The rigging project is almost done! Just yesterday the “grand valance” and drapes were hung. This photo was taken before the drapes were installed, but I just needed to share this picture. We chose a drape design as close to the originals as possible. Having only black and white photos put a damper on the color scheme, but we are extremely pleased with the dark blue fabric. If you’d like to see what the original drapes looked like, check out the Jones Photo Historical Collection site and search for photo number 23140. Bet you can’t wait to see these in real life.
