Hurry up, we're dreaming...

I've been dreaming of a bathroom I can love for months now... (18 months to be exact) Our little flat has been crying out for a little makeover in the bathroom department since it was first fitted years ago. Sadly the builders have put it on the back burner several times and we never thought it would get done....

That all changed on Tuesday! The builder had text us to confirm so that morning during my daily rush to get ready for work, I cleared everything out ready for the fun to commence. I came home to an empty and cold shell.

                   Terrible photo quality due to bad light and my iphone having no flash. 

I do have a before shot but looking at it now, I don't think I'm ready to share it with the world just yet. Maybe another day. The huge ugly sink has been ripped out along with the circa 1950's yellow bathtub. That mirror unit has now gone too... the only thing that is staying is the toilet as it was only fitted just before we moved in. 

That hole at the back is actually daylight coming through... We're in the middle of a very cold UK snap at the moment so to say it was draughty in the flat on Tuesday night is putting it mildly. Brrrrr. 

So far we've had pipes moved around, plumbed in, floorboards pulled up, ceilings pulled down, plastering done and a whole lot of dust. There's a thin layer of it over everything in the flat. Nice eh? According to the professionals it will be finished by the coming Tuesday. (Fingers crossed) I'm so excited. I've been buying bits and pieces, reading other blogs and scouring Pinterest for ideas so I can't wait for it to be finished so I can make it pretty. I'm going to be making and doing up a few bits for it too, so stay tuned for the after photos and things I've been up to. 


PS: The title of this post came from listening to lots of M83 this afternoon, so I thought I'd share. The album 'Hurry up we're dreaming' came out late last year and I still love it... This single 'Midnight City' is all over the radio at the moment... this live version is incredible. Enjoy!
