Mountfield shower finished

Or at least it was until I pulled the shower door handle off. Never mind. I can reattach it. When I find it.

So I made the shower screen pretty simply. I cut a piece of acrylic to fit the opening, made a cardboard frame to sit on top, with about 4mm additional strip on one side to act as the hinge. I glued the hinge to the inside of the opening and painted it gold, so you can't really see it's there and it was done. Somehow the acrylic got a bit scratched up though, and not sure how. Never mind, you can't really tell. Now I just need a bath robe hanging off the door and I think this is done.


How much do I love that wicker laundry hamper?? So cool.


Did I mention I couldn't get a light fitting into the bath enclosure? The roof is glued on and the angle prevents me getting my hand in there with any sort of drilling device. Hence for now it is lightless in there. Still, I am happy. Have a great weekend everyone!

    1. Thank you! The shower screen was a pretty quick and easy fix really, and I am happy that it fits the approximate age of the house. Enjoy your weekend!

  3. You could always put some candles on the edge of the tub for ambiance, baths should be relaxing so maybe being bathed in bright light isn't what the owner prefers?

    1. Hi Sheila. Yes I could do that! I realised I could drill a hole through the back wall and put a small globe there on the back wall. But the candle idea may be nicer for ambience. Xx

  8. Hi Shannon! This looks wonderful! It looks old fashioned... but new too! I love the tile pattern and the colors! In an older house they would not have lights in all the areas... just the overhead light and the sink lights. Lighting has only recently gotten so elaborate that there is a fixture for every task. I think that is part of what makes this bath look so real! And the window would only be a small one on the "fourth wall" anyway! Keep up the Great work!

    1. Thanks Betsy. I agree with the lack of lights over the bath, but I thought it might be easier to see in there with a little ambient light. Perhaps a candle would do.

  9. I just love this bathroom! Everything is so complementary without being boring. Don't be surprised if many are fooled into thinking it's a real sized bathroom! Great work. Oh, and good luck finding that darned door handle!

    1. Thanks Jodi. It is great when things just seem to work and this bathroom has. I doubt I'm gonna find that handle - but I do have spares. Have a great week!

    2. I guess the handle is probably with the teapot lid that also went flying through the air. Sigh.

  10. Hi Shannon! I think that your finished vintage bathroom is Perfectly Wonderful!!!
    When I recall the bathroom which you started with which was just a box, and compare it to what you have now, the transformation is ASTOUNDING! The bathroom with the built-ins looks not only Larger but far more interesting with the enclosed places and the characteristic architecture of the room. The colored tiles both solid and patterned and the plaster wall above it, all add an enormous amount of visual appeal.
    I LOVE the laundry hamper and the little side table beside the tub, and the tiny bit of marbling on the globe lamp to tone down the white; I Love those extra details.
    No matter where one looks, every inch is SPOT ON! ♡

    1. Thanks Elizabeth! I probably need to try to make the ceiling light match the wall lights, but it is good to have this house almost done. The few niggly bits that need doing can wait (eg wallpaper in the lounge). Now I can just collect accessories as I find them to fill this little house up! Xx
