Mum transforms her tiny boring bathroom – and you won’t believe it’s the same room

A mum has revamped her tiny bathroom from boring to beautiful – and people can’t believe it’s the same room.

The upcycling-savvy mum posted the incredible transformation on her Instagram page @prettyprospetcottage – and got hundreds of comments from people who couldn’t believe the difference.

But after the mum got creative the old bath was ripped out and replaced with a classic freestanding model.

The main wall now has striking navy and gold starburst tile. the floor has funk hexagonal-patterned  linoleum and the walls are covered in slanted white tiles on one wall and tiles and navy paint on another.

Posting on her Instagram page, the mum admitted the bathroom has totally “bewitched” her.

She said: “I absolutely love our bathroom, if only pups would give me enough space for a long soak in the tub.

“Once it was finished this room had me totally bewitched and everytime I walk passed I take a little moment and just stare at it as, let’s face it, there’s fat chance of me actually having time to soak in here with the growing list of things to do!”

“The mum won praise for her chic design and for managing to make such a small space have a huge impact.

Whoever said parenting was easy was obviously lying. It can be such hard work! Luckily we now have a Facebook group for Scottish mums and dads to share their woes, worries and winning advice.
