Sharon Brooker’s DIY skills and eye for a bar­gain re­sulted in a wel­com­ing home

About Me I’m Sharon Brooker, 37, and I live with my part­ner Co­bie Fos­kett, 39, and our chil­dren Kian, 16, Sum­mer, 11, and Pixie, 6.

My home A four-bed ex­tended miner’s cot­tage near Pen­zance, Corn­wall, bought in Oc­to­ber 2008.

When I bought It The house was damp, smelly and al­most derelict. The win­dows were rot­ten, the kitchen and bath­room were barely us­able and the rooms were dec­o­rated with hor­ri­ble wall­pa­pers and harsh colours.

And now We’ve com­pletely ren­o­vated the place and added a liv­ing room and mas­ter bed­room. I’ve filled the house with re­lax­ing pas­tel shades and an ever-chang­ing, coun­try-in­spired look us­ing upcycled fur­ni­ture and lots of pretty fabrics.
