We've been working on various parts of the house after three years of living here. When we moved into our home it was new build which meant we didn't even have towel rails or anything to put the toilet paper on. So at that point we were concerned about the fundamentals. As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago we only just got furniture for our upstairs living area... which the cats are thrilled about. I'm fairly certain they think it's all cat bed.
Another area we decided to give a small but effective face lift was our upstairs bathroom. No idea why but the plaster underneath the mirror started pitting which wasn't cool. I didn't take immediate "before photos" but here's our bathroom as we were sorting things out when we moved in.
We discovered the tiles were very reasonably priced online and required no grouting or special tools to speak of. They may not last a lifetime but I figure that just gives me an excuse to get a new bathroom face lift in a few years.
