Here is what’s been going on….
the great ‘Bathroom Renovation‘ has begun!
This is what it looked like after I gave it a mini makeover
last time you seen it.
We have a new Claw Foot tub coming as this ones
seen better days.
Mic has started by ripping the ceiling boards down to find
scary wonderful find….our original wood boards in wonderful condition
and a horrid colour!!
All building materials are ordered
and we should be getting under way the weekend after next once the
Boutique Markets in Hobart are done!!
We are leaning towards above-counter bowls for the sink area
on top of an old wash stand/sideboard type set up.
I have found some lovely taps, which I am now trying to narrow down to a final two!
This is what our walls will look like.
We will have the deep Colonial skirting/baseboard, beadboard, then a chair rail,
plaster above that and a deep cornice and our wonderful board ceiling.
The ceiling and beadboard will be white and the walls….
…will be this sort of shade.
I have the colour on a chip ready to get the paint,
but we are not quite at the painting stage yet!
I would of loved to have had the beadboard all the way to the ceiling,
but we had to compromise with the sheer size of the space.
One thing we did settle on was the claw foot tub remaining.
We had thought about removing this for a Family sized shower instead,
but it just won’t work
…and I love the claw foot so much!
You may remember this area from the mini makeover?
Well it will be keeping the clawfoot and getting some lovely white Subway tiles to suit.
I am looking through shower sets right now and have settled on 3
…but I have to get it to 1.
Cant wait to get going on this.
Lots of photos to come.
We are also working on my new workroom, which will start about the same time,
we dug a trench to wire up our Garage…and I got knocked out with a trench shovel!
There is a new oven too!
So much to talk about.
Stay tuned =0)
