A Fairytale Bathroom

Once upon a time in a land far away (Birmingham) there lived a beautiful princess haggard mum of five.
She lived in a splendid mansion council house, on the outskirts of the city.
She dreamed of grandeur and beauty and lovely things. One thing she dreamed of often was a splendid bathroom.

Oh No! She thought, this is one is too masculine, it would be better suited in a large castle rather than my small mansion.

Soon another vision came along;

Oh No ! She thought, this is beautiful but much better suited to my lodge in the Alps rather than my small mansion.

Finally she was greeted with this vision;

Ahh Yes, she said. This one is just right and would lovely in my small mansion.

Just when she thought her mind was made up she started dreaming of sunken baths;

Eventually, she was gently awoken from her slumber jumped on all over by the kids. She got out of bed and dragged herself to the bathroom. What was there to greet her was a nightmare unimaginable;

(cue scary music)

*Note from Editor: These pictures have been edited to show you the best of the worst of my 24 year old nightmare of a bathroom. To give you a more accurate picture would have scared you away and I don't want to lose my lovely readers.

After the shock had worn off the princess (it's my story) sat down with a cup of tea and contemplated.
What could she do to make her bathroom horror into a bathroom dream.

She could use some decorating tips:

She could find some cool accessories:

She could think more of the kids;

She had to do something just so she could sleep better at night, and maybe start dreaming of a new kitchen instead.

Then along came two shining knights in armour known as Tots100 and Bathshop321 and their fabulous competition to win a brand new bathroom from a choice of twelve suites.

Wow, Wow and Wow, the Princess (sticking with it) set up a Pinterest board immediately for inspiration.

Then she chose her favourite bathroom from the twelve (yes twelve!!) on offer, which was this one.

The Galaxia Showerbath Suite. The Princess fell in love with the P shaped shower bath and the smooth curves of the suite. Her trusted tape measure told her that it would fit perfectly in her small room and her nightmare would become a dream come true.

There is just one thing left to say;

This is my entry into the Tots100 and Bathshop321 Competition


  1. i loved the kids bathroom with the little sinks CG xx

    1. Shows what a mummy I am, I actually liked the kids bathrooms most of all :-)

  2. Good for you and hurrah for the new bathroom! Must be very exciting.

    1. ah Nell, sorry for misleading you, this is my competition entry I've not won anything yet. I can see how you got confused though and have added an extra line to the end of the post to make it clearer. Keep your fingers crossed for me x

  3. this is fab! Good luck - hope you get your new bathroom. We were very lucky to have had a new bathroom done as part of some building work we had done a couple of years ago - so I'm having to sit this one out. xxx

    1. Thank you :) I wasn't joking, our bathroom really is a nightmare we have to live with daily. We are currently getting the things we need to start decorating, all the tiling needs re-doing, it would be so lovely to have a new suite too.
