The bathroom

There are a lot of rooms in the Sow's Ear which have not been photographed yet. I'm going to try to post a few photos of the rooms before we renovate them. It will probably be a while before we get to do anything substantial to them but at least I will have a record of it.

We will have to wait until we have more money before we can do anything with the bathroom. At this stage it is fine and functions adequately. The previous owners left it in such a poor unclean state. Behind the bathtub looked like it had never met a mop before, so there was a thick layer of gooey scum to welcome me to our new home.

I oiled the cabinet and timber mirror frame to replenish the wood and to remove the globs of toothpaste ingrained into the wood. Jason removed the cheap timber rails and hooks - leaving behind the bare minimum for us to hang our towels. I changed the moldy cream floral shower curtain with just a cheap plain white curtain.

Funny how such small things like that improve a room. Oh and a reasonable clean helps too!

We will probably paint the bathroom walls and windows to freshen it up until we have some dollars to do a decent renovation. I'd like really like a new toilet!


  1. Hi there, just discovered your blog and are thoroughly enjoying reading all about your renovation. Love the house. Sandy

  2. Loving your info about the house. Our bathroom is in much worse condition than yours - did you end up painting? We, too, can't afford to update just yet, so the walls were painted and I regrouted the tiles which made an enormous difference. We also replaced the vanity and the taps and now I think we might just make it through the next few years before we go through the (unwaterproofed) floorboards.


Love to read your comments
