Being professional faux painters came in handy because we were able to salvage the trim without stripping off 100+ years of lead-based paint. We painted faux-wood-grain on it instead. Everyone who enters can't believe it's not the original wood. Next was the crumbling ceiling and after putting100 plaster screws in to sure it up, we covered it with Styrofoam tiles faux-antiqued to look like tin. The two original tiled fireplaces were slowly stripped and varnished and a rich faux-leather finish was applied to the parlor walls under a chair rail. Crown molding in both rooms added the final touch. Next up, the kitchen.
