The Reveal

I know you have all been waiting patiently for the bathroom update.  What could be more important right now?  In all seriousness, this bathroom being done is the most important thing for me right now.

It was actually finished two weeks ago but we had some shower leakage problems.  As they say, third time's a charm and we seem to have all the problems fixed (touch wood, fingers crossed, etc.). I now know more about plumbing and the logistics of building than I care to know. I'm sure it's all useful information but I'm hoping it gets filed away in the same place as 80s commercial jingles and cartoon themes.

We still have to paint and decorate.  In six months we will still need to paint and decorate.  At this point I don't care.  I can shower and bathe in my own home and it's pretty.  It's the nicest room in the house.

Without further ado, here are some quick and dirty before and after shots.

How'd'ya like them apples?!

Actually, I lied before.  It isn't the nicest room in the house.  The nursery is pretty good too.  Pete spent a week DIY-ing the panelling and we spent two days wallpapering. (Top tip: don't wallpaper.) Of course it won't be in proper use right away but it's still nice to know it's done and we have a place to store most of Pruin's things.

I think we're done with home renovation for awhile.

  1. Look, I, I WELL KNEW your bathroom wasn't exactly in the best condition before, and I know I've already seen a couple of snaps of the NEW bathroom, but nothing could quite prepare me to see before-and-afters side-by-side. HOLY MOTHER OF A GRAVY BOAT. I love the new layout of the fixtures, and the floor, and just how clean and white and pristine it looks. It looks like some shit out of a Martha Stewart catalog. I like the colors of the nursery too. Congrats! It must feel like a well-deserved accomplishment.
