Floorcloth for Stagville Plantation

Entry hall of Bennehan house

Looking into the dining room.

Attaching tape to edges

I have just completed a large floorcloth for the Bennehan House entry hall at the Historic Stagville Plantation in Durham, NC. It is 9 feet wide by 11 1/2 feet long. It's a colonial design with white and dark gray marbelized squares and accents in an historic gold color.
The first photo is of the entry hall.

The next photo is a view of the floorcloth looking into the dining room. The color in the floorcloth coordinates with the dining room walls.

The last photo shows me with my assistant , Ducka Kelly, attaching non-skid rug tape to the edges.

If you live near Durham, be sure to make a trip to this lovely historic site.
