Bragitty Brag Brag

The ensuite of horrors is no more.
Now it's more like the ensuite of hotness.

Hubby informs me that the technical building-project-management term for our reno result is s#?t hot - but I'll go with gorgeous, clean, simple, clean, functional, clean...
Did I mention clean?

So, I finally have the guts to reveal just how horrific the old bathroom was.

I don't know where to start -
with the dirty, impossible-to-redeem mould ridden grout, the ugly, cracked shower screen, the corroded sink drain, the rotting, chipped tiles, the shuddering, rattling pipes, the damp that was seeping into the next room or the festy drains???
Spoiled for choice, really.

Here are a few before and after pics to demonstrate the horror to hotness transformation.

Four weeks from start to finish.
A combination of professionals and mostly DIY enthusiasm and persistence.
When at first the s-bend does not fit, saw and saw and saw again...
You may call me silicone Shar - and it's got nothing to do with my cleavage, unfortunately.




It would be remiss of me not to include some of Hubby's 'babies' here.
He's one proud Papa. And rightly so.


This new bathroom does lack character at the moment.
(And the still-waiting-on-it shower shelf - did you notice?)

I'm pretty sure Hubby's character is ingrained in every surface and fitting that he sweat and swore over though.

And 'no mould' beats 'character' any day of the week right now anyway.

Shar :-)

Fantastic. As we're planning to build & it will include an ensuite of glory, a huge main bathroom for 4 teenagers (goodie) & a guest ensuite, plus a bar & kitchen, i'm all over tile details, power points (i had no idea i'd care about power points??) & shower screens, although i still fancy a shower room. My catch phrase is "this is not offensive" to explain a totally nice, classic, clean lines kind of bathroom, yay!! You've done so well, congratulations, ace taste & execution. Love Posie

Very impressive! As a fellow renovator (I live in a Queenslander so we are in a constant state of renovation) I totally appreciate all the details and fancy pants fittings - you guys did a great job! Now enjoy.

Ah Shar, so pleased to see The Big Reveal now that hubby isn't locked inside! What a spectacular improvement - full marks, my friend! J x

Oooo I love a reveal... and this one looks divine! Great job Shar and hubby, looks like some serious effort has gone into your new baby. I'm sure there will be many happy times spent in there from now on... and no more light's off while you're in there to avoid seeing that horrid plug hole. Ergh, old bathrooms are gross... I know, because we have one :o/
LOVE your silicone Shar comment ;o) xo
