This is a heap of lath from the second floor walls. . fascinating to think of this being put this up over a century ago, piece by piece, the plaster spilling through each crack like an overstuffed PB&J sandwich..

This looks to be very old wallpaper appearing below layers of paint in a room on the second floor. .if these walls could talk. .

A sampling of the existing casing that will be repainted and left in place . . blinds are to be trashed, of course.  What we intend to do is maintain the scale of moldings and trim, but to open the flow of the apartments to a more modern feel.

One of several plaster ceiling medallions.  These are so overly painted that any detail is gone . . we may just replace them.  New recessed lighting is being installed . .
