Win a £2,500 Home Makeover with Tots100 and

Tots100 have joined forces with this month and have launched a fabulous competition where a prize made up of £2,500 worth of tools, materials and expert tradesman advice is up for grabs.

To enter this competition, you merely need to tell Tots100 which room you'd like to makeover and how you would go about it!

You may or may not know (HA!) that Himself and I bought a derelict cottage this year. I know I've been banging on about it and whinging about how long the works have taken and how dreadful the move has been and I'M SORRY! (It's the hormones, honest!) 

Because it had been empty for so long it has been a mammoth job making it habitable again, requiring damp proofing, re-wiring and re-plumbing, as well as some structural work and then re-plastering and decorating! It's been a stressful few months I can tell you, but there is finally light at the end of the tunnel (thank GOD as I'm 35 weeks pregnant now!) and it looks as if we will be moving in this weekend *crosses fingers*

Every room has had a makeover except the bathroom which, being tucked away at the back of the house, we thought we could leave for the time being and save up some money to spend on it.

Ahhhh, our 'new' bathroom. It's a funny one! Very, VERY cramped and a strange L-shape, and kitted out in the finest enamel bathroom suite and tiles from the 1960s!

I would LOVE to give this room a makeover sooner rather than later. Not that I am impatient or anything.....! But it's old and tired and definitely not ideal as it is, and it looks so out of place next to the rest of the house.

It's pretty grubby at the mo (grubby in the old and dated sense, not dirty - I have bleached the room to within an inch of its life!) so I have been day dreaming about something brand new, and clean and simple. As much as I love my bubble baths, getting out of the bath unaided with a belly this big is proving rather tricky so an over-the-bath shower wouldn't go amiss.

I have visions of a traditional, vintage theme, with mis-matched tiles and wood panelling. Because the room is so small, I have been trying to come up with some fab space saving ideas, like towel rails around the sink with storage underneath, old fashioned medicine cabinets and more over the bath storage.

I just adore this image from Country Living magazine. Have a look at some more inspiring pictures on my Dream Home board on Pinterest!

So this is my entry to the competition! If you want more info on how to enter, check out the Tots100 website here.

Good luck to everyone xoxox renovation
