The Tots100 Home Makeover Competition: An Update
Last week I blogged my entry to the Tots100 Home Makeover competition. You can see my original post here.
Well now that we are actually living in the house and I am forced to use the bathroom every day I thought I'd write a little bit of an update about it and my plans to improve it.
It's pretty hideous. I don't mean to sound like a diva but it's not the sort of place you want to spend lots of time (and I am a big time bubble bath LOVER and WALLOWER). I have bleached the whole room from ceiling to floor four times so I know its spotless but it still feels grubby and horrible. I've added a few 'homely' touches - plants, Daisy's bath toys etc - but it definitely doesn't feel like home.
This bad boy needs a makeover URGENTLY. And I have been daydreaming about it pretty much constantly since we moved in. My scrap book has become devoted to bathrooms and I have been scouring the internet for the bits and pieces I am after to make it perfect.
If we can't afford an entirely new bathroom suite then we definitely need a new sink, new taps, A NEW TOILET SEAT! An over the bath shower would be nice (I am STRUGGLING to wash my hair in the bath BIG TIME), plus new wall and floor tiles go without saying. Our boiler is also huge and has hundreds of pipes escaping out of it which are ugly (and keep attracting spiders, yuck) so I would like to box those in if poss.
Here are a few extracts from my scrap book to give you an idea of what I'm visualising, pretties-wise....
Mismatched girlie tiles, a pretty cotton shower curtain, lots of plants, a chequered floor. Ornate mirrors and clever (and beautiful!) storage. I thought the space was tiny and unworkable before we moved in but in actual fact its pretty cosy and definitely does the job.
GOD I hope I win!!!!
Anyone else entering? What room in your house would you like to makeover? xoxox
