Bathroom makeover...

If you follow me on instagram you would have noticed that over the Easter weekend we did a spot of DIY. It's tradition, no?  A long weekend gives a chance to crack on with some jobs.  So, this weekend we sanded and painted our bathroom and landing floor dark slate grey.  

The floor upstairs was a mix of stained dark wood and white painted floors.  Both were done 8 years ago when we moved in.  Both were scuffed, and tired looking.  In need of a face lift and continuity to make the upstairs space look bigger. 

I was initially worried that it would look incredibly dark, there isn't much natural light in our landing, but three coats later the finished floor is wonderful!  Smooth, a great colour and perfect (in my eyes).  We used Ronseal Floor Paint in Slate Grey.  It was easy to apply and covered the floor well.  The colour is a true dark grey.  

Our bathroom is not finished.  Still much painting to be done.  We have tongue & groove paneling around the room, I am wanting to paint it a pale grey or perhaps this blue.  What do you think?  I am also on the hunt for a small kilim or persian rug to use as the bath mat.  I love this trend.  More images of this trend can be found over on Apartment Therapy.

  2. We are also thinking bathrooms at the moment (though creating new ones, not renovating) and I lobe the idea of your grey floor with the tongue and groove paneling (we are also having this in our main bathroom) Can't quite make the leap with the Persian rug, but this maybe too do with the amount of Arab tat that my husband has! (he was born in the middle east!)

  3. we are DIYing at the moment - our living room, in fact the colour is very similar to the one you've mentioned, it's a really lovely calming blue
    I absolutely love those rugs, i've been hunting for one for our dining room on ebay for ages, but they are so expensive!
