If you've ever looked at Real Estate ads before, you know that there's a certain amount of poetic licence used in publishing their photos. Images are stretched to make the rooms look bigger, rooms are lightened to look brighter, green grass appears where there was just dirt and I've even seen blue skies photoshopped into the windows.
However, there's always a room or two that no amount of photoshopping is going to help make it look any better.
Our powder room is one of those rooms. I've decided not to even re-touch these pics - they're here in their dull and dark glory. Let's have a peak.
(How flash is the door knob? I changed it from a very 70's triangle number, to a privacy lock - but the previous handle had just been painted around...)
Ok, here's a little more. This is what you see as you enter.
And if you were sitting down, passing time, you could read this.
Oh, and if you looked up?
So, my generous readers, I'm after some advice. Other than stripping off the vinyl quotes and painting out all. that. blue.. what on earth can I do with the power room?
Perhaps some batten and board? Some thick horizontal stripes? Or just paint it all out white?
oh - demolition, although considered, is not really an option - all other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
