The phrase “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” has never been truer than with this old cistern.
My husband’s friend took it out of an old retirement home that were updating their sanitaryware and he immediately knew it would be something that would interest us. He sent a photo straight across to my husband to see if we wanted to restore it and use it in the house renovation.
Hello my lovelies,
I’ve added a handy little shelf to the outside lavatory where we can store toilet roll, room spray and the like and I thought I’d share it with you.
We didn’t want to add a toilet roll holder or anything to the room as its only a single skin block wall with lathe and boards on the inside, so it may at times have some damp in the air – and I don’t want mushy toilet roll!
Hello my lovelies!
We’ve been working away like busy little bees over the past month or so, and while we are waiting for the plasterer to come at the end of this month we took on a little side project – refurbishing the original outhouse aka outside toilet/garden’s toilet/outside lavatory…
We’ve been working on the new house since November – staying with my parents while we get the big stuff done – and we are starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel…
While all the things we have been doing between the two of us could easily have been done super quick if we had the money to get a tonne of professionals in, we aren’t in a position to do that, we have to pick and choose what we can and can’t do ourselves, which is why everything is taking so long.
