Finally we have completed our ensuite after being a storage room for 15 years, once we started it took around 3 months to complete as it was done over weekends. 

 

We had to put a new floor in as it was rotted in places, then a new window, new plaster on the walls/ceiling, installed 4 way heat/fan light in ceiling, tiled the flooring, Waterproofed all the plaster, undercoated the walls/ceiling then 2 coats paint, installed the basin, toilet and walk-in shower base, then tiled the wet areas, installed all the fittings for basin & shower (taps). Our son made the barn door out of left over vinyl floor planks

Re: ensuite renovation

Welcome to Bunnings Community @TraceyG1 

Eyes went wide! What a difference you have made. I was trying to figure out which wall was which but it just showed up how much work you have done! That room has been brought into the 2020's kicking and screaming but wow! Loving that mirror an lighting by the way.

How much fun was it refitting the room?

Re: ensuite renovation

Hi @TraceyG1,

 

Let me also extend a warm welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community! I absolutely agree with @Dave-1 that you have really made a difference in your bathroom. I really like how you made black your accent colour and carried it through with your barn door. What a great feature!

Well done!

@TraceyG1 Congratulations on your DIY July project entry, wishing you go well. I must say, the bathroom looks huge, I love it,  what a great transformation you have done, what a good idea and job done by your talented son on the barn door. Did you also build the vanity unit.Well done.

Hi @TraceyG1 

 

What a beautiful transformation, the green tiled feature wall really stands out and gives your bathroom a fantastic look. Plus, that barn door looks so elegant.

 

Thank you for sharing such a wonderful project.

 

Eric

Thanks Joe, the house was an old orphanage back in 1936, this room was the children’s bathroom, it was like a caravan park toilet block. Our son  floor/carpet laying business and his left vinyl planks he makes barn doors out of them. No, The vanity we purchased
