Hallelujah! The first bedroom, needed NOTHING doing to it barring a lick of paint and work on the sash windows. The light in this room is wonderful. I actually, in hind sight, regret not keeping the wooden floors in this room. I probably fought for it at the time, and there was very probably a valid reason, which I have clearly decided to forget about.
Above: The room in its original state.
Above: White paint makes everything look wonderful. Clean and crisp.
