I never thought I’d get to the end of the lounge border stenciling but at last, here we are and the room is starting to take on that home-crafted look that I was aiming for. I was so worried that it would look a bit naff and it certainly isn’t perfect in places but I really love it. There is a lot more to complete in this room but I can see my ideas really coming together now. I can’t wait for the paneling and the window seat to progress further.
Until we have the space to move out of this side of the house and create the barn guest suite we have a chance to get to know this old farmhouse and feel all it’s lovely lumps and bumps. I don’t know if we’ll rip off all the concrete and restore the lime plaster walls to their former glory. For now, it’s our lovely home.
