Thank you all so much for your fantastic feedback and ideas regarding La Maisonnette bathroom.
It was all very helpful and I'm still thinking things over and reading your suggestions again and again.
Here are some pics of the Farmhouse bathroom.
It's become one of my favourite rooms, which is funny because I don't care much about real life bathrooms at all.
Since I last showed you this room (years ago I know!) I've moved the linen cupboard from the hallway - where it could only be seen through a window - into the bathroom.
Here's the vintage lavabo on the left wall, I've recessed it into the wall just because I wanted some grungy tilework in there. Ha!
I saw a real life bath with an old board across it like that...some things just scream out to be made in miniature.
I'd seen pictures of vintage Hungarian baby baths on the web. I don't know why they're always Hungarian!
Then when I was on holiday here in New Zealand a couple of summers ago I saw one in an antique shop in a tiny country town.
Of course I had to make a mini one.
That laundry basket is one of the wonkiest things I've ever made. It's very flexible!
Now those of you who have keen observation skills may have noticed something missing in this bathroom...
'Oh, yes!' I hear you say 'The toilet'...
I must have something against toilets I guess. The loo in here always annoyed me so I just removed it. So far no one has asked where it is. But I'm going to pretend it's under the stairs in the hallway. One day I'll make a door in the hallway and say that's where it is! Problem solved!!!
And for those of you who asked about putting the loo on the other wall in the Maisonnette.
I have tried it there. It is an option as there's just enough room for it...
but then I thought too much about the pipework. LOL!!!
Decades I ago I lived in a very old building in the city and the loo was outside (fun times!!)...so those of you who suggested that...it's not a bad idea!!!
And those of you who suggested I stop thinking about it, for now that's what I'll do.
So next weeks blog post - I promise no bathrooms.
Have a fun week!
