Our days have been scattered with working away on the bathrooms still and finishing them off, as well as making more changes in the laundry room.
The finishing touches really feel like they are taking forever, but I guess when you want to be as perfect as you can be, it seems neverending. Days in between waiting for our plumber to show, we have been installing architraves on the windows, hanging up the shaving cabinet in the ensuite, installing the towel rails and toilet holder and adding aluminium angles to the niche above the bath tub. We patched the wall where the tap for the bath has moved and now is ready for the tub to be positioned in place.
In my eagerness to see changes in the laundry, I started priming the walls and the lightness has certainly made a difference, opening up the space and making it feel wider that it is. We then made a start on the tile splash back, kind of a precursor to tiling our kitchen splash back, as we intend to create the same pattern. Originally we were going to have the tile sit under the cabinetry but considering we had ordered 3 boxes, there was plenty to tile all the way up to the top. Anthony had to order more spacers as we decided to use the levelling ones for the subway pattern. Yet to grout, but I’m really loving the look. Since we have ample charcoal coloured grout, I’m going to use that for the laundry tile splashback for contrast.
This weekend the weather forecast is telling us it will be a sunny one, so we are really hoping to be able to finish off the shed, or at least put the roof in and hopefully move our shed items in over the next few weekends. If this goes to plan, then we could be looking at knocking the internal wall down and removing the old laundry over the Easter period. I have also landed myself a full time role in a Digital design agency, so there is definitely a lot happening on my plate, but we keep persisting and making small changes regularly, which are amount to larger things.
