Progress report :: the small bathroom
I thought it would be fun to update you on the few rooms in the house that are more or less done. I'm not going to call posts 'reveals' since that would imply a lot more than we actually did. We're on a very tight budget and have a very long list of things we need to do, so there's no gutting, no design, no excessive shopping.
We're trying to make do if we can (and this bathroom was nicely tiled and probably hardly ever used) and buy the things we need at La Curaçao and Home Plus (cheap shops comparable to the Dollar Store).
But we did come a long way from where we started.
I spent hours to clean it all thoroughly and then started adding some storage and some color. Green, of course. The most expensive part was the medicine cupboard with the mirror, but we really needed some space to put our medicines and toiletries, so a simple mirror wouldn't do. The towels are stored in the rolling cart under the sink.
We still need to install a ceiling and a real light (there's just a bulb now), connect the lights in the cupboard and do some painting. One day I'd like to replace that concrete air grate with in a real window and put in a vanity, but for now, I am quite happy with it.
