The fall and rise of a bathroom - conclusion

It is done!

bathroom shower/bath

We've got our new towels on the towel rail, our shampoos etc back on the bath, and a brand new bottle of bath bubbles that I tested on Saturday after my run. Lovely. 

You'll no doubt have noticed that you can't see the door in that shot, whereas normally you can. That's because the door was in such a lousy state that Clarkie took it off, sanded it, and we're still in the process of painting it before rehanging it. Sadly this probably means we'll end up doing the rest of the doors upstairs, and probably the rest of the woodwork too - something we've been avoiding since we moved in. It'll look better in the long run. 

bathroom sink

The sink, complete with splashback tiles. We're desperately trying not to put all the crap back in that we used to keep on the windowledge. Clarkie has hidden our toothbrushes on this end of the windowledge, and we've bought a shiny new bin to match. 

bathroom toilet

We've now got a skewer thing to store our toilet rolls on, but unfortunately the nice new loo roll holder we bought was missing a screw, so it's not quite made it onto the wall yet. Oh, and you can also see the nice chrome light pulls we got. (I say we, but the purchasing was all done by Clarkie after she got a PB at parkrun on Saturday and I was going for my run. She has excellent taste in accessories.)

Again, having removed the stuff from the back there, we're really loath to put anything back. However, there are certain things that belong in a bathroom, so we'll need to find something to keep them in. Not sure what yet. 

So barring the door, this little adventure has reached a very satisfactory conclusion!

Huzzah for accessories! (Phew)

And yes, also planning on painting the ceiling on the landing, filling that crack by the loft hatch and generally making things shiny and clean...
