Well, this is it – you’ve heard all about it here – its been a week of upheaval, plaster dust over everything, bathtime and bedtime routines up the Swanny, bathroom related stuff lying in piles around the house, but its finally (more or less) over!
I took the opportunity to take a few before, during and after pics so that we could assess and share the results.
You may think the overall look of the bathroom before was not so bad – possibly a little 70s in decor, but from a distance, not bad. There were a lot of problems though. A broken old plastic cabinet with one of the mirrored sections being propped up below on the soap dish; a rusty old metal trolley acting as our storage receptacle for everything from shaving gels to bath toys and a pile of somewhat mouldy old copies of What Car magazine the hubster insisted on keeping in there; a horrible limescale stained toilet with a chipped wooden seat; a completely pointless stand-alone shower which couldn’t be used due to leakage issues which had caused terrible damp patches on the ceiling below; and a bath with no shower attachments meaning I was left with no choice but to wash my hair using a kitchen jug to rinse.
