So, the formal parlor is about 85% complete at this point. Still to go are the stairs (since installed but the spindles, etc need finishing) and the paintings for above the mantel. Overall, I'm quite pleased with how it's come out! The wainscoting in particular was a real pain and took forever--all of those identical panels were not fun. The color scheme is based off of one I saw, and adored, in a nearby historic house.
Luckily, the blood, sweat and tears that went into this room aren't evident in the finished product!

And that, as they say, is that. I have a bit more work to do on the bathroom, as well as on the third floor (actually quite a bit more work on the third floor!), then I have to cope with the roof. And then it's back to the outside, for landscaping.
