The Shower-in-the-bedroom..................

............has gone.
Good.
Trouble is it's left a right mess behind it - it was obviously once tiled, so the big plastic shower cubical wasn't the first shower-in-the-bedroom.




Do you ever wish you hadn't started something?

Actually I have been asked why I'm getting all this work done. It's because that's what we've always done, bought a property, updated it, tidied everything up and sold for a profit.
I'm not daunted at all. It will be tidied and painted to the best of my ability, a date is fixed for a carpet and then I'll stand two wardrobes here to hide it all!

  1. It is a bit messy, isn't it, but I am sure you will be able to sort out the worst of it and the wardrobes will hide anything that's remaining as well as being very useful.

    1. I've got two matching wardrobes already and with baskets standing on top to hide the missing coving it should be fine

  2. Onwards and upwards, you can do it.

    1. It's looking better already just with sanding and painting

  3. It's not too bad, I would have expected it to be worse than that. Once you've painted and go the new carpet down, it'll be like nothing was ever there! Will you get someone in to match up the coving and skirting?

    1. The coving is too complicated to do because its all been shaped at the ends of the gap but the skirting board should be easy enough.
      I've got some baskets to stand on top of the wardrobes - should solve (ie hide) that problem!

  4. Do you intend to move on then Sue, when all the work is finished?

    1. When I can't drive I'll have to move maybe before - who knows

  5. Paint and a carpet and it will be good as new. You are undaunted by hard work and will get it done.

    1. I've sanded and given two coats of paint in that corner and it looks better already

  7. I'm the same, I like our home to give us the best lifestyles we can get, so things have to be done. Love the placing of wardrobes to help cover any imperfections.

    1. Should hide the problem from any potential buyers in the future!

  8. It must make the room much bigger now. It will be interesting to see the finished result - know one will ever know when it is completed that there was a shower there.

    1. It makes sense to not have a great big ugly shower in the corner of the bedroom! A great improvement

  9. You have more energy than I have Sue.
    Well done.

  10. Only practicle thing to add is to cap off the drain, without a U bend you might get nasty niffs.

    1. That's already done and under the floor out of sight

  11. I nearly had a mental breakdown the days my kitchen was ripped out

  12. You are doing great Sue, I updated our property after I lost my DH, then sold it and moved to my bungalow, there's a bus stop at the end of the road and I can walk into town in 10 minutes. All in preparation for when I have to stop driving, hopefully not for a long time yet. Having a purpose did help me move on.

    1. I'm hoping that I will be able to stay here for a while but a winter alone may change my mind so it's good to get things done and a bedroom without a shower is much more sensible

  13. You are going great guns Sue but mind you don't overdo it.

  14. Sounds like a sensible thing to do, but then I hate baths and showers in bedrooms - shock, horror, we don't even have an en suite!
    Our son's old cottage had a shower cubicle in the dining room, funnily enough he decided to get rid of that, too.

    1. A shower in the dining room?! much stranger than a shower in the bedroom.Why? is the question that springs to mind

      I've sanded down, done two coats of paint and that corner looks a lot better - from a distance!

    2. It seems that the old man who owned the place before they bought it was unable to climb the stairs to the bathroom, the dining room became his bedroom and only his little dog ever went upstairs to the bedrooms etc.

    3. A good reason and probably easier than a stair chair lift in an old cottage

  15. That will look so much better when you have finished painting and got the new carpet down. I have made a tentative start on our bedroom. It will take some time . . .

    I don't blame you for doing the cottage up and then should you decide to move in the next few years, it will all be ready to go.

  16. Absolutely needed to go and I bet you'd never know it had been there in the first place once you've finished. A woman after my own heart.

  17. I think it's great that you're fixing the house up nicely so if you decide to relocate it will be ready to put on the market. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  18. Sounds like a great project! I can't wait to see it finished.

  19. You are moving right along with your renos. Good for you.

    God bless.

  20. It adds so much space to the room, it's surprising how something that seems small actually depletes the size of a room. We once knocked down a small larder in the corner of the kitchen and were amazed by how much usable space we gained.

    Well done on your plans and your 'get up and go', you're doing a brilliant job. It means you get to enjoy the fruits of your labours AND improve the house for resale in the future :-)

  21. Good for you, its amazing what a difference a lick of paint can make.

  22. I don't think it would be very expensive to have that coving fixed, Sue. It looks like the stuff we had sorted out in our kitchen after removing a built in cupboard. Ours was just stuck on. They just cut it, patched in new coving and covered the joins with filler. When painted you can't tell. Might be worth investigating if you know a good, reasonably priced joiner? Best wishes, Eilidh x
