Well it was a race to get the San Fran finished, and me plagued with allergies to boot, but I finally got it in the mail. Some pics- first of the base, which I covered with the brick powder treatment that came with the kit. I had never tried this stuff before and was a bit trepidatious, but it turned out pretty well; alot hardier than I had thought it was going to be. You would pretty much have to take a chisel to it to get it off!
I decided not to install any more window treatments than the one in the green room because I had run out of time! (And also because they would interfere with my stained glass and opening windows...) And now some finished pics, which I had to take inside because this house was too big and heavy and unwieldy to trot in and out:
