The next bedroom on the 3rd level which faces the road and has two small Juliet balconies was an easier task as it basically just needed a freshen up and a dressing. We kept this room more handsome than the others. The original wallpaper was saved on most walls. The wall with the exposed stone from a long time ago flood has been kept as is, to show the bones of the house, its raw beauty.
Once the fifty years of dust and dirt had been washed off the walls and floors and the skirtings and doors had a fresh coat of paint, it was time to purchase some furniture. We visited Toulouse and dropped off at the huge Ikea to purchase beds and mattresses for comfort. We bought antique bed surrounds for the overall look of the room from a local Antique shop and found an Armoire in a Brocante in Agen. When we got it the Armoire home and had a closer inspection it was riddled with tiny borer holes! Nic spent most of the day using borer killer and filling up each hole. Once polished and carried up the many stairs it sat well in the room. Im keeping my eyes peeled for any live borer dust!
