So - I have lined up the workmen etc. and just basically waiting to reach my place on their list!! So frustrating! Although, Bel (a friends Dad, restores old furniture, paints etc.- lovely chap) is currently painting the windows inside and its already starting to look quite transformed! So while I await the other workmen (plumber, electrician etc) I'm still gathering old fabrics (for bunting and cushions) as well as lovely images from mags and flickr. etc to keep me going (oh such a hard life!!). This image is taken from this months 'Homes and Antiques' magazine and kinda sums up the look (hopefully). Will be back over the next couple of days with some more lovely images etc.
