I love walking past homes with scaffolding outside on my regular routes, and watching the work evolve infront of my eyes. So it was great to see this South West London facelift sent through by Emmy Lou.
A traditional Edwardian London terraced house started off with a slightly tired front door and a coat of cream paint obscuring original brickwork underneath.
Above, you can see the paint being stripped, revealing the beautiful red brickwork underneath.
The final result is a clean looking, up to date London house to be proud of! I love the beautiful grey front door and the stripping of the brickwork highlights all of the original features of the house. What a difference!
