there plus it give character. Looks great!

    I take my hat off to you, that is a lot of work! Well done, it looks great, especially the floors and stairs. What was the stuff on the ceiling - looks like it was/is some sort of tiles?? Did you paint them?
