Happening Now: Painting a 1890 Victorian in Hapeville - the Madden House
Al emailed me July 7:
"Tim and I are (about to paint) our old Victorian......we need...professional advise as to the color selection and which architectural pieces should be painted which color...
"I am an Aries, strong and dominate opinionated, Tim, my partner, is certified interior designer, who happens to be Virgo, so pairing these, I think a mediator could salvage what could be a heated discussion..."
I asked Jessica McCarron who is in the Historic Preservation masters program at Georgia state. "With your permission, I can forward to Richard Laub and Maryellen Higginbotham at GSU. Richard you may know, he's the director of the HP program. I'm in Maryellen's Historic Interiors class now; she would probably have some suggestions since her area of study is paint and wallpaper."
I dropped by on Saturday and discovered work had begun. I think they are up to 800 hours of repairing, scraping, replacing, and priming.
