If you've been following the many installments of the Pompeii Room's evolution, you might remember that I painted the window frame at the very beginning.

You've undoubtedly noticed that in all my images of the Pompeii Room's window, I've masked the actual window with gray. That's because I've been bothered all along by a venetian blind, which quickly destroys the illusion I've been working hard to create.

I also looked into the possibility of using industrial grilles.
And then last week, while my house was being tented, I discovered this antique screen, originally hinged as a room divider. If you look closely, you might be able to see that by removing an X'd unit from the bottom of each panel, the fit will be almost perfect. I'm thrilled.
I hope you'll join me for the next installment!
