Laundry progress

The laundry is almost there. See the original plans here.
I also picked up a new bed for our cat from Ikea. She likes to sleep here up high and look out the window to the left of this photo.

How I wish I could replace the apricot toilet. Never mind. The side table was a market find a while back that I painted white. I also painted the blue horizontal stripes on the wall.


The sink skirt also posted here.

Baskets picked up from Ikea and I printed the labels. I'm not usually this organised!

Cabinet knobs replaced with these crystal ones.

Below is the before shot to compare to. The changes are small but we have added additional storage and the bathroom doesn't make me cringe as it did before.

Still to do:

- Install a hanging light fitting in the bathroom
- Decide whether or not to paint the laundry walls or leave as is
- Hang a blind in the bathroom
- Maybe paint floor tiles white (I know I shouldn't as it won't last long but I have the tile paint and it is tempting me)

See the original plans here. I have a little decorating extra in this room which I'll share with you tomorrow.

  3. I dont think I can bring myself to say that i LIKE the colour of the toilet (it would be wrong wouldnt it?) but I reeeeeally like it in that room. It looks intended and not avoided..and that...is the sign of a great makeover :) Maybe it is just the photos and your reality feels different but I dont mind the toilet at all..and the tiles have a nice earthy look with the baskets. LOVE those stripes..the perfect choice :)

  7. Wow. I need you to come to my house and give me ideas. I have no idea what to do, especially after I see how amazing your place is.

    I think it would be even more beautiful with white tiles. I would be tempted to paint the white too! :)

  8. I'd say: paint the tiles!!! Go for it. I don't know if the paint is easy to remove, but... I dream of this room with white flooring.

  9. Wow, it looks great! I think you should keep the tiles as is. It gives a nice flow from the laundry room and the bathroom. Also agree with Lanne, the color of the toilet looks intended. Great job!

  12. This is the strangest thing! I have the side table in your bathroom and just today I was thinking about how I should paint it! Hmm now I know what it will look like - thanks!

  13. Thanks muchly! Good to see a few votes for painting the floor tiles. I guess the reason I'm hesitant is because it will probably chip off over time. I'm really really tempted though.

    miss mellie - I'll see what I can do about making a template out of the labels.

    lealou - no worries!
