I decided a few weeks ago that I wanted to make changes to our downstairs loo. It was ok really, not long ago painted but it needed a loving touch and some freshening up! I was shopping in Homebase and picked up a paint catalogue and saw a lovely fuschia colour paint which I thought would certainly cheer the downstairs loo up. I said to my husband, “would you mind if we had a pink loo?” He reluctantly replied, “well, we already have a pink fridge, so I suppose so”. I thought I would ask my handyman friend to start on this after Xmas so didn’t think any more of it.
Then I saw that Cath Kidston had a Xmas sale on. That was that! http://www.cathkidston.com/fcs/content/home-furnishing/wallpaper/
I love Cath Kidston and their fabric is lovely. However, I always see if I can pick up a bargain in their sales. Fortunately for me they had one pattern of wallpaper, “Rainbow Rose”, reduced to half-price, so I measured up and ordered a couple of rolls (we have a fairly small downstairs loo!). It came a few days later and I loved it. Its extremely chintzy! My handyman friend came over last week to decorate. It took him a couple of days (fiddly pipework) but the effect is amazing! Its a real “in your face” bathroom! No subtlety spared. I love it! Even my husband likes it and admits its striking!
Unfortunately the pink and green colours in the wallpaper don’t match the colours on the existing splashback. No fear. A bit of quick research on google and you can buy tile paint. in pink gloss! A quick trip down to B&Q and said paint purchased. Along with a pink chandelier! (the existing blue lampshade doesn’t match either). Ta-dah! A brand new bathroom for not a lot of money. Plus a real talking point for those visitors who need to use the facilities!
