Master Bedroom and Bath in Historic 1833 Home

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.

Historic Home

Imagine having an entry space this large!

Entry of Historic Home

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!

    I grew up in a house with a footed tub and I have always loved them. I love the bathroom. I especially like the poster bed in the bedroom and the fireplace. How wonderful to lie in bed, snuggled under blankets or quilts, while a fire burned in the fireplace. That just sounds too lush!!! I hope you and your family had a wonderful Easter. Give Mr. Max a kiss from me. I hope he is feeling better.

  25. This house is so lovely. They do not make hallways like that this anymore. Hope you had a great Easter.

  26. Thanks for hosting, Susan. I love that chandy in Sandi’s bath.

  27. Thank you for hosting! Have a happy week. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

    We put a plank ceiling like that in our sunroom and sealed it the natural color – no paint on it for us! This is such a beautiful home and I would love to have an entry that wide. Thank you for bringing it to us Susan.

    Thinking of you and praying for you and Max. After I read your post I looked in our backyard at our 6 tiny graves with headstones and remembered the furry babies we have had over the years. I hope you have Max for many more.
