Down Tools

When I was at uni, my friend Rob and I used to watch a programme called 60 minute makeover presented by Claire Sweeney. It was a crappy show but we used to mainly watch it for the cheesy big reveal at the end... That, and whether or not Claire would shout 'DOWN TOOLS!' to all the workers when the 60 minutes were up. It always made us laugh. I'm not even sure why now!

Anyway... as promised, here is my very own (not so 60 min) makeover. This is what the ridiculous room looked like before...

BEFORE - Nice hey?! I don't know how we put up with it for as long as we did.

and now, the big reveal...Drum roll please..........

AFTER - ta da!
Lovely freestanding white sink, thrifted mirror and simple IKEA Billy bookcase

Amazing shower, crisp white tiles, shiny heated towel rail and grey laminate floor. 

Pop of spring colour


I bought some Daffodils last week in Tesco and when I got home, I realised I didn't have a vase the right size. I had a rummage around the cupboards and found an old empty coffee jar. (One of those things that Haz has been asking if I "really need" for some time now) So, after a wash and a quick Ribbon & Twine bow addition, a perfect vase was formed!

So, what do you think of my new room?! I love it so much... looking back on that before photo, I can't imagine having that dark, miserable and dated bathroom back! There are a couple of things still left to do including putting some prints and photos up, but they can be done as and when we get round to it.

Now, onto the next project...x
