GIVE YOUR BATH­ROOM A MAKEOVER

The trick to a new look on a bud­get is to use spe­cialty paint and sim­ple wood­work­ing projects to re­fresh your space.

1 re­fresh the ceil­ing

Clean ceil­ing of mould or stains. Cut in edges with a brush, then use a roller to ap­ply a ceil­ing paint for­mu­lated for bath­rooms.

3

PAINT the WIN­DOW Un­der­coat then paint the win­dow re­veals and sill with white enamel paint. Swap the old blinds for fresh white vene­tians.

5

ADD TIM­BER AC­CENTS

In­stall a dado rail. Cut mould­ing to length and nail to the wall. Fill holes with tim­ber filler in same colour, then sand smooth.

2

TRANS­FORM THE TOI­LET Mask off sur­rounds, base and flush but­tons. Sand cis­tern, prime and spray-paint white. Re­place the seat with a black one.

4

BUILD A LAD­DER Use the same tim­ber and tech­nique as the toi­let screen (page 110) to make a lad­der. Space the cen­tral rungs fur­ther apart for larger tow­els.

6

UP­GRADE THE TAP­WARE Go black with your mix­ers, taps and shower head to match the new toi­let seat – you’ll need a plumber for this job.
