At last the bathroom is complete! Donald has worked really hard on the painting and decorating over the last couple of weeks. Fitting it all in to evenings and weekends has been a bit of a trial but so worth it now we see the finished result. I’ve helped where I can, mostly cleaning and providing meals, but at 34 weeks pregnant now what I can do to help is a bit limited.
Today began with a final snagging list – hang the blind, clean the tiles, apply silicone, finish the window sill and hang fittings like toilet roll holder and soap dish. I’m pleased to say it is all done and now properly clean too for the first time in weeks.
We love the wall colour and the mirror which we’ve had for years finally has a proper home.
For one small bathroom I’ve been taken aback by how much work it takes to update it. A week ago the joiners begun by putting up new plasterboard and creating some storage (yay, at last!) at the end of the bath and under the sink. This week Jerry has worked incredibly hard on the tiling, all the tiles are now up and grouted round the bath with Mum’s help. Thank you both so much! Today we’re getting the bath re-enamelled so it should look shiny and new again. Then we can begin preparing and decorating the walls. So here is the progress in pictures:
Monday and Tuesday
Wednesday and Thursday
P.S. Any colour help for the walls would be much appreciated, we’re thinking a light aqua green so the grey tiles don’t seem too dark but struggling to make a decision!
