Our Bathroom Renovation

A few months ago we decided to embark on a full bathroom renovation. It’s something we’ve wanted to do since we moved in five years ago but as the old bathroom was pretty functional the bathroom was always low on the list of priorities. But when our plans of getting an extension this year fell through we decided instead to do the bathroom. Over the last few months we have…

Our Bathroom Renovation – Halfway Through!

This week we have been having our bathroom renovated. As we only have one toilet in our house this process has been quite stressful and I am so glad that we’re going away tomorrow and will have access to a toilet, bath and shower whenever we need one over the next few days. It also means we won’t be here to see the rest of the renovation unfold, instead we…

Our Continual DIY Projects | AD

Our Current Bathroom

One room in our house that we’ve never fully updated is the bathroom. We gave it a coat of paint, installed some spotlights in the ceiling and put in an extractor fan a few years ago but apart from that it has never really changed much – just updating storage options as we’ve run out of space. The time has come though to update the bathroom fully and so during September…

Creating a Gallery Wall

When we had our building work completed in May we had our lounge decorated at the same time. Whilst getting everything ready for the building work I found a box of photos in frames from our previous house and thought they would be great to use for a photo wall. As our lounge has gold accessories – to go with the period of the house more than anything – I…
