*The walls have been carefully hand stripped down and restored to its original plaster from the 1890's. Over the years the walls took on different pigments and some of those color pigments still remain giving off a rustic charm to the home. A final clear coat of paint finishes the walls and preserves it's historic beauty. This technique has been featured in numerous blogs like www.designsponge.com.
