Shower room makeover

Well it's been a while since I mentioned that our shower room was undergoing a makeover.  And at long last I got around to taking a few photos of it now that it is finished.  It's just lovely to walk into and use a bright fresh and clean bathroom again!

Now it is not prim in style at all as my husband has more of a modern style taste but we both agreed this was a good look for a small, compact room.

It has great storage, something I always seem to need more of and I can hide those extra loo rolls out of sight too! Not to mention all that dirty laundry. P-)

 The doors are walnut colored veneer and we went with an aqua/blue small tile inlay which is also in a vertical strip in the shower cubicle (it is opposite the wash hand basin).

I can breath a sigh of relief now and tick another job done.

It's crazy, though - no sooner have you one job done but several dozen more suddenly pop out of nowhere!
We've had one thing after another, with the washing machine leaking all over the place and needing replaced and then my hubby's car breaking down and needing replaced and then damage to our roof which needs repaired and so I could go on!  Oh the joys of being a homeowner!  Well at least we've still GOT the roof over our heads!! When I think of the devastation so many face after Sandy I'm thankful for all that we do have - we are blessed.

Glad you stopped by and thanks for leaving such sweet comments!
