Sooner rather than later actually.
Our bathroom is awful. I’ll try to find and share pics of it when I do the great reveal before and afters, but for now just trust me when I say its awful. Not that I haven’t seen worse, but…
Anyway, to add insult to injury, the hideous laminated fake tile sheeting we have in the shower recess (all over the bathroom in fact) has cracked and water is now getting into the wall.
Well, really wonderful in fact, cause it means we get to renovate the bathroom!
Ok, so I’ve got some ideas.
I want subway tiles with dark grout, concrete floor tiles, white storage cupboard and a DIY vanity.
Sounds nice. Simple. Tasteful. Clean and tidy.
So… I have a cabinet I’m planning to make into my vanity using this sink from Ikea:
My inspiration are these images I’ve had on my Pinterest ‘bathroom’ board ever since I began pinning things. I figure I can get something similar to this using an old cabinet and the Ikea sink top:
Cool isn’t it? I know not everyone is into shabby, rustic or plain old, but I love it.
This one I pinned for the colour. For some reason it spoke to me though I’ve never considered yellow before.
This colour is way more me, but I’m thinking darker, more aqua or turquoise will be the way to go.
More like this!
Anyway… wall tiles. I’m thinking subway tiles, right? I mean you can’t go wrong with subway tiles!!! And dark grout!
Then I saw these pics on Pinterest and it got me thinking… We’re obviously going to be redoing the bathroom on a tight budget. And plain square white tiles are cheaper than fancy types. Right? So, I’ll go get quotes on both, but this is an option. I don’t mind the look at all.
Of course, my window surround is timber and white, not black, but there’s no reason I can’t paint the aluminium window black. It’ll probably look way better than the ‘primrose’ it is currently. Ugh.
Still, how cute is that?
This week I’m off getting quotes and ordering the bits and pieces we need to create our new bathroom. And tomorrow I’m starting work on my new vanity and shopping my shed for what I can make my storage cabinet out of…
Another big adventure begins. Stay tuned.
