MoneySupermarket Home Improvement Challenge

23 July 2013

Since moving back to our house (after leaving it in the not so capable hands of my three sons), I have gradually decorated rooms bit by bit in order of urgency. So when I heard of the MoneySupermarket #HomeImprovementHero challenge I could not wait to get started. MoneySupermarket gave me £50 to improve the look and feel of a room in our house.

My toilet had a quick coat of magnolia before we moved back in but was looking rather dull and outdated. So with a new look in mind using white paint that I already had in the shed, I went shopping for accessories and bought.

1 roll of wallpaper​ £8.99
1 window blind​​ £7.99
1 piece of linoleum​ £15.00
4 pictures​​ £12.80
Lampshade​​ £4.00
Total​​​ £48.78

First job was to wipe everything down and give it a couple of coats of white silk emulsion and gloss. I then papered the back wall which was dam tricky considering the fan, window, toilet and pipes and I must admit I was rather hot and bothered by the time I’d finished.

I then lay the linoleum myself (OH did have a try but after enduring his moaning I told him to politely move). I then put up the new blind, lampshade and pictures and voila I have a newly spruced toilet chamber.

I can now lock myself in the toilet and admire my handy work. Not bad considering it took a day. Now where to start next?
