Our bathroom was ‘finished’ on Friday – you might remember the photo I posted last Monday, when things were looking pretty dramatic! We had the whole room gutted, re-plastered, and all new fittings, tiles and a new floor. It looks brilliant (twin 1, Danny, says it is ‘colossally good’) – but it’s not really finished because we still have to paint it, and choose all those little things that will make it absolutely complete. I ordered this really cute shower curtain at the weekend, but there’s still a lot to think about – I feel a trip to Ikea coming on – it’s definitely time to treat myself to a new loo brush!
The slight problem on the horizon is that we are totally spent up now… So, because I am desperate to have lots of colourful new stuff in my gorgeous new bathroom, I thought I’d use some of my bigger fabric scraps and an old towel to make a bath mat…
I am hoping that the colours are going to look good with the new shower curtain, and I certainly think it looks pretty against the LOVELY new laminate floor. I am wondering about making blinds too, and a cushion for the built-in seat that we have in there… Do you think a matching patchwork cushion would look good? Decisions, decisions… so tough when you want everything to look just right and you don’t have much time or money to spare.
