Introducing The Garden Room

Kev and I have been busy beavering away creating a new bedroom and en suite bathroom in our converted loft space, with guests arriving today they were finally finished about two hours before they arrived.  

Here’s the bedroom, I’ll post pics of the bathroom later. 

The chains holding the bedside lamps over the tables came from our well.

The chest of drawers is actually going to live in the Library room downstairs but it fits in well in this room for now. It was a Great find at our local Brocante and only €20 then paired with chalk paint and old handles found at a Brocante market in Rabastens. 

The ladder is part of an old painting ladder set, a great bargain from Troc  81 a second hand warehouse in Albi.

The mirror was a  present from my lovely friend Lynda, I have to put labels on the holders.

The sunflowers are from our local feilds, we’ll there are thousands of them, I’m sure the farmer won’t miss a few???
