I'm dreaming of a new bathroom!

I just wanted to show you my new bath and other stuff that will be going in my new bathroom! I have dreams about using my nice new bathroom. We have been ‘putting up’ with a horrible, cold, dark, damp, spider infested bathroom for three years now and what's worse, it is downstairs, about as far away as you can get from the bedrooms upstairs!

Here's my new bath! Unfortunately it isn’t usable yet due to the fact that not only is it not plumbed in but the room it is standing in needs a lot of work doing to it! Still, the bath is in position and that’s a start! I can kind of get my head around how the room will look now and how much space I have left to work with. As you can see from the style of the bath, I will be having a vintage style bathroom. The silver on the walls is insulation material.

I wanted a big French style mirror for one of the walls and bought this one in Laura Ashley. It is one of the few vintage style things that shop does now.

This is the radiator/towel rail. It is new but Victorian style

Hopefully my dreams will become reality soon!


  1. Dreaming your bathroom!! And also i love Raula Ashley mirror.So nice!!

  2. Congratulations on your great taste Susie!
    Can't wait to see it finished!
    Have a lovely weekend!

  3. It's going to look great! Looks a lot like my odl bathroom (these pics are rubbish though):

  4. Hello Susie, your new bathroom is going to be great, I love that bath and the vintage frame from L. Ashley. In my two daughters bathroom I have put an old bath pretty much like yours... some day I will do a post of their bathroom.

  5. What lovely things for your new bathroom! I love your new bath and the mirror is just right to go with it:)

  6. I've always wanted a claw foot bath.Your bathroom is going to be fabulous,and worth all the waiting and hard work.Can't wait to see the finished result!


  7. Oh WoW! Fabulous, have you had a sit in the bath to see what it's going to feel like? LOL XXX

  8. Hi, Susie,
    Your bathtub is my dream bathtub. I have always wanted a tub like this. I remember taking baths in a tub like this at my granny's house. The Laura Ashley mirror will be perfect in your new bath. Can't wait to see the completed project! Vicki

  9. I knew your bathroom would have a tub like that! I love the decorating style you're going with. It's just what I would imagine in your cottage! It must be so exciting, making your home exactly the way you want it to be, but also very nerve-wracking. I bet you'll be so happy when it's done!

  10. Susie, I've got another award I'd like to give you! It's the Attitude of Gratitude award, and I think you definitely deserve it!

  11. Oh, that's going to be a wonderful place to soak and relax. You lucky girl. You'll just need a nice big soft fluffy robe for traipsing back and forth to the bedroom!

  12. Looking to modernise your bathroom with some new and stylish Bathroom Furniture.? Spacify has everything you need.

  13. Hello Susie
    Thank you for your lovely comments. I am with you there on dreaming of a new bathroom! A major one on my wish list. I like the look of your dream bathroom. Mine is a yukky avocado, shht, don't tell anyone ;-) Also has lots of spiders lurling here and there...
    That will have to go! I must be patient though we are redecorating the entire house ourselves and that takes time! I wish for you to have your new bathroom soon.
    Take care

  14. It looks like your new bathroom will be fabulous. What a great claw foot tub. My parents had a tub like that in the house I grew up in. You have chosen some really nice accessories too.

  15. Hello darling, I will start this comment by telling you how much I have missed you these past few weeks. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind words and prayers.

I am now off to stroll around your blog to see what I have missed.

    I truly missed you luv
