We inherited a sea of yellow/brown tiles with a matching sink unit, blinds and tiles... This room needed a serious makeover.
I decided to keep the unit and give it a bit of an up-cycle with a new marble top, handles and a lick of paint, saving the frame and sink bowl. We moved the new toilet across to the other wall and put down marble herringbone tiles on the floor, a lick of paint later, pink door and some fun accessories, et voila...
Now the playroom, this room was initially a very bland through room, with no windows, relying heavily on light from the doors to the dining area, the fireplace had been blocked up and it literally felt like a walk through room to get to another one... So we opened it up to join the dining area, changed to floor to solid wood, opened up the fireplace and put a stove in. Painted either side with blackboard paint, put up some picture rails and filled it with pictures and fun kids accessories and toys. It is now a room, if not the most fun room in the house! The first thing I got was the pink sofa and the rest has been gradually added over the last two years, in fact too much gets added, which means a regular de-clutter is often required.
The key to keeping the clutter at bay, is lots of storage, you can't have enough baskets, stacking boxes and drawers for all the little bits. Baskets are so easy to throw things into at the end of the day and look good too!
