Another Room

Firstly a big thank you to susan's country dreams who nominated me for this award.  It's my first one, so even more special! I have been given extra hours at work, so I don't get to write as many blogs as I would like to. But it is nice to know that people are enjoying reading them as much as I enjoy writing them!!

Now it is about time I showed you another room.  I don't have any before pictures as it was a fairly instant makeover as soon as we moved in.  So I will paint a picture for you...........

The bathroom - pink carpet, orange stained wood everywhere (including bath panel, toilet seat, back of door and wall cupboards), white painted wallpaper at the top with an old fashioned looking ugly flowery border, frilly curtains............

So, I pulled off the border, painted the wallpaper a beige colour to match in with the tiles - which I didnt mind at all (They are actually pink and beige with pretty flowers - not peach as they look in the photo).
I painted all the stained wood white, got rid of their horrible cupboards, pulled up the carpet and put down a get the picture!? So here are the "after" pictures

This photo has just reminded me though, that I still haven't got round to changing the wooden toilet flush! but this will show the "nice" orange pine colour.

The window display

Handy, and more attractive, storage shelves

This is where the spare toilet rolls live.

So that's my bathroom!

I need some ideas from you for a problem I have with my hallway decorating - but I will come back for those tomorrow!



  1. Congratulations on your blog award :) Personally I don't understand having carpet in a bathroom & yours is looking great now after it's makeover x
