The black pen­dant is ac­tu­ally a can­dle­holder turned up­side down and the Ore­gon pine stor­age cup­board ( bot­tom left) was once the cou­ple’s TV cab­i­net; Kelly painted the pan­els with a blend of left­over acrylic paints. The cou­ple saved a for­tune by keep­ing the orig­i­nal kitchen cup­boards. Johnathan made the coun­ter­tops us­ing tim­ber from an old stair­case.

“Up­date kitchen cup­boards with bath­room paint – it pro­vides a matte fin­ish, dries quickly and it’s wa­ter­proof, mak­ing the cup­boards easy to clean,” Kelly ad­vises.

Kelly loves the old-world feel of the roll-top acrylic bath in the en-suite bath­room; it was an out­side room be­fore the cou­ple sealed the ex­ter­nal door. This space was split in two to al­low for a walk-in closet ( door on the left). Re­claimed doors with glass panes let in plenty of light.
