Ensuite

Ensuite_Basin_2_s

I used the long weekend well.  I've made a great start on painting my newly renovated ensuite.  The frameless glass goes in next week and then it's all done.  I'm not kidding when I say that it's a miniscule space, smallest ensuite in the universe. Think cupboard and you've pretty much got the dimensions... but oh what a cupboard! My little square wall mounted basin is only 20cm's deep.  It's brilliant for a tiny space (it's intended for a powder room in fact) so is very cupboard friendly. I'm beside myself with excitement at the prospect of tumbling out of bed and into the shower in one seamless movement. I've not had an ensuite before I moved to Warrandyte so perhaps you'll forgive my enthusiasm.
