I didn't get a real before picture. I only got one after we had started the removal. I will also find some time soon to post pictures of Jackson's room (which is only in need of period trim replacement), the utility/sewing room renovation (crown mold and paint are left to complete this) and a post of the insane amounts of decoupage, gross wallpaper, cork tile and paneling just for a laugh.
For the moment here is a before and during photo of one wall of the dining room. This room will be painted 2 tone. The top will be a spicy brown mustard color and below chair rail height will be a red/brown (almost mahogany or dark cherry wood) color wash.
