Over the quiet winter months we set out to redecorate and 'upgrade' a couple of rooms here at SCH. We like to do this kind of work ourselves, it's very creative and satisfying. So we got to work - Jill made all the soft furnishings, curtains and tie-backs, bed-ends etc, whilst Jeff did all the decorating.
Pretty soon we realised that the 'new' rooms now eclipsed the 'old' rooms - and it was pretty obvious that the idea of a rolling programme of upgrades wasn't what we fancied after all. So one night, after a glass of wine or two, we somehow decided to upgrade ALL the rooms, before the season got underway. It seemed like a good idea at the time - after all, said we, the paint kit is at hand, and the sewing station is set up and operational (we had to construct a table large enough to handle all that curtain material!) "Yeah, let's do it!"
So began a long period of early mornings and late nights, trying to achieve this ridiculous goal we'd set ourselves! But, we got there, and just in time. The lovely comments we've had from guests this season (especially returning guests, who know the rooms well) have been so encouraging and appreciative. We love to hear that 'wow!' as we show them in! It really was worth all the effort.
