This week we took Step One of our bathroom renovation (yippee!) when we ripped out the window and installed a glass block window.
The surrounds of the window will be finished when we do the tiling.
The window has greatly improved the amount of light coming in to the room (sorry, this picture does not really illustrate that as it was taken very early in the morning!)
There are many steps to go and it is going to get uglier before it gets better.
- The purple bath needs to be made white.
- The purple and green tiles are coming off to be replaced by white.
- The brown floor tiles will be replaced by grey.
- There will be a new vanity with a grey marble top.
- There will be a new shower cubicle with a sliding glass door.
I am glad we have finally started.
Rather than offend your eyes with any more ugly bathroom pictures, I thought I would end with a pic of the new kitchen cupboard my DH has just painted. We bought it from the local Op Shop. It was an ugly baltic pine stain, and so we painted it white to match the kitchen.
There are glass doors for the top and solid wooden doors for the bottom, which DH hasn't had a moment to paint yet.
I am very pleased with the amount of storage it is offering, and how the new cupboard has inspired me to get on to de-cluttering some of the other cupboards and generally making the kitchen work better.
I will post another pic when we have the doors on.
