From Dreary to Dreamy...A Bedroom Transformation

So many of you have asked to see photos of our new home so I thought I would share these with you. Our house is full of feature and needed lots of work to bring out the best of those features.
Here is the master bedroom, once very different as you can see by the 'before' pictures, but now it is light and airy with its timbers stripped of black paint, the fresh, white walls and a soft painted floor. I have mixed in some of the before photos so you can see just what a challenge we had!

We have carried out more detective work and now understand the house to be almost 400 years old. Such wonderful history lies within it - but also a great deal of work! There's still plenty to do so between the house and the website, we are never short of something to do! We have some surprises planned for you regarding the Vintage Home Website and will be announcing these soon, in the meantime, we hope you enjoy the photos.


  1. You have so much room in there now! It will be fun to fill it up with goodies. It looks fantastic, what a lot of hard work!

  2. What a calm, peaceful room. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous home.


  3. It's so lovely to see more of your home snaps! It's a beautiful makeover and the sandblasted timber is looking beautiful!
