My bathroom hath gloom NO MORE!
I gave my bathroom a makeover and I like rhymes.
Your environment has an affect on your overall mood, so if you are often in an environment you find dirty, ugly, uncomfortable or in any other way unpleasant or off-putting, then your mood will definitely be negatively affected! You can end up feeling grim, nauseated, gross, and downright disgruntled as the yucky environmental factors slowly leech away your precious good mood. Just like in the Sims if there’s a mess everywhere, they are saaaaaad. 🙁 🙁 🙁
So I realized that I hated going in my bathroom. With a boring shower curtain of questionable age and cleanliness, showertime was dreaded. There wasn’t anything personal or any art on the walls (as we had removed all this when we were trying to sell the house). There was accumulated unorganized clutter everywhere – it is a small bathroom with very limited counter space – like NONE at all. Things were always falling everywhere. And there was no place to keep towels, which was inconvenient and annoying. The shelf above the toilet was broken and unusable and the toilet itself was an unreliable flusher. I was uncomfortable because there were no mats or anything on the floor, and my feet were always cold. I often neglected personal hygiene – I didn’t want to be in there. But, as a human being, I kind of have to use a bathroom at least some of the time. And our other bathrooms were unavailable or inconvenient. TIME FOR A BATHROOM MAAAAAAAKEOVER!!
I did do some shopping, but mostly the transformation was about cleaning, de-cluttering, and rearranging. I went to Ross dress for less and got a beautiful new shower curtain and brightly colored floor mat! The hardware store provided new knobs for the ugly stainless steel ones. Then I did a LOT of cleaning. And I had a big box to get rid of full of unused products, redundancies, things I didn’t need to use every day, etc. I took everything out and started fresh. I put everyday use items within easy reach. Pretty things migrated to visible places. While I took a lot of stuff out, I did add some stuff back in. Since there wasn’t a first aid kit on the little shelf anymore, I had a place to put towels! I moved in some candles and art and other things that I thought were pretty and brought me joy! The shelf got fixed, the toilet got fixed, the negative environment got fixed. And now my bathroom is a cheerful and inspiring place! Well… about as cheerful and inspiring as a bathroom really can be…
It’s starting to get a little cluttered with use again…
I guess I should go head back in! I need to view the loo, clean the latrine, make the crapper dapper! In short, if you need to find me… I guess I’ll just be hanging out in my own personal wiz palace, AKA Wizzingham Manor.
