Ensuite mini-reno wraps

I’ll win no awards for speed my mini-renovation of my ensuite bathroom, having started on Saturday and wrapping Tuesday afternoon with fitting a replacement shower arm as the old had decided to give up the ghost (broken). As I mentioned in an earlier post, I’ll not be called on to be painting any of the Vatican’s chapels anytime soon, my painting skills leave much to be desire, though I am happy with how things have turned out.

When I originally set out to paint the ensuite on the weekend I was going to paint a lighter colour, an aqua marine colour in fact, however after playing around with Taubmans visualiser tool I quickly determined that I hated that colour and it would be a big mistake; thank the stars for such tools is all I can say. Based upon that experience I then sought other colours within their range, looking at a whole array of light and dark colours, however the darker colours very much spoke to me.

When I told family and my housemate of my choice there was instant concern that the choice was too dark for such a small room, however they weren’t acknowledging the room has a large amount of light (though awful looking) tiles and a large mirror that help to accentuate light within the room. Now that Taubmans ‘Deep Water’ has been applied to the walls I can tell you it looks amazing and, dare I say, has made the room look somewhat stylish. I will need now to update the towel rail, toilet roll holder and reconsider certain other items within the room to make it all match, but the look has much improved now.

Sadly, taking the tape off my cornices has resulted in nearly all now needing to be touched up. Rookie error, I think I might have put the painters tape on too early. I’ll not be applying to THE BLOCK any day soon after this foray, that’s for sure.
