A while ago I wrote about wanting to improve how the house looks a bit. A lot of this comes down to tidiness and decluttering and all that (I do try, it isn’t terrible!) but it needs some homely touches too. And most of that needs to come from things which can be pretty as well as functional and a few well chosen accessories.
Max is always complaining about the lack of mirrors in the house (we have 1, in my bathroom, so high up I have to stand on tip toes to see in it) and that the girls really need some. They really do, they all check how they look in the door handles 😆 :blush: So I’ve done a bit of saving up and collected some ideas on my Pinterest account, having had my juices squeezed by the lovely bathmat from Next on there (no, this isn’t sponsored!) I’ve actually bought it, and the Homebase soap dish, but I’m rather struggling with the big things. The bathroom currently has nasty racking (with a hamster in residence) and a load of clutter. I want to replace it with this vanity unit, or a similar one from Argos, but so far the only two things I like are out of stock. So I’m wondering about being funkier, with something like the cubes in that image, but I’m not really finding anything I like. It only needs to hold cleaning stuff, shampoo, fresh (ha!) towels, spare toilet rolls etc.
Somehow it isn’t going well; my idea to encase the radiator in a cabinet to produce a shelf with a mirror above it is being thwarted by the bath-radiator-door space being slightly too small to take a ready made one without compromise (butchering it or a door which doesn’t open totally) and I’m getting so frustrated with not being able to pull it all together. So if anyone can find me the perfect cupboards, since I’m failing to Google in a way that produces affordable and desirable, I’d love you forever.
I’m in such a hurry to do the pretty crafty accessory bits, stick up tile stickers and Fimo wall decorations and goodness knows what. I’m never a completer finisher at the best of times, but this time I’m struggling to even start and I WANT to finish!
