One room at a time

The castle is a work in progress, unpacking that is.

I have one room completely unpacked and give or take a few minor things, almost how I want it.

Crystal, comports, pearls and sparkles on my Great Grandmothers dressing table.

The dressing table has been passed through four generations of my family, my mum wants to strip it back to its original wood but I like the chippy layers of generation paint!

The fur coat belonged to my great, great Aunty Maggie, she bought it to celebrate the passing of her husband. Yes I did say celebrate!!!

The fireplace is what I look at from my bed, shame it's blocked up, imagine lying in bed with a fire roaring!

This photo was taken standing in my living room. I have huge double doors to close the bedroom off but really love how the two rooms flow into each other.

That's all for now.

Take care

It's looking fantastic!! You have just the right things to put in it too. It's clearly made for you two. Yes it's a shame about the fireplace. Why anyone would board them up is beyond me. Enjoy the rest of the unpacking. It always takes so long.

What a lovely room. You've given it such a special touch. Can't wait to see pics of the rest of the rooms when you're done. This belongs in a decorating magazine. :-)
