Sourcebook: My Bathroom

houzz-tour-lifebylotte2

The baby is still enjoying a delightful period of night-time wakefulness (basically, wakes at 2am screaming for no apparent reason – beginning to suspect teething; and then 5.30am whereupon she decides it’s time to start the day), so I’m a little sleep deprived at the moment. Hence this rather uninspiring post – the last one detailing all the bits and bobs in my home. I’ve already done a blog post specifically about my bathroom makeover, but here’s a list of all the products you can see in the pictures in case you like any of them!

I’ve decided not to do a similar post on my kitchen as to be honest very little of it is of my choosing – the cabinets are Ikea and fine but not what I would have picked, the worktop is also Ikea and is a white laminate, the flooring is godawful and I have no idea where it’s from, the walls are painted in French Gray from Farrow & Ball. If you want to know any more about it then do drop me a line/leave me a comment.

But enough of that, on to the bathroom – done on a massively tight budget, I think it cost me about £2k in materials and then another £1.5k in labour.

Bathroom reveal

So…it’s been a while since I finished my bathroom, but I was waiting for some LIGHT and SUNSHINE in order to photograph it. But look, we had five minutes of the stuff on Tuesday and now it’s buggered off again. So I’ve given up. Here’s the bathroom, in the delightfully dull March light we’re all now so depressingly used to. Am hoping that by posting this, the sun will decide to appear and stick around, just to spite me for not waiting a little bit longer.

You may remember my personality-less bathroom from my post before here…

Grim eh? But here it is now… *ta-daaaa*
