Welcome to my new home!

I’ve been renovating this space for a while, and I’m still not entirely sure I’m happy with it, but one of the good things about WordPress is the ease of changing the “theme” (I know, I’ve done it a few times already!).

But one space we’ve renovated recently which I’m very happy with is our bathroom!

For some unknown reason, the bathroom in our house (the only bathroom, although we do have a spare toilet) had no storage, apart from the small mirror cabinet.  NO STORAGE!  In a family house, that’s just crazy!  So we always intended to re-do the bathroom at some point, but when we discovered the shower was leaking, we decided to bring our plans forward.


And thank goodness we did – our bathroom guys discovered the floor in the bathroom was chipboard!!  Chipboard!  In a bathroom!  He said we were lucky we didn’t fall through the floor of the shower!  So we went from a leaking shower, no storage, pale blue floor tiles which show ALL the dirt:


to a lovely new lots of storage, clean, neat bathroom:


We couldn’t do much with the layout, without spending a fortune redoing the plumbing, but I’m really happy with the space we have, and most especially the storage!  The storage! Six huge drawers and a four door mirror cabinet. 


Yay for new bathroom and new blogspace.  I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate my blogthday!

    Oh, WordPress. I wish I liked it more. But yay for the new bathroom! Our first house had one bathroom with no storage whatsoever. When we moved I wanted a closet and extra toilets, and we have both. Isn’t it lovely?!

    Love the new colour scheme – I’m a friend of the red front door! Love the new bathroom – need dark floor tiles!

  15. It looks great! There can’t be too much storage.

  16. Welcome to your new blog home and congratulations on your upgraded bathroom. You did a great job finding space for storage!

    I have my jewelry blog on WP and I find it much harder than Blogger.

  19. Hiya, love the new blog – and great banner photo – is it a beehive quilt?
    Super bathroom – just at the start of our new bathroom project – seems quite daunting but I’m sure worth it in the end!

    Have a happy week.

    • Hi Fleur – yes, it’s my Beekeeper Quilt – just the puffs though, I haven’t joined them yet, still have lots to make! Hope the bathroom goes well, definitely worth it!

  20. I like the new home! And the bathroom looks great. 🙂

  21. It looks lovely – I particularly like the red touches on the neutral+chocolate background 🙂 Yay for fixing things up properly! (Something my house needs too)
