My lovely old old house part III

Thank you for all your lovely comments about my old kitchen and old house. I promised to take you upstairs so here we go...
The main bedroom hadn't been used for years. The house had been rented and the owner stored her stuff in here. We didn't really see it or how huge it was until we got the keys to the house. Much stripping of floorboards, doors and wallpaper followed. We uncovered a pretty Georgian hob fireplace that had been boarded up and some nice pigeon skeletons!
Anyway here it is looking lighter and brighter.
The same treatment followed in the rest of the rooms. T
his was to be my first born's bedroom!!
 With Cooking Apple Green walls and curtains made from eiderdown covers, it became my favourite bedroom.
The first landing and a peak into the other rooms.
 You will see my love of old beds started quite some time ago.
So there you go, my tardis cottage!

  13. love it, this reminds me of our house when we bought it, the wallpaper, and old fire places, we peeled layers and layers of both off to get to the beautiful original bits underneath!
