After seven years of living with the grottiest bathroom on the planet, we've finally managed to update it - huzzah! Now I realise this blog isn't really about interior design, but I was so excited I had to share it.
Yes, it was bad. Oh so very bad. Nasty dark green tiles on every wall, wrinkled linoleum, a mouldy bath and cracked sink. Not to mention manky old exposed pipework sticking out of the wall over the bath taps. Yuk...
It's amazing what you can live with (seven years!!), but now we finally have a beautiful, fun, funky and actually rather peaceful bathroom of our very own.
Quick and Colourful Washi Tape Fix for Tatty Chair Legs
I lucked upon a lovely old bucket chair in my local vintage emporium recently, and have been in a quandary ever since as to what to do with it.
I was thinking of painting the original pink woven seat a funkier, brighter colour, but when I'd given it a good clean, it was in such good condition that it seemed a crime to cover up. The legs, however, were a rather tatty silver that was knocked and peeling in places. Recalling another recent project that I'd almost painted, I got out my washi tape instead.
