Sonja's Drawing Room
Jan 25, 2010
This Better After comes to us from overseas! Sonja live in Ireland, in a home that is 200 years old! How cool. I can't imagine all the history and memories that have taken place there.
One memory Sonja would like to forget was painting her drawing room walls burgundy. So she and her husband did a little make-under and stripped the walls back to their original state with a sugar soap wash. (Don't have a clue what that means ... must be an Ireland thing?)
With the now neutral background, all of the character of this room was able to stand out on its own: the tall ceilings, two beautiful windows looking into a park, and original wood floors refinished to a deep brown.
Check out her blog Craft-Werk to see more of this room, and the light fixture she made out of paper! Thanks Sonja!
