As you can see the hideous wallpaper was put on with real care and attention!
The stone fireplace was painted white and the cast iron insert had been painted with black gloss paint I think.
And under the radiator there was evidence of wallpaper from a long time ago!
There is the remnants of a pull switch to control the big light which I am definitely going to restore to its former glory, there’s one in the spare room that we’ve been sleeping in since we moved in and it’s really useful and a bit retro i think!
So we’ve done most of the work in this room now and I’ll be taking a few pics this week to post soon and once the floor, walls and fireplace are all sorted then the real fun can begin, making it beautiful with fabrics and furniture! I’ve been scowering the internet for months now looking for inspiration for this room and collecting it all on my beloved Pinterest board – Night Night Sleep Tight – http://pinterest.com/mrsnsw/night-night-sleep-tight/ . Here’s a few of my favourite pics
Looking forward to the completion of the blank canvas, not long to go now!
