๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š After weeks of deliberation we finally committed to a colour! It should dry a little darker as this was just after we painted the first coat but we are in love!!

We love our Bosch Laser level! It has saved us so much time when marking out where the picture rails should go. #boschtools #edwardianhouse #edwardianhome #edwardianhomerenovation #homerenovation #diyhomeimprovement #diyhome
Throwback Thursday to when we had to have the front path and garden dug up by the electricity board as we had such an old electric meter in the house & pipes outside ๐Ÿ˜ฉ Our poor front garden took over a year to recover but necessary work when youโ€™re renovating ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ #tbt #throwback #throwbackthursday #mrsgoldingest2017 #1902renovationadventure #blogger #homeblogger #myhousethismonth #diy #homerenovation #periodproperty #periodproblems #firsttimebuyers #propertydevelopment #housetohome #house #home #terracehouse #oldhouse #homeimprovement #edwardianhomerenovation #renovationlife #electricmeter #garden

A weekend well spent ๐Ÿ˜Š Picked out paint colours, painted the bedroom sanded some skirting boards and attempted to restore this fireplace surround to its former glory (before the 100 layers of paint!). This picture was after a few hours of scrubbing. It's not quite there yet but WATCH THIS SPACE ๐Ÿค— #weekenddiy #weekendwellspent #fireplacerestorations #edwardianhome #edwardianhouse #edwardianhomerenovation #hoursetohome #firsthome #firsthomerenovation #diy #diymad #diyhome

As lots of you know already, I painted this wall yellow on Thursday.... I had the most lovely dms ever about it! It is โ€˜Mister Davidโ€™ from @littlegreenepaintcompany. To be honest it is taking a bit of getting used to but it certainly cheers this space up! Hope you all have nice plans for today, I am hoping to meet my shiny new nephew and might even wear my wooshy new Morris x hm dress you can see hanging here!

New cornice is up! What a messy job that was... we need to clean (and paint) again ๐Ÿ™ˆ #rookiemistakes #everydaysaschoolday swipe โฌ…๏ธ to see the progress (1) original cornice with artex (2) renovated ceiling and walls, painted white & (3) re-produced plaster cornice from original template #masterbedroom #bedroommakeover #edwardianhouse #edwardianhouserenovation #edwardianhome #edwardianhomerenovation
So, as I said, bedroom not a quick transformation. So weโ€™re #campingout again, this time in the living room. #glamorous ๐Ÿ˜‚ New cornice going up tomorrow in the bedroom, which I am quite excited about. Will post pics when itโ€™s finished. Hope Monday hasnโ€™t been to bad for everyone ๐Ÿ˜˜ #masterbedroom #bedroommakeover #edwardianhouse #edwardianhome #edwardianhomerenovation #edwardianhouserenovation
The artex is gone! And so is the cornice ๐Ÿ˜ฑ luckily we found a company to re-produce the orginal and it will be going up next week, good as new ๐Ÿ˜ Meanwhile, we continue to squat in another room... ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜† #hurryupalready #notsureihavethepatienceforrenovation #edwardianhome #edwardianhouse #edwardianhouserenovation #edwardianhomerenovation #masterbedroom #bedroommakeover
Iโ€™m attempting to clean up the fireplace today. This is what sold the house to me when we first viewed it ๐Ÿ˜ #fireplace #edwardianhome #edwardianhomerenovation #home #homedecor
And so it begins... actual work! Not on the big renovation, but on the master bedroom. Itโ€™s going to take a while, due to availability of tradespeople, but am so excited to get started ๐Ÿ˜ #watchthisspace #edwardianhomerenovation #edwardianhome #edwardianhouse #edwardianhouserenovation #bedroommakeover #masterbedroom
Hello instarenovators! Been MIA for a week or more. Sorry. This home improvement malarkey can be a bit slow at times! We have our initial design concept, we think (๐Ÿ˜‚) So, when we finalise them, then Iโ€™ll share. First, though, we need the remaining โ€˜ballparkโ€™ build cost figures to come in... the first one was ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€ quite a jump from the budget we gave the architect. Has anyone else encountered that? Rookie mistake, I think. Are build budget and contents (kitchen, floor, windows/doors) budget considered separate things? Anyhoo, as a comforter Iโ€™ve decided to try out the crockpot so, hereโ€™s a pic of our #winterwarmer for you. Itโ€™s keeping the autumn chills at bay too! Hope you are enjoying your weekend ๐Ÿ˜Š #edwardianhomerenovation #edwardianhouserenovation #edwardianhouse #edwardianhome #anotherrookiemistake #hurryupwiththequotesalready

Ok, so, looking for your input... Weโ€™re going for white in the master bedroom, with accents of emerald, gold and black. Not quite Art Deco (wrong era for the house) but inspired by.

How cute is this little basket that we brought back from our travels for our daughters room? ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒˆ#edwardianhomerenovation #edwardianhouserenovation #edwardianhouse #edwardianhome #traveltreasures #rainbowcolours
Today the rewiring begins!
Ignore the undecorated plastered walls- here is one our Christmas presents that we can finally get out of the garage! Love this lamp and I finally found a table slim enough for the area and tall enough for the lamp! #tablelamp #lamptable #solidwood #1900shouse #edwardianstyle #edwardian #edwardianhomerenovation
A full bookcase is a joy forever ๐Ÿ“šโค Lugging this lot up and downstairs was the hardest workout I've done yet ๐Ÿ’ช #bookcasestyling #bookshelfdecor #bookshelf #books #bookstagram #homedecor #houserenovation #edwardianhomerenovation #edwardianhouse
Weโ€™re back! Refreshed and ready to start work upgrading our new home. And I brought back a little trinket from our travels for the house! ๐Ÿ’€ Can you guess where weโ€™ve been? #newfave #edwardianhomerenovation #edwardianhome #homesweethome

Nearly.....just a few edges to finish off tomorrow when the gloss has dried.

First coat of varnish on the floorboards this morning.... really pleased with how they've come out ๐Ÿ˜ Couple more coats to go, colour to put on the walls, woodwork glossing, then ready for the first settee coming next week!

Credit where it's due, @bazzatronwhite has done a reyt job of sanding the floorboards today. After and before pics here. Nearly time to decorate! Just in time for autumn ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽƒ #homedecor #houserenovation #strippedfloorboards #strippedfloors #edwardianhomerenovation

Today is a good day! We have now got lights in the bathroom ๐Ÿ’ก #spotlights #ledspotlights #ledlights #bathroomlights itโ€™s all coming together nicely now ๐Ÿก #edwardianhomerenovation #1900shouse
Trying to bring a little sunshine into a dark corner in the hall. This corner wonโ€™t exist once we remodel downstairs but for now... #interimdesignchoices #edwardianhome #edwardianhouse #edwardianhomerenovation #edwardianhouserenovation #soleil
I do like a splash of colour! This rug is bringing some life to all the beige in the living room, once we have some white paint on the walls itโ€™ll be nice and bright... until we can decide on how to renovate it! #edwardianhome #edwardianhouse #edwardianhomerenovation #edwardianhouserenovation #chevron #splashofcolour #interimdesignchoices

Fed up of boxes already ๐Ÿ˜‚ so going with a #flowerfriday pic today.

Day 4 - indoor refrigeration! โ„๏ธ Our American fridge/freezer wouldnโ€™t fit through the doors, so we had to plug it in, in the garage... but of a pain when you want a cuppa ๐Ÿ˜‚ So we got another (temporary) one and itโ€™s here!

Another day and another ceiling plastered! This time itโ€™s the hallway and landing we are tackling!

Day Two - Interim paint job. A quick brighten up while we decide on a final colour scheme/design in a few months. And also, we need to source some doors! #edwardianhouse #edwardianhome #edwardianhouserenovation #edwardianhomerenovation #bedroomdecor #wallpainting
~f a v o u r i t e~s h o p~ Thereโ€™s a beautiful shop just 20 minutes from us that sells stunning pieces of Furniture from all over Asia. Their buyers are sent out for half a year and then they come back with all these goodies! We frequently visit as they have a lovely cafe there too. Itโ€™s nice to browse and dream. The price tags on most are eye watering! Our sofa was from here many moons ago! #tradingboundaries #sussexshops #favouriteshops #asianbeauties #love #edwardianhomerenovation #lunchdate #wherethelordingslive
