Finished powder room

We have finally finished the downstairs powder room. We actually completed it a few months back, but I was still trying to find something else to put in the space. I wanted a surface where visitors using the bathroom could place their belongings. I bought one thing, a small hall table to go in there but it just didn’t suit. I shall have to find another place for it as it is a lovely old piece.

You can read my original thoughts on what I was going to do here.

I then found this great piece at the vintage store. It is an old plant stand (I think) that has a part of a wooden table attached to the top.

We ended up painting the walls in Dulux Duck Egg Blue, which is a lovely constrast to black and white tiles.  I also love my little sink.  The tiler was none too happy about my floor layout but he did a great job on it. The top tiles have a rolled edge on them, hard to see in this photo. I wanted a vintage looking bathroom, no modern large tiles here. The builder told me he last tiled a bathroom like this 40 years ago as an apprentice, so mission accomplished.

The table fits perfectly in here and matches really well.

I have some hooks to put up on the wall yet and I will get a wire basket and fill it with pool towels as this the change room for the pool for both us and visitors.
