My husband and I bought our house over a year ago and the one downfall was the bathroom – the rest of the house is beautifully painted and has polished timber floors and a large yard. I decided to tackle a renovation project to give it new life and tie the bathroom together with the rest of the house.
The bathroom tiles are in fantastic condition. It's just the ugly colours that let the space down. The floor tiles needed a very good scrub after painting but we are looking to keep them for now.
We used the Dulux Renovation Range to freshen up this bathroom. We also painted our mirror and hooks with a light blush spray paint after sanding back with 80 and 120 grit sandpaper by hand.
It felt like a giant job and very overwhelming but if I can do it, anyone can. I tackled it with a friend over one weekend and I could not be happier.
Two tips. The gloss paint dries very quickly so if you need to cut in and roll best to have a buddy or use both hands and do small areas at a time. The tape needs to be taken off as soon as you finish that area and then re-tape for following coats.
Tools and materials
Electric sander – 120 grit (very high gloss and needed to buff back) followed by 180 and final 400 grit before priming. I used 400 grit by hand to lightly sand between coats.
