Our "Painted Lady" gets a makeover! - Part 1


The past few months, we've been hard at work renovating our 137-year-old Victorian mansion. It started with a project to update the ductwork. Dampers were installed and ducts added to the Lafayette and Napoleon bathrooms. The dampers control the temperature for each individual room, providing each guest with their preferred temperature during their stay. Hooray for zoned heating! 

In order to upgrade the ductwork, the ceilings of our second floor had to be ripped apart. The Burgundy and Lafayette rooms were under siege from drywall dust and construction debris! Once the HVAC work was complete, new drywall was installed and the painting began. Stacy painted the 12-foot ceilings of the Burgundy and Lafayette rooms, the Burgundy and Lafayette baths, the closets in the Lafayette and Napoleon rooms (new ductwork was run through the closets), and the hallway starting on the 3rd floor and stretching to the 1st floor. All of that painting took 2 weeks to complete. 

The final phase of our renovation: new carpet throughout the main house. The results are stunning! We look forward to sharing our (even more) gorgeous "Painted Lady" with our guests!

There were so many "Before" and "After" photos that we decided to break up this post into multiple pages. Part 1 contains the photos of the Burgundy, Lafayette, and Napoleon baths. A fresh coat of paint makes such a difference!

After: New paint in the burgundy bath matches the decorative tile
Before: bright yellow Burgundy bath



Before: mint green Lafayette Bath
After: modern, soothing neutral tone



Before: another mint green bath in the Napoleon!
After: tranquil blue Napoleon bath
