Library Restoration Update

September 18, 2014

In January 2014, we began the restoration of Belmont Mansion's Library. Restoration work began with several days of paint analysis on the ceiling which revealed the original paints colors and mural design. Decorative painters have been hard at work, recreating every last detail of Adelicia's elaborate ceiling design. 

 

In addition to reproducing the original ceiling mural, we are reproducing the origial faux graining on all door and window frames in the room. This meticulous work has taken over two weeks to compelte because each line, swirl and accent is done by hand. It is a true work of art, and we are delighted at how it will enhance the beauty of Adelicia's Library.
