Hi All Just under two weeks ago my girlfriend and I moved into a new house (new to us...it was built in 1950 apparently) which needs a whole lot of redecorating and doing up which is why we got it at a good price! I would define myself as a beginner when it comes to DIY and a bit lacking in confidence. As such I have decide to make a start on the downstairs toilet which as you can see from the pics below is in a bit of a state!!! I figured it would be a good place to start as it is only small and is not a room anyone will be spending too long in, so in the likely event that I do not achieve perfection it won't be too much of an issue... My starting point...peeling yellow paint, mould, exposed pipe work, dodgy electics for the light, an old metal window and a hideous vent. The window (plus plenty of mould) The Vent (with mould) Pipe work entry point Horrid plastic sliding door As you can see it is in a sorry state but I think it has potential to be quite a decent toilet. The mould present is due to it being a single brick construction which is literally a single brick thick, so it gets very cold and a bit damp. My intentions in no particular order (more on that later): Replace the horrible metal window with a nice uPVC one Replace vent with an extractor fan which will come on with the light Tidy up wiring for the light Add a small handwash basin Scrub down, rub down and treat the walls for the mould Take measures to prevent mould returning (dry lining etc) Carpet the floor Remove sliding door and install a proper door Ok so there are a fair few jobs to be done but I'm fairly confident I can achieve what I want with this but I will need plenty of advice and encouragement on the way I'm sure!!! My first question would be what order would most people do the different jobs in? I have an idea in mind but owuld love to know how more experience people would tackle this project. Any help and advice would be very much appreciated!!!
