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

    those stairs are awesome and keeping with the age of the home and I love the dark wall on that side. Very nice and looks homey. Nice job. Did you stain the floors yourself ? If so with what tone?

    Love the redo . But the tv cabinet by the door would need to be moved before the door could be opened without hitting it !!!

    First @Tracy Bromage all work was done by me as I am a builder, I rarely use sub-contractors unless i am building new construction. Yes I stained the floors myself they had never been finished before and are over 100 years old. I used General Finishes Warm Cherry 2 coats to reach the desired tone I was looking for, Then used General Finishes water based urethane to top it. Thank you for your compliments
