Part VIII: Before and After
The chairs were dropped off today (pretty quick turn around; six days). So, the room it about finished. I figured I'd post some before and afters. There's some painting left to do on the new columns in the pass through and the mantel, and I need to rearrange, etc. the stuff on my shelves, but it's close enough for you guys. Plus, you must have been anxious without all of the posting over the last week and a half. (Sorry about the pictures. My new camera is acting up and will have to be taken back. It is autofocusing wrong and things are blurry. The chairs do not look beige from a distance, you can tell they're plaid, but in some of these pictures they look solid.) I think the upholsterer did a hell of a job for $300 each. Enjoy.
With the table set for four (leaves extend to accommodate 8 (two tapered legs swing down that are tucked beneath the table top):
