We got two big things finished over on the Pope Residence project today. First is the one that matters: the stair railings! Ooh.
Everything finished getting painted. Once it was dry, Chris had to attach the pieces to each other. There was no way to do it outdoors, so he very carefully used the acetylene torch.
The results looked like this.
After that, the welds got painted. Carefully since it was indoors.
The trim on the other side of the stairs is next. But it’s already pretty glorious.
Yes, the new extreme pink rugs arrived and are in my office. I also brought my favorite heirloom table over for the lounge corner.
Lee and Chris also brought my new filing cabinet over, and it’s by the smaller pink rug.
I found I had a little spare time today, so I put the crystals on the old chandelier we painted white.
I am not putting the ugly plastic bits back on. Maybe I’ll get other crystals or something. As it is, it makes a nice pattern on the ceiling.
Now there are just a few touch-ups and such left, but we’re just about ready to get final inspection.
