Detroit 1907 Queen-Anne: Dining-Room Makeover
Bill Swanson, the son of an antique dealer, has a fine appreciation for old things. So when he and his girlfriend Vittoria saw a neglected old foursquare two doors down from her restored house, he jumped at the chance to buy it. However, what he bought was nothing short of a wreck. Years of neglect has left this two-story turn-of-the-century wood foursquare in extremely poor condition. In this episode, DIY's Restoration Realities helps with the initial phase of this exciting makeover -- the restoration of the dining room. We show Bill and his team of helpers how to strip the wallpaper and patch the plaster. Once that's done, a new coat of primer and paint is added. We also clean the hardwood floor and apply an oil finish.
