Welcome to the 219th Metamorphosis Monday!
A while back I shared a wonderful Mardi Gras table setting in the dining room of Sandi’s beautiful historic home. You’ll find that tablescape here: Mardi Gras Table Setting and Decoration.)
Sandi’s home was built in 1833 and she’s been restoring it since 1991. For this Met Monday, I’m sharing some of the ways she transformed her historic Home.
Imagine having an entry space this large!
Sandi has a beautiful antique Victorian bed in her master bedroom. Notice the wood beadboard ceilings! When Sandi bought her home, the ceilings in this bedroom were the only ceilings in her home that had not already been painted white.
Wouldn’t it be nice if homes today had fireplaces in all the bedrooms. The small Victorian chair in the pic below belonged to Sandi’s grandmother and she created the needlepoint seat. What a lovely treasure to pass down through the family. The hurricane globes were Sandi’s Mother’s and she found them in antique store with Sandi was just a child. The peacock picture over the mantel was a birthday gift for friend…Sandi loves peacocks and has thought about adding some to her farm.
Sandi has a sitting area tucked into a corner near the fireplace.
The vessel sink in Sandi’s master bath is perfect for this space.
Lots of storage for linens and other necessities.
It would be wonderful to soak in the claw-foot tub gazing up at this beautiful chandelier.
I’ll be sharing other rooms in this historic beauty real soon.
Looking forward to the Before and Afters linked for this Met Monday!
