When we first moved into our house there was a lot to do. Over time we have worked on it to make it a home. I prefer older, more solid furniture then a lot of the furniture sold today, so for us obtaining second hand was the only way to achieve this within our budget.
In our dining room we ripped up the slate, pulled down the wallpaper and re-did the whole space. We then added to it over time until it was a room perfect for our ‘home’.
