Home Improvement 28: The smallest room in the house

Our loo (separate to the bathroom) really is the smallest room in the house but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t need a bit of TLC from time to time!

This week we’ve:

  • Filled holes in the walls and a small crack
  • Painted the walls and ceiling
  • Painted the woodwork and the very tiny window frame
  • Cleaned up and polished the door handles

We still need to do a couple of bits and bobs but the ball is rolling. I’m still avoiding the sideboard etc though I am determined to get it done within the one week deadline! We also had it confirmed today that our shower is beyond repair so I need to start looking into finding a replacement. With my ever growing bump, the bath is becoming increasingly difficult to negotiate so I really ought to get on and sort it out. Argh – so many things to do! There’s only one way to get it done though, and that’s by getting on and doing it…

    when I saw the title I thought it was going to be the nursery, then I realized you meant a loo! LOL

      🙂 Hopefully it won’t be too long before we actually get to do the nursery!

  2. Hopefully some of your motivation will rub off over here! Our sink pipe burst about a month ago while we were away for the weekend and the wooden toilet floorboards are now warped! It’s still useable though so we haven’t been bothered to do anything about it, though it’s a bit like using the bathroom of a fun house.

    We WILL get round to putting down new boards….we WILL…

    Sigh. Houses. So much work!

      I know – it seems like you just finish one thing and another crops up straightaway. Maybe you could turn it into a fun house theme with wobbly mirrors?! x
