Since repainting my living room in Dulux’s lemon tropics over the summer, I’ve woken up in bed most mornings with the thought of what to do about my ever-pale bedroom. Since I moved in, it’s been white and in the winter months, the room feels extra cold.
Last weekend – in fact, several weeks after buying the paint for this re-decoration (B&Q sale) – I decided to get my brush and roller out again.
Having been in this flat now for over 8 months, I can say that I’ve spent the past few feeling as though I’m some kind of ‘live-in maintenance man‘. When something’s broken or has been in need of improvement, I’ve offered to repair or replace it (unless it’s electrical, of course). I quite enjoy a bit of DIY (working to my own rules and at my own pace) so this doesn’t bother me too much. Until recently, I spent several weeks living in a near-building site-like state as I attempted to repair and redecorate the main living room walls.
By far, this has become my proudest achievement in this property to date:
I am no plasterer and I’ve never been keen on painting but a couple of coats of Dulux’s lemon tropics has, for me, transformed the feel of this previously overly-magnolia property.
But today, I’m going to share with you some recent improvements I’ve made in the bathroom.
