Trailer Bathroom make-over

Last year we bought a brand new trailer, but they only seem to come with “dead ugly” wallpaper . Room by room, I have unleashed my inner DIY tiger to slaughter the ugly. This post showcases the bathroom, and more rooms will be posted soon.

Re-purposed Bathroom Cabinet

When we moved into our home, we had a very skinny bathroom upstairs. Every time the door opened, it banged into the bathroom, and your knees could knock the sink when you sat on the toilet. We decided to expand the bathroom, making the adjoining office a bit smaller.

The “office,” was previously an old, second-floor kitchen. When we moved in, there was still a big stove outlet and a set of cabinets with a kitchen sink. Now, these cabinets were u-g-l-y, and we just stuffed junk in them — hair accessories in one cupboard, old Yellow Pages in a drawer, a bunch of unused frames under the sink — so it wasn’t too heart-breaking to decide to pull them out and move the wall over the resultant foot-and-a-half. But then we still had the dilemma of what to do for a new bathroom cabinet.

Working with a budget, we couldn’t really afford to pay thousands for a nice big cabinet with a modern counter-top. So I decided to re-work those fugly cabinets. My husband was sceptical, but I knew they had a future.

DIY Bath bombs

Once I learned how easy it was to make your own bath bombs, they have become my go-to homemade gift. You can customize the size, shape, scent, and packaging to work for almost any occasion.  I know I’d love it if my friends gave me rose-scented bath bombs for Valentine’s Day!

Hand-painting Fabric

I was looking for some fabric for a tiny bathroom window curtain in the cottage, but could not find the exact colour scheme I was looking for. So, I decided to make my own using a Martha Stewart stencil and fabric paint. So easy. So good. Imagine making your own tea towels or pillows using this technique!!
