Bathroom regeneration


DeOudeHuize
Take the tour with the hosts of De Oude Huize Yard
The last couple of weeks we were busy with the regeneration of a bathroom.  
We live in a house that was built in 1860 and it is 155 years old.  
Our main aim is to keep some of it as close as possible to the original era
but also add some little modern twist to it.  

You can read about the sourcing for the necessary on this blog post 
We re-enameled the bath and you can read about this process on this blog post 

It is now time to show you what has happened!
The bathroom change was major and we started with the plumbing
A door was removed and bricked up.  


Everything was placed where suitable.  
The floor was fitted with a water resistant floor and the shower fitted with a big swivel door 
The free standing bath all fitted with modern hardware.  
The eagle claw feet of the bath go well with the old carpet 
A chair was added to hold the towels on a silver tray 
Close-up of the hardware 
Hardware on the vanity were old pieces that we painted 
An old silver teapot holds the flowers 
The mirror was fitted in an old oak frame.
The taps are also a new sleek design  
Taps with a little bit of attitude 

Lots of blessing from South Africa
