Old homes are so much fun! What I thought was going to be a quick make-over for my son's new bedroom has turned into a major job. We discovered some old water damage which we fixed up, then painted undercoat to smooth out the walls. The next day we found a huge bubble covering half the wall...needless to say this is now what the wall looks like (after a few hours of hand scrapping...thus the mess on the floor!). Back to bare plaster, and of course it isn't the normal gyprock but the old fashioned horse-hair plaster so can't be sanded to much. Will be back (hopefully) with some pretty pictures of this room soon.
Onto much nicer things...my lounge is missing something. I keep changing it around but just doesn't seem to feel right. I am going to get rid of the wing back chair and replace with chairs similar to the ones below. I am also on the look out for a lovely Aubusson rug. Some curtains would also be good. Does anyone have any suggestions for this room? It isn't used every day but is the first room you see when you come in the front door.
