The story of the foyer.
This is the room I saw when I entered this house for the first time. Paneling in a faux stone pattern covered the walls. It was hideous and one of the first things to go. I thought nothing could look worse, but I was wrong. Under the paneling I found red flocked wallpaper! (I have removed a lot of wallpaper since that day and never have I come across anything harder to remove than that paper.) It came off in the tinest of pieces over a very long period of time. Once some layers were removed it was apparent that a fireplace had been a part of this room.
