We picked a fabric and started to recover the chairs for the dining room at The Roseboro. The window coverings will be made from the same fabric and trimmed with gold fringe. We decided to paint the columns a burgundy color and the walls cream color. The trim around will all be in gold leaf. It should look very rich.
A crew was busy today moving holiday decorations from the Village maintenance barn to The Roseboro for the Victorian Holiday Celebration. Brent Ridge, Josh Kilmer-Purcell, Doug Plummer, David Cousineau, Ron Ketelsen, Mike McCallion, and Lester Higgins loaded a 16′ trailer in the pouring rain and moved them to The Roseboro. Josh and Brent got the decorations from a company in Boston who was getting rid of them and donated them to Sharon Springs. Our goal is now to have one of the best decorated Villages around.
Between now and December, volunteers will be needed to go through and sort the many rooms of holiday decorations. Help is also needed to decorate the Village and prepare for the Festival of Trees for the Victorian Holiday Celebration. If you are interested, please contact the Sharon Springs Chamber at email@example.com or call 518-860-5513.
It was a busy day today at The Roseboro. The 12 foot walls went up in the bathrooms off the lobby, thanks to Roy Hall, Jr. We have yet to cut the entire opening for the doors, but it is starting to look better already. New floors, toilets, sinks and plumbing still need to be put installed. We are trying to get the new restrooms done before the Victorian Holiday Celebration in December.
Paint colors were chosen for the dining room and we started to paint the walls cream color, the columns burgundy, the woodwork white – all trimmed in gold leaf. I have also started to reupholster the dining chairs with burgundy and gold fabric. We will use the same fabric for the drapes. It will look very rich!
Some great news!!! We received our final Certificate of Occupancy today for the lobby and restaurant area of the hotel. We are doing things in phases. I have opened the Roseboro Emporium Antique Store in the lobby for now. It has been open for a few weeks and doing very well. It is open on weekends. If you are looking for fine quality antiques, stop in and see our collection!
