Happy With That

 
 








 
It's funny isn't it how after a long hard slog to get something done, the last thing you really feel like doing is actually finish it properly.
 
The kids have been living with a clothes airer for towel rails just because we couldn't bring ourselves to install the real ones. And this gorgeous Ghost mirror has been in its box waiting for some admiration. But yesterday, after much cursing and moaning (that comes from using manufacturer supplied fixings!) we finally have a finished bathroom.
 
{{Well, except for that little touch up to the cornice, but, you know}}
 
I love how the Ghost mirror doesn't hide too much concrete. Apart from the clear frame, it bounces back all the lovely concrete from the back wall. Very happy with that.
 
As for the towel rails, it is Plan B, but I think it has turned out probably better that Plan A. We had designed something to be made out of copper, but thanks to a less than enthusiastic plumber we had to rethink it. Originally we were decided to just construct it ourselves, but then looking at the massive chrome shower and fixings right next door, we decided that it would be better to stick with chrome. And so Plan B was born. Tonnes of room for towels, so the boys have no excuse for leaving them on the floor!
 
Hope everyone is having a brilliant weekend. Me? I'm going to have yet another bubble bath.

It truly is the most fabulously imaginative bathroom. And no wonder you just want to have another bubble bath in there!! I would too.

Oh my god!! Completely done! That looks amazing, well done you... and also, I am very happy to learn that I am not the only one who a) can't stop staring at her new bathroom, and b) takes ages just to finish that last step. Not sure why it is, but it took me about two weeks to clean the plaster off the wall tiles, patch and paint the ceiling and cornicing, and take our 'after' photos. You did an amazing job, absolutely love the concrete and that tub.
