These are the before and after photos of the projects that have been (and will be) going on in the 130+ year old Victorian House since I purchased the house. From Stenciling the walls to painting murals, and furniture. You can see the before and after photos, and keep up with the latest projects as they happen here at the site of dddavids Ghost Cams.
