For a few reasons we get a rather large tax return each year and the money usually goes toward one or two pressing house or garden projects, like a new gate or a new back door. This year we decided to tackle our bathrooms upstairs. We have two but had only used one over the past few years since the shower in the other one was broken. We´ve fixed that now and did a few other improvements. In the other bathroom (the one we´re talking about today) we made a few updates as well. This room has made an appearance on this blog in the past, read more here.
The one thing I didn´t like about this room was the vanity. It was tiny, ugly and in a bad condition. I wanted to get rid of it as soon as we bought the house, but of course that didn´t happen until now - five years later. Ha. Better late than never I guess. I got an (overpriced) old table on Ebay and my husband heroically remodeled it (the thing fell apart when we first put the new sink (from Ikea) on it so he had to completely rebuild it, argh. Never buying anything old from Ebay again. Maybe). But! Once it was sturdy again I painted it green and it´s my new favorite thing.
Love it. And look at all that space surrounding the sink!
I also got an (overpriced again, but new and sturdy!) towel holding ladder thingy so that we could get finally rid of the moulding Ikea contraption we had before. I quite like it.
Otherwise the room is the same. The wallpaper, if anyone is wondering, is holding up okayish. The room has a roof window so there´s not too much humidity but of course the wallpaper is still peeling off in some places, but so far it´s a quick fix really. I expect at one point we´ll have to re-do it, but that´s still a few years off I believe. And yes, I´m into all things Weleda.
Bye little bathroom! You´re my favorite!
